Marijuana activists count arrests

DENVER — Colorado’s marijuana debate includes a back-and-forth over pot possession and the impact on the criminal justice system, and activists are counting up the arrests.

The activists are releasing a report Thursday saying that despite claims to the contrary, pot possession in small amounts still lands people in the criminal justice system, costing taxpayers a lot of money.

Marijuana possession in Colorado is a petty offense, but people charged with pot possession still have to appear in criminal court.

Opponents of marijuana legalization plan an event Thursday with mothers who oppose the measure.
