Prohibition in the 1920s was a doomed policy that led to crime and corruption and violence.

Yet in America today, what’s our policy when it comes to marijuana? Prohibition. And the results of that policy? Crime. Corruption. Violence.

More than 76 million Americans have smoked marijuana sometime in their lives. Maybe you’re one of them. If you are, the law says you’re a criminal.

In the US, we still arrest people just for smoking marijuana. Even in the privacy of their own homes.

The billions of taxpayer dollars wasted each year arresting and prosecuting more than 700,000 people on mostly minor marijuana offenses could be spent arresting and jailing violent criminals.

Tens of thousands arrested for smoking pot go to jail.

Many lose their jobs. That’s just unfair.

Marijuana for medical use is prohibited under federal law and in 41 states. That’s unconscionable.

But there’s good news. Across America, there are places where prohibition is being rejected and replaced with sensible, compassionate legislation. Ten states no longer arrest people just for smoking marijuana. In nine states, doctors are allowed to recommend medical marijuana for patients in need.

It’s time to change state and federal laws that make criminals out of law-abiding citizens.
