SOUTHINGTON

Statewide, arrests and drugs seized by the Ohio State Highway Patrol are up significantly this year compared with 2011, said Lt. Brian Holt, commander of the Southington Post.

Troopers have seized 27,875 grams of heroin in the first six months of 2012 — a 327 percent increase over the same period in 2011, Holt said.

Troopers have seized more than double the amount of marijuana during the first six months of 2012 compared with that period in 2011.

Drug arrests of all types are up 30 percent.

We could assume that adults are just that and capable of making adult decisions and decriminalize if not legalize drug use.

Until 1915? I believe there were no drug laws except for a few local statutes aimed mostly at chinese immigrants until the Harrison Tax Act and strangely the country didn't explode and self destruct.

Imagine the money we'd save on police, prison guards, inmate services, etc etc
