- Report (from old GMM site):
We had an article in one of the Swedish evening papers before the march. That led to attacks with eggs and spitting. We were about 250 walking and maybe 500 listening at the meeting. No arrests in Stockholm ever. No other press except for www.drugnews.nu

Cost of drug warEdit
|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 average $30,600 per inmate in 2007. See: Drug war causes high U.S. incarceration rate. See: Economics - Drug War Facts. See: 32 Reasons Why We Need To End The War On Drugs - Business Insider. See: The Budgetary Impact of Ending Drug Prohibition.|
