Q. Is the funding for JPD's drug program dependant on how much money they claim they took off the street? $1204 for an ounce of marijuana, according to the story in the Empire, is ridiculous at best.


Dear Juneau Resident,

JPD doesn't get more money depending on seized drug values. Here is the math on marijuana- 18,204.46g / $773,585 = $43/gram; 4169.52 oz. / $773,585 = $185/oz. Often a street gram is short, users don't tend to complain too much, so when JPD weighs what was purchased it tends to be less than advertised. We have to adjust somewhat for the shortage.
