The Patrol says a total of 252 people were arrested for misdemeanor drug offenses and 90 for felony drug offenses. Authorities seized more than $25,000 in cash during the annual event.
DUI arrests were down compared to the rally in 2013, but the amount of money seized almost doubled from last year.
