This election may be the most critical one yet in our fight to end marijuana prohibition.
“The only productive outcome would be for the administration or for Congress to move expeditiously to deschedule cannabis … providing states the power to establish their own marijuana policies free from federal intrusion.”
Seventy-eight percent of Democrats, as well as 70 percent of Independents and 54 percent of Republicans, say that no one should be incarcerated for possessing cannabis.
We must double down on our efforts encouraging Congressional leadership to finally repeal the federal prohibition of marijuana once and for all!
“A robust, above-ground retail marijuana market is necessary in order to disrupt the unregulated marketplace and to assure that consumers have adequate access to lab-tested, high quality products at competitive prices.”
The report estimates, “States with roughly 20 to 40 legal regulated stores per 100,000 residents, in general, have captured 80 percent to 90 percent of all cannabis sales in the legal market.”
Those who wish to perpetuate the failed public policy of cannabis criminalization have lost the hearts and minds of the American public. And they know it.
“Marijuana sales are already taking place in every town in Rhode Island. The question before voters this November is whether they want these transactions to take place in a safe, above-ground environment or if they want to keep these markets unregulated and underground.”
