On average, an individual will be arrested every 48 sec
Rescheduling marijuana within the Controlled Substances Act is bad politics and bad policy.
Rescheduling is like going from treating marijuana like heroin and treating it like cocaine.
Say it with us: DESCHEDULE.
That is how we end cannabis criminalization.
Virginia's decriminalization law is officially in effect! Starting today, possession of one ounce of cannabis or less is punishable by up to a $25 fine — the lowest fine of any decriminalization state.
Something's wrong when the debate is between one party’s bill that bans no-knock drug raids and another party’s bill that doesn’t while no one has a bill to ACTUALLY END THE WAR ON DRUGS.
Ending cops' ability to harass people over drugs should be a key part of police reform.
BOOM: Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards just signed a bill that will let patients get medical marijuana for *any* debilitating condition their doctors see fit.
He also signed legislation on cannabis business banking and legal protections for doctors.
It’s official: Marijuana possession is decriminalized in Virginia.
✅ As of today, getting caught with up to an ounce of cannabis comes with a $25 fine, no threat of jail time and no criminal record.
