ABOUT

MARIJUANA-ARRESTS.COM was put on line in September 2011. Right now, in 2017, more than ever it is a work in progress.

MARIJUANA-ARRESTS.COM has been created by the Marijuana Arrest Research Project. We study race, police policy, and the large  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 first-hand knowledge of people who have been arrested for marijuana possession and other minor offenses as well as current and former police officers, public defenders, judges, assistant district attorneys, and others who work daily in the criminal justice system.

We are located in New York City and  work in conjunction with Community Studies of New York. The Marijuana Arrest Research Project is supported in part by grants from foundations and individuals. We can be reached at marijuana.arrests @ gmail.com

Harry G. Levine and Loren Siegel direct the project. We work with Jon B. Gettman, Jesse P. Levine and others.  Our reports have been created for and distributed by the Drug Policy Alliance, the New York Civil Liberties Union, the ACLU, the NAACP, and other groups focusing on civil liberties, social justice, and the war on drugs.

Loren Siegel is an attorney and independent consultant specializing in media and communications for non-profits. She was for many years the director of public education for the American Civil Liberties Union.

Harry G. Levine is a professor of sociology at Queens College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York. He has won awards for his research and writing on the history and sociology of alcohol and drug issues, and sometime on the anthropology of Jewish people and the meanings they attach to Chinese and Deli food.
