Regrann from @beardbros_pharms - A #politician with an intelligent, common sense approach to ending cannabis #prohibition ...?
(CNN) The year Donald Trump was elected President, more #Americans were arrested for marijuana possession than for all violent crimes combined. Moreover, the #ACLU found that even though African-Americans use marijuana at similar rates to white Americans, they are almost four times more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession.
I have seen this firsthand in my state and in my district. According to the Sentencing Project, Ohio has the 15th highest incarceration rate in the United States. This translates to over 70,000 Ohioans behind bars. And, nationally, about one in four prisoners are behind bars for low-level drug offenses. When they finally leave prison -- after years removed from employment, education and family -- their chances of having a productive life are slim.
As co-chair of the House Addiction, Treatment, and Recovery Caucus, I've been hesitant to support #legalizing marijuana in the past. But after meeting with countless #Ohio families and youth whose lives have been irreparably harmed by a marijuana #arrest , I find the social and economic injustices of our marijuana policy too big to ignore. I firmly believe no person should be sentenced to a lifetime of hardship because of a marijuana arrest. It is morally wrong and economically nonsensical. That is why I am calling for an end to marijuana being used as an excuse to lock up our fellow Americans.
