HomeLegalizing Marijuana

The federal prohibition of marijuana has been unnecessarily cruel—wasting billions of dollars, unjustly harming millions of lives, and furthering racist policies. Alcoholic beverages cause more harm to the individual’s body and overall to the society than marijuana does, yet, lawmakers see no hypocrisy in legalizing alcoholics and criminalizing marijuana.

I see no justification, whatsoever, for criminalizing the use of marijuana when the foundational premise of altering the state of the mind, by itself, is legally and socially accepted. Therefore, I firmly support legalizing the use of marijuana on the federal level, and expunge all the records that are related to its prohibition.
