Legalization is a moral issue. We have literally incarcerated millions of people for simply possessing pot. It takes generally nonviolent offenders and places the in an atmosphere so violent and dangerous one can scarcely imagine it. Federal drug laws are unconstitutional, and racist. The marijuana laws were written as a way to send Mexicans b ack across the border in the depression, rather than address the immigration issue. Kicking the can for 75 years and counting.
