Activists Demonstrate In Favor Of Easing Arrests For Small Quantity Marijuana Possession

Howard Josepher, the founder and President of Exponents, a community based organization in New York City that helps people with drug problems, speaks at a rally against marijuana arrests in front of One Police Plaza on June 13, 2012 in New York City. The New York City Council is set to vote on a resolution that would decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana in public view. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has urged the state's lawmakers to pass the law which many say leads to the arrests of a disproportion of minority youths.
