Ending the War on Drugs
The War Failed
The War on Drugs failed, is racist, and need to be put to an end. African American and Latino families have been torn apart by a policy that relentlessly targeted communities of color. It is time for us to put an end to the War on drugs.
We are also seeking to legalize marijuana and expungement of the records of those previously convicted on marijuana related felonies. We see models like those we are seeing in Washington, Massachusetts, Colorado, and California as a method to rollout a nationwide legalization effort.
Then we will advocate to end the war on drugs by decriminalizing drugs and release all nonviolent drug offenders. We will transfer the drug issue out of the hands of the criminal justice system and into the hands of medical professionals.
This will also devastate the South American cartels by ending their ability to profit off of our crime networks. Furthermore, it would reduce the power of the cartels over their home countries, thus reducing the flow of refugees.
