Marijuana needs to be decriminalized. Just as in the days of the prohibition against alcohol, marijuana is used as a tool to perpetuate a broken justice system that was forged in the crucible of slavery and racism in the name of "the war on drugs." Research shows the many healing properties of both THC and CBD. Outside of the benefits, for the sake of the argument, let's say that THC was addictive and that's the reason for its criminalization. Well, so is alcohol and many prescription drugs. There is no intelligent argument against this, only that of the fearmongering, money-hungry, and racist ideologies that still plague this country concerning the current justice system.
