From: Evan Anderson

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to Pennsylvania Right to Know Act, I hereby request the following records:

A copy of all data related to citations for marijuana possession on the state and local levels. I am specifically seeking any statistics related to the total number of arrests and/or citations for offenses related to marijuana as well as the ethnicity, age, sex, and other demographic information of the persons arrested and/or cited, if available. The time frame for which I am seeking records is from January 2011 through December 2014.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Evan Anderson

Hi there,

I have a question about the data provided in this request (copied below). Are these data collected from local police only, state police only, or both?
