How many drug offenders are there in prison?


There are 265,800 drug offenders in state prison throughout the United States in 2006, representing about 20% of all state prisoners. This is according to a bulletin published by the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics in December 2009. This does not include the number of prisoners incarcerated in American federal prisons.

    please list the number of registered Republican, Democratic, Libertarian, and Independent voters in the U.S.
    please list the number of Whites, Blacks, and other races on welfare in the U.S.-I’ll bet there are more Whites than Blacks
