DAs Marijuana Prosecutions (Queens District Attorney's Office)

Emma Whitford filed this request with the Queens District Attorney's Office of the United States of America.
Multi Request DAs Marijuana Prosecutions
Awaiting Acknowledgement


From: Emma Whitford

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

All prosecutions between January 1, 2017 and the present for possession of marijuana under 221.05, 221.10, 221.15, 221.20, 221.25 and 221.30. I would like to see these arrests broken down by month, precinct, gender and race. I do not need defendant names.

Additionally, I would like the number of declined prosecutions for each of these charges, for this same time window, also broken down by month, precinct, gender and race. No names needed.

It would be preferable if all documents could be provided in some machine-readable form (like an excel or csv file).

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 there are fees, 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 20 business days, as the statute requires.
