Wayne Messam on Drugs

FL Mayor; Democratic Presidential Challenger

 


Let the states decide on legalizing marijuana

Messam on Legalizing Marijuana: Let the states decide.

TWO CANDIDATES HAVE SIMILAR VIEWS: Steve Bullock; John Delaney.

The federal government has generally taken a hands-off approach to enforcing federal marijuana laws in states that have authorized medical or recreational markets. But that informal policy could be reversed by any administration at any moment. That's why some candidates have endorsed allowing state-legal markets to operate without fear of punishment from the federal government.

Drug war has ruined thousands of lives

The drug war has proven to be a failure. In the process, it has ruined thousands of lives, especially in communities of color. We all want safe streets, but we must ensure that every street has the same opportunity to grow up without threat of being thrown into the school-to-prison pipeline.

I believe states that have decided to move forward with marijuana legalization should be allowed to do so and other states should feel free to join the ranks without threats from the federal government. As long as those states that choose to do so continue to enforce DUI laws, spread economic benefits throughout all communities, and expunge records for those arrested for selling marijuana, they would have my full support as President.
