Colorado Marijuana Arrests Continue Despite Legalization

Hundreds were charged for possession of less than 2 ounces of weed in 2013.

Police try to stop a student as he runs through a barrier on April 20, 2012, at the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colo. He was run down by police and arrested. Police blocked off the Norlin Quad to prevent a 420 marijuana smoke out.

"Law enforcement officials surely have better things to do with their time than arresting and prosecuting adults for using a less harmful substance than alcohol," he says. "Adjusting to new laws is not a new concept for police and prosecutors, and it appears they are doing it successfully in this case."
