GMM:

  • Report (from old GMM site):

We began the manifestation in "le parc des chartreux" in the first Lyon's district near 16 h. It was raining and we were just between 30 and 40 persons. We put music near 18 h when the sun came back. Near 19h, 70 at 80 were together. We finished at 21 h and we cleaned the park. More and less 200 cannabinophiles passed to support this plant. Our slogan was : "with prohibition, no prevention (safety)". The police stayed far and they didn't come. A local paper, spoke our gathering.

Next year, we try to do something more important. It will be an election year in France.

Cost of drug warEdit

See longer article: Cost of U.S. drug war. See also: Drug war charts and maps. See cannabis arrests. See Drug war causes high U.S. incarceration rate.
Cost of U.S. drug war. Even $1.5 trillion dollars is conservative since many crimes are committed in order to get money for drugs. Correction costs alone averaged $30,600 per inmate in 2007.

See: The Budgetary Impact of Ending Drug Prohibition.
Cost of U.S. drug war

A Chart That Says the War on Drugs Isn't Working. By Serena Dai. The Atlantic Wire. 12 Oct 2012. "The numbers on this chart alone don't add up to $1.5 trillion, which represents a more inclusive count of drug control spending, with prison costs and state level costs determined by the Office of National Drug Control Policy, but instead to $800 billion." See Drug war charts and maps. Share link.

The majority of people incarcerated in prisons and jails in the USA are in due to drug-related offenses, crimes to get money for drugs, or drug-related parole or probation violations. Wikipedia: Drug-related crime. The number of inmates in the USA has increased almost 5 times over since 1980. The USA has the highest incarceration rate of any nation (b c). Compare incarceration rates worldwide. See cost of U.S. drug war: 1.5 trillion dollars! Cannabis is safer! Share link.


College versus cannabis incarceration
