Police arrest more people for marijuana use than for all violent crimes — combined – The Washington Post

A new report tallies the staggering toll of the drug war.

On any given day in the United States, at least 137,000 people sit behind bars on simple drug-possession charges, according to a report released Wednesday by the American Civil Liberties Union and Human Rights Watch.

Nearly two-thirds of them are in local jails. The report says that most of these jailed inmates have not been convicted of any crime: They’re sitting in a cell, awaiting a day in court, an appearance that may be months or even years off, because they can’t afford to post bail.

Gary Johnson: GOP officials pledge support after Trump gaffe | New Mexico News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson says he’s receiving support from GOP officials after a video was released of Donald Trump making lewd comments about women in 2005.

In the video, which was released by The Washington Post, Trump can be heard saying vulgar terms about kissing and touching women.

On Saturday before a rally at the University of New Mexico, Johnson called Trump’s comments “not presidential” and “over the top.”

“I would have never said something like that in my entire lifetime, and his apology was not an apology at all,” Johnson said.

Trump has since apologized saying that the incident doesn’t reflect who he is today, and that the conversation was “locker room talk.”

Johnson said that’s no excuse.
