MARIJUANA-ARRESTS.COM has been created by the Marijuana Arrest Research Project. We study race, police policy, and the growing number of arrests for marijuana possession and other victimless crimes in large U.S. cities, especially New York City.

Our publications rely on public data, and on the first-hand knowledge of current and former police officers, public defenders, judges, assistant district attorneys, and others who work daily in the criminal justice system. We are interested in hearing from anyone with knowledge about the policing of marijuana possession and other misdemeanor offenses.
