Today, I am releasing a 3-step Marijuana Reform Plan. First, allow medical marijuana to be prescribed to sick patients that need cannabis. Second, decriminalize in 2015 possession of small amounts of marijuana. Third, regulate and tax marijuana in 2017 if decriminalization goes well. Here is the link:
It is time to stop denying people who need cannabis for medicine. It is time to stop ruining people's lives over a joint. It is also a fact that African Americans are arrested for possession 5 times more frequently than whites, though usage is almost identical.
It is also time to stop spending $325 million per year of taxpayer money to arrest, prosecute, and jail about 25,000 Pennsylvanians for possession of small amounts of marijuana.
