@Regran_ed from @freedom_faction - For the second year in a row, arrests for #cannabis in the #UnitedStates have gone up, also dwarfing the number of arrests for violent crime. The increases have come in the form of arrests for possession, not manufacture and sales.

According to the FBI’s annual Uniform Crime Report, out of 1,632,921 arrests for “drug abuse violations,” 36.7% were for possession of cannabis. That amounts to 599,282 people, which is up from the previous year’s figure of 587,516. In contrast, as Forbes noted, arrests for the sale and manufacture of the plant dropped from 65,734 in 2016 to 60,418 in 2017.

Considering the drop in arrests for the sale and manufacture of cannabis, it is apparent that the increase in arrests for weed is due to possession offenses. In total, just under 91 percent of cannabis arrests were for possession. Despite a ten-year decrease in arrests prior to 2016, the last two years’ crime data show enforcement is now on the rise.

Forbes calculated that according to the figures, a cannabis bust occurred every 48 seconds in the United States last year.

Meanwhile, arrests for violent crime in 2017 reached 518,617, a figure 21 percent lower than total cannabis arrests. Though numerous states have #legalizedcannabis, the federal government continues to classify it as a dangerous #drug. “Actions by law enforcement run counter to both public support and basic morality,” said Justin Strekal, the political director for NORML, a cannabis advocacy organization. “In a day and age where twenty percent of the population lives in states which have legalized and nearly every state has some legal protections for medical cannabis or its extract, the time for lawmakers to end this senseless and cruel prohibition that ruins lives.” Though those arrested for cannabis possession are not always cycled through the prison system, the fact that they are processed through the courts at all highlights a monumental waste of resources spent to penalize victimless crimes.

We have to make these "federal" drug pushers called clinic DRs be held accountable😒 They RX this shit like candy... A drug seekers DREAM.. They know what they do...trust me😁
It’s a wonder her arm didn’t fall off.
From December 2002 to January 2010, more than 335,130 #prescriptions for #painkillers were issued under the name of Dr. #KatherineHoover at the #WestVirginia clinic where she worked — a rate of about 130 per day, assuming she worked seven days a week.
Another doctor who worked with her in the #MountainMedicalCare Center, in tiny #Williamson, West Virginia, was charged with selling prescriptions to people he never examined, and the office manager was arrested as well. The clinic was closed. But Hoover was not prosecuted and headed to the #Bahamas while her #colleagues faced #prison.

In her first extended interviews since then, Hoover — whose name was invoked as a symbol of the deadly #opioidcrisis at a recent congressional hearing — told #NBC #News there is a very simple reason why the government did not throw the book at her. “I was never charged or ever investigated because I didn’t commit any crimes,” Hoover said by telephone. “I prescribed narcotics to people in pain. I did everything I could to help people have a better life, which I told the FBI.” “Every prescription I wrote was justified for the person who had gotten it,” she added.

Hoover, 68, wrote more opioid prescriptions than any other doctor in West Virginia during from 2002 to 2010, government investigators said in court documents. As of 2016, West Virginia has the nation’s highest rate of #fatal #drug #overdoses due to #opioids.

Archibald Vivian #Hill was a #British #physiologist and #biophysicist who received the 1922 #Nobel_Prize for #Physiology or #Medicine for discoveries concerning the production of heat in muscles, research which helped establish the origin of #muscular force in the breakdown of #carbohydrates with formation of lactic #acid in the muscle. Hill's early experiments researched the effects of #electrical stimulation on nerve function, the mechanical efficiency of muscle, #energy processes in muscle during recovery, the interaction between #oxygen and #hemoglobin, and quantitative aspects of #drug kinetics on muscle. Hill combined aspects of #physics and #biology, a discipline which he championed as #biophysics.

Armed men shot dead #journalist #MarioGomez as he was leaving his home in southern #Mexico, the El Heraldo de Chiapas newspaper reported on Friday.

The 35-year-old, who worked as a news correspondent for the publication, is at least the 10th member of the #Mexican #press to be #killed this year.

Gomez "had recently filed a complaint because he was receiving threats," a colleague at El Heraldo told the AFP news agency.

According to the media rights group Article 19, the journalist had also been threatened in 2016 for publishing articles on #corrupt state officials.

In a statement, the Chiapas state prosecutor's office condemned the shooting and vowed to "exhaust all lines of investigation." Almost 29,000 people were #murdered in Mexico last year in crimes linked to warring #drug #cartels and other #criminal #gangs. At least 11 journalists were among the dead.

Along with Syria, Yemen and Afghanistan, Mexico is one of the most dangerous countries in the world for the media, according to Reporters Without Borders. Since 2000, more than 100 reporters have been killed.

The organization's Mexico representative, Balbina Flores, said Gomez's murder "saddens and burdens us." "We demand a full investigation and a guarantee of security for his family."
