One of the greatest problems in the United States are illegal drugs. The most available, used and distributed drug is marijuana. Each year approximately 800.000 Americans are arrested for violating marijuana laws.
The biggest number of arrests based on possession of at least a pot of marijuana is made in Texas. Even if it is your first conviction, you can get 180 days jail time and a $2000 fine. The state law in Oklahoma allows judges to sentence to life imprisonment people convicted of cultivation of cannabis or for the sale of the smallest amount of it. Annually over 13.000 people get arrested for pot possession in Oklahoma and they are convicted severely.
