Adults in the Mile High City may be getting high as often as ever, but they're less likely to be arrested for possessing pot these days.
Prosecutions for marijuana possession fell 21 percent in Denver last year, the first full year after voters approved a measure calling on police to put a low priority on pot arrests.
In 2007, there were 2,105 arrests of adults for possessing less than an ounce of marijuana in Denver, according to statistics from the city attorney's office. In 2008, arrests fell to 1,658, the lowest since 2005.
Fifty-seven percent of Denver voters approved Question 100, creating an ordinance designating adult marijuana possession as the city's "lowest law enforcement priority."
