The Top Pot Stories Of 2011 (SLIDESHOW)

[ via Huffington Post ] 30 Dec

It's been a tumultuous year for marijuana drug policy, from the federal government's crackdown on medical marijuana in California and the hundreds of shops forced to close, to the riots and lawsuits sparked by the federal action.

But even with or without legal changes, Americans haven't stopped using pot. The FBI's annual Uniform Crime Report revealed marijuana-related arrests were up last year. In 2010, police made 853,838 arrests for pot-related crimes -- more than half of drug arrests nationwide, and among the highest numbers of marijuana-related arrests ever reported by the bureau.

HuffPost has compiled a slideshow of the year's advances and setbacks in medical marijuana policy.
