More than 1.5 million people were arrested for drug offenses in the US last year, and more than 693,000 of those for marijuana offenses. The figures come from the FBI's 2013 Uniform Crime Report, which was released today.
That's about one pot bust and slightly more than one other drug arrest every minute, 365 days a year. The vast majority of them are for simple possession. Over 87% of all marijuana arrests and 82% of all drug arrests were for possession only.

The Number crunchers in our Governments are still on the fence, is there more money to be made in Tax or in fines..I'm Guessing they still favour fines and criminal records over Taxation and a little bit of chill out time for the masses....
The masses cant be trusted to chill man. God forbid the masses say they cant be arsed.
