A 22-year-old Madison man who allegedly sold marijuana in the area of Central Avenue and Main Street is facing charges of distributing the drug in the proximity of a school zone and public housing, police said.

Bruce Wright was arrested Tuesday at about 12:30 p.m. by Patrolman Paul Papamarkos and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia and distribution of marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school zone and within 500 feet of a public housing complex, authorities said.

The War on Drugs failed $1 Trillion ago! This money could have been used for outreach programs to clean up the bad end of drug abuse by providing free HIV testing, free rehab, and clean needles. Harmless drugs like marijuana could be legalized to help boost our damaged economy. Cannabis can provide hemp for countless natural recourses and the tax revenue from sales alone would pull every state in our country out of the red! Vote Teapot, PASS IT, and legalize it.

Sounds like Madison does need a police officer pounding a beat in the downtown area. Just make sure they get one of these - http://www.camelbak.com/
