ABOUT

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.

We are located in New York City and  work in conjunction with Community Studies of New York, 155 West 72nd Street, Suite 402, New York, NY 10023.  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 are created for and distributed by the Drug Policy Alliance, the New York Civil Liberties Union, the ACLU, the NAACP, and other groups concerned with civil liberties and social justice.

Loren Siegel is an attorney and an 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 drug issues. 

MARIJUANA-ARRESTS.COM was put on line in September 2011. It is a work in progress.
