Drug war fact of the day

From Jim Hightower on the Government's Sick War on Marijuana.
Meanwhile, the holy warriors have become more fanatical and thuggish than ever. A marijuana arrest is made every 41 seconds in America - nine out of ten of them for mere possession. In 2004, 772,000 Americans were arrested on marijuana charges - more than for all violent crimes combined. And 40,000 Americans are in prison today for this victimless crime - more than the entire prison populations of eight European countries.
Hightower has a big following. It's good to have him on our side.
