New Zealand cannabis arrests in 2012 show sharp increase (up 75%)

Julian Buchanan‘s insight:

The war on drugs is essentially a war on cannabis.

The report talks about drug related crime – but these offences are drug defined crime. If drugs were decriminalised the police could instead concentrate upon catching criminals who commit offences like sexual abuse, physical violence, burglary and fraud.
