Support the Marijuana Justice Act

I urge you to support the Marijuana Justice Act that will legalize marijuana at the federal level and remedy many of the failures of the War on Drugs.

Why is this important?

For decades, the failed War on Drugs has locked up millions of nonviolent drug offenders—especially for marijuana-related offenses—at an incredible cost of lost human potential, torn apart families and communities, and taxpayer dollars. The effects of the drug war have had a disproportionately devastating impact on Americans of color and the poor.

The Marijuana Justice Act is a bill ,that if passed, will legalize marijuana at the federal level and go even further in an effort to remedy many of the failures of the War on Drugs. This is the right thing to do for public safety, and will help reduce our overflowing prison population.

Reasons for signing

  • How government officials can "adamantly support" marijuana remaining illegal, and then complain about the amount of opiod overdoses and addiction baffles me.
  • Literally less damaging than alcohol, and there are so many people that could be helped by it.
  • its high time something was done to remedy the domestic terrorism that was the War on Drugs
