The author of the article would have the public believe that the large number of arrests were all sent to prison. That is not true, the vast majority of marijuana arrests are not felonies thus a ticket is issued and settled in a city court. Only the offenders who have surpassed the felony amount of marijuana in possession or trafficing has a chance at prison. Getting caught with a joint (marijuana cigarette) or some small amount of "personal use" hardly makes that person a target for prosecution. If interested one could research the numbers and you would see that I am correct and very few marijuana suspects go to prison unless there is more to the story.....
