The so-called “War on Drugs” is a racist system that disproportionately targets people of color. Not only should non-violent crimes receive NO jail time (in lieu of some form of community service or rehabilitation), but legalize recreational use of marijuana at the federal level. There’s a huge surplus of tax money from legal weed in states like Colorado that is untapped in the rest of the country. Tobacco cigarettes with added nicotine are far more health hazardous but big tobacco companies are allowed to run free because of the contributions they make to politicians. Put the social programs that can be funded by taxed, legal marijuana as a priority and we could do some excellent good for this country.
