Stop Marijuana Arrests

    1. Sponsored by

      Drug Policy Alliance

In 16 years, America has gone from a president who said he smoked marijuana but "didn't inhale" to a president who "inhaled; that was the point." President Obama does not deserve to be put in jail for smoking marijuana; neither do the at least three other former Presidents who have smoked it. The point is, no one does, and the Obama administration should put a stop to the hundreds of thousands of marijuana arrests that happen each year in this country.

      An old and ineffective paradigm that feels embarrassing as a human and wasteful as a citizen.

      Having marijuana illegal goes against everything that america stands for. We are a free country with the right to a pursuit of happiness. I work twelve hours a day. If at the end of the day I want to go home and relax by smoking marijuana because it makes me happy with my life, I have that right. Not only that, but existing products that are legal, have contradictory traits to why they say marijuana is illegal. We say smoking cigarettes is bad for your health because with modern technology we can see the blackening in someones lungs who smoke. Take myself for example though, I have smoked marijuana for eighteen years of my life and had an MRI done. They said there is nothing wrong with the functioning of my brain. Yet one of the reasons they say marijuana is illegal is because it causes permanent brain damage. Clearly our medical studies today have proven that to be a lie. Further some states still charge people with a class one drug charge for marijuana. Part of a class one drug is that it has no medicinal value. Well now that is charging people with a lie when states in the U.S. including Washington DC have legalized it medicinally. Stop ruining peoples lives from lies and corruption for money. Legalize marijuana.
