The next time somebody tells you Prop 19 isn't needed because "marijuana is already practically legal in California," call 'em on their bullshit. California reported nearly the same number of marijuana arrests in 2009 as in the previous year, which set a record all-time high for pot busts.

In 2009, there were 17,008 felony and 61,164 misdemeanor marijuana arrests in California, for a total of 78,172.
In 2008, there were 17,126 marijuana felonies and 61,388 misdemeanors, for a total of 78,514. This was the highest number of marijuana arrests since pot was decriminalized in California in 1976, according to Dale Gieringer ofCalifornia NORML.
"The record is clear that the war on marijuana has failed," Gieringer told Toke of the Town Wednesday afternoon.
