I heard it was used a significant amount during alcohol prohibition. I'd like to see people do the same for non-violent drug charges.
Do those tend to be tried by jury a lot? Honest question.
no, but non-violent drug offenders might be wise to take it to a jury more often. Jury Nullification is actually fairly widely known, if not universally, and support for drug prohibition is less than half the population in many parts of the country.
