Hello,

Thank you for your response. I am looking for any statistics you may have -- such as the total number of arrests broken down by year -- for offenses related to marijuana.

Thank you,

Evan

To Whom It May Concern:

I wanted to follow up on the following Freedom of Information request, copied below, and originally submitted on Feb. 20, 2015. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response, or if further clarification is needed.

Thank you for your help.

From:

Will a total for all of the years do? We have the combined period total
but someone is still working on breaking it down by each years. If the
total will suffice we can send that.
