A new survey widely reported today shows 13% of adults smoke marijuana. That's twice the number from a poll three years earlier.
I would suspect in the younger adult demos the percentage is well north of 20.
As we continue to read about those seventh degree possession arrests or the plant spotted through a neighbors window, or the ones spotted in a field in the Town of Watson, it's apparent there is room for growth in arrests.
That is how we measure success isn't it ?
The dichotomy on pot has always been there. I remember in my news days, reporters would cover the cop presser on pot plants seized and carry on about the War on Drugs and gateway drugs. Then that night the same reporters would gather at a house party and light up a doobie. And that was 30 years ago..
Goodness knows what happens these days.
