Taken from a study by the "Pew Center for the States."

That is up from one in 77 25 years ago.

Georgia is the highest at one in 13, Ohio is one in 25 and New Hampshire is one in 88. New Hampshire had the least restrictive laws and the most "personal freedom" in a recent report. If you can buy a firearm there, you can carry it concealed with no permit. I wonder if that has anything to do with their numbers. I believe Georgia has a Carry law too though I didn't check for sure.

Anglo's 1 in 18, Latino's 1 in 27 and Blacks 1 in 11.

It would be interesting to know where all the states ranked and to follow these numbers over the coming months.

We have Sheriff Joe and tent city. Seems to work.
Want to borrow some tents? Summers are so lovely here.

If the numbers keep going up, we certainly can not "build" prisons for all of them.

I wonder how many of those are due to pot related crimes.

I would guess a lot are. If you watch, seldom does a person get arrested for just one crime. The police engage in "piling on" or "stacking" charges and usually there are three or more different charges. That insures that the person will get prison time or be forced to plea bargain for probation. This practice did not often happen 25 years ago. Locally, the city police engage in that practice and the Sheriff and State Patrol do not.

The user of MJ is not a criminal in my mind. They are easier to catch so they take the hit! I would guess that they make up a large part of the mumbers quoted.
