Marijuana: One pot bust every 42 seconds, FBI stats show

Law Enforcement Against Prohibition has been one of the national organizations most active in promoting Amendment 64, the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act. No surprise, then, that the group puts an election-oriented spin on just-released crime statistics from the FBI for the year 2011. According to LEAP, the data shows that one marijuana arrest is made every 42 seconds.
