Dana Beal busted again

Dana Beal, an East Village medical marijuana activist who runs Cures Not Wars and organizes the annual Global Marijuana March in May, was arrested on Thurs., Jan. 6, with 186 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop in Barneveld, Wisconsin, according to CelebStoner.com. He and the car’s driver, Lance Ramer of Omaha, Nebraska, are being held in lieu of a $50,000 bond each in the Iowa County jail in Dodgeville, Wisconsin.

Beal is still facing charges in Nebraska where he was arrested in 2009 after authorities found 150 pounds of marijuana in the van he was riding in. In 2008, he was arrested in Illinois for possession of a small amount of marijuana and $150,000 in cash. He pleaded guilty to the Illinois marijuana charge and paid a fine, but the $150,000 in cash that was seized was not returned.

Beal last year told The Villager that the pot in the Nebraska arrest was acquired in California, and that he was planning to deliver it to medical marijuana buyers’ clubs in Michigan and New York City.

Polls 10-11 years after the first Global Marijuana March in May 1999:
-------------------------------

October 28, 2010.
New High of 46% of Americans Support Legalizing Marijuana. Gallup poll.
July 26, 2010.
Rasmussen poll. 43% Say Marijuana Should Be Legalized, and 42% Disagree. "While half of Democrats (51%) support legalizing marijuana, 62% of Republicans are opposed. Voters not affiliated with either major political party lean toward legalization by a 48% to 35% margin."
December 2009. All U.S. voters:
A December 2009 poll by Angus Reid Public Opinion finds that 53% of Americans support legalizing marijuana, 43% oppose, and 4% are not sure. See: Most Americans Support Legalizing Marijuana. Poll question was "Do you support or oppose the legalization of each of the following drugs?" Methodology: "Online interviews with 1,004 American voters, conducted on Dec. 3 and Dec. 4, 2009. Margin of error is 3.1 per cent."
April 2009. All U.S. adults:
"It’s not just a California poll. A WashingtonPost/ABC survey, also released last week, revealed that 46 percent of Americans support legalization of small amounts of marijuana for personal use — that’s double the support it had a decade ago." - May 6, 2009. Christian Science Monitor. Article titled "Legalize marijuana? Schwarzenegger says let’s debate it." Actual poll: "Washington Post-ABC News Poll". Poll conducted April 21-24, 2009 of a random national sample of adults. The Washington Post. ABC News.
In general, do you favor or oppose legalizing the possession of small amounts of marijuana for personal use?
Date Favor Oppose No opinion
4/24/09 46 52 2
10/24/02* 39 53 8

5/13/85 26 72 2
*Time/CNN: "Do you favor or oppose the legalization of marijuana? (IF YES) What about in small amounts, for example three ounces or less? Do you favor or oppose the legalization of marijuana in small amounts?" April 2009. 2008 U.S. presidential election voters*:
"The Zogby poll, commissioned by the conservative-leaning O'Leary Report, surveyed 3,937 voters and found 52 percent in favor of legalization. Only 37 percent opposed." - May 6, 2009. "Majority Of Americans Want Pot Legalized: Zogby Poll". The Huffington Post. See also: "New Poll: 52% Say Marijuana Should Be Legal, Taxed, Regulated." May 06, 2009. Salem-News.com. "Is marijuana tax the next revenue stream?", by Michael B. Farrell. May 11, 2009. Chicago Sun-Times.
*3,937 voters weighted to match the 2008 presidential outcome -- 54 percent Obama voters and 46 percent McCain supporters. Voters were asked: "Scarce law enforcement and prison resources, a desire to neutralize drug cartels and the need for new sources of revenue have resurrected the topic of legalizing marijuana. Proponents say it makes sense to tax and regulate the drug while opponents say that legalization would lead marijuana users to use other illegal drugs. Would you favor or oppose the government's effort to legalize marijuana?"

The chart below is in the public domain. Click here for more info. With less than 5% of world population the USA has over 2.4 million of 9.8 million world prisoners. This table is from a December 2009 U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics report called Prisoners in 2008 (NCJ 228417). Table is from page 8 of the PDF file. (Sources: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.). The majority of U.S. inmates are in due to the drug war. The number of inmates in the USA has increased almost 5 times over since 1980. [1]. According to a New York Times article, mandatory minimum sentences are the cause of the huge U.S. inmate population, and the U.S. incarceration rate that dwarfs all other nations. The article reports that there is no benefit in reduced crime rates compared to other nations (such as Canada) with much lower incarceration rates. They also have much lower murder rates.
