I appreciate his attempt at a point, but mathematically, if we had more people arrested for violent crimes than marijuana in a time when marijuana is illegal, it would merely indicate that the country is insanely violent; because there should — even under illegality — always be thousands of times the number of weed smokers as violent criminals.
