For the first time since 1937, lawmakers have introduced a bill into the House of Representatives to end federal marijuana prohibition. Over the past 70+ years, the federal criminalization of marijuana has:
1) Failed to reduce the public’s demand for or access to cannabis.
2) Imposed enormous fiscal and human costs upon the American people.
3) Promoted disrespect for the law.
4) Reinforced ethnic and generational divides between the public and law enforcement.
we waste billions to fight an unendable battle, while our nation struggles with debt and imprison workers in good health, for possesing or cultivating a plant. with gangs and criminals, being the only ones to profit. while your tax dollars are wasted making cartels rich and providing lucrative incomes for buying weapons and seizing whole areas of countries. end the prohibition of marijuana in america for the peoples sake.
