Tens of thousands affected every year

The prosecution of cannabis violations

The two graphs (click to enlarge) represent the number of hemp defendants prosecuted for consumption or preparatory acts for personal consumption. Each person is counted only once, even if he or she was reported several times. The left graph shows the different categories of convictions, the right graph shows the age distribution of those convicted.

The prosecution of cannabis-misdemeanors

These graphs show those who have passed on or sold something: again, several thousand defendants. The left chart shows the two categories of convictions (light misdemeanors and heavy misdemeanors or felonies), the right chart the age distribution of those convicted.
