This infographic illustrates how people, especially minorities, are being put in prison at incredibly high rates for simple marijuana possession.

It also shows how that money could be better used, rather than spending government time, money, and resources putting people behind bars for cannabis possession.

The next time a teacher is laid off, a library closes, or a bad road damages your car, think about how the money spent enforcing current cannabis laws could be used on those things instead.

    I notice how almost no one talks about the
    decriminalization of the cultivation cannabis… After all where does the
    cannabis come from that they posses? I think we should abandon all legalization
    and decriminalization efforts and end prohibition completely by treating the
    plant no different than corn and wheat by repealing all cannabis laws both
    state and federal with a constitutional amendment prohibiting the plant in any
    way besides sales but even then there should be reasonable fines for violating
    the regulation of sales at the state level. I didn’t include anything about
    minors because the plant does not cause any harm to kids and parents should be
    able to self-medicate their children just like when they give them vitamin C or
    E. The brain damage nonsense has been not only debunked but reverse with the
    recent articles about how the teen with a tumor was helped from cannabis
    because of the plant’s neurogenesis properties.

    Why not use some of the money saved to fund NASA? We can’t keep hitching rides on Russia’s Soyuz capsules to and from the International Space Station forever. We need a homegrown replacement for the now-retired space shuttle to get our astronauts into space.

    Oh I meant that we need “a constitutional amendment prohibiting the states or federal government itself from prohibiting the plant in way besides sales
