Weed Arrests Outnumber Violent Crime Arrests
The War on Drugs pertinaciously continues unabated, despite spreading marijuana legalization and a growing desire for new directions in drug policy. In fact, last year more than three times the number of people were arrested for drugs—including weed—than for all violent crimes combined.
According to the FBI’s newest Uniform Crime Report, marijuana arrests in 2016 rose by more than 75,000, compared to 2015, which is an increase of 12 percent. Overall drug arrests in 2016 increased to 1.57 million—a 5.63 percent rise from 2015—which includes marijuana arrests.
STATISTICS AVERAGE 3 DRUG ARRESTS PER MINUTE, 24/7, THROUGHOUT 2016
More than four out of five of those arrests—84.6 percent, or 1,330,401 arrests—were simply for drug possession. Marijuana arrests also increased—about 41 percent of all drug arrests were for marijuana, with the vast majority being for simple possession.

Raspberry Kush (Indica)
A dark green bud with hints of purple that is literally frosted with trichomes and crystals. It is an incredibly dense nug with brown stigmas interlaced throughout. The Raspberry Kush experience is a couch-lock, relaxed, and lazy experience. A great smoke for an after-work kick back, or a night cap that will put you soundly to bed.
Bob Marley’s Son Prepares to Create Amsterdam-Style Coffee Shops
If you’re one of Bob Marley’s eight children, you can pretty much choose to do whatever you want in life. Most of them went into areas connected to what made the world know and love their father: music and ganja.
One of the sons, Rohan Marley, has pursued an endeavor with an even better outlook for those of us who also love coffee.
After a brief athletic career with the Canadian Football League and Jamaica’s national soccer team, Rohan, 45, bought 50 acres in Jamaica’s Blue Mountains and started Marley Coffee, then created House of Marley, a brand of sustainable products and a lifestyle movement.
