Cannabis Americas Common Sense Crops

by
Jim Hightower

…but it’s important that we don’t stop at just decriminalizing marijuana. The “War on Drugs” budget should be converted to, among other things, a war on “drug profits” and a war on the “Prison Industrial Complex”. But the wholesale warehousing of huge segments of the population will continue to occur if there is not a movement toward systemic changes in the economy. People with reasonable access to meaningful work at a living wage are much more likely to make choices that move their lives and their families toward better futures, rather than the joint and antisocial dysfunctional behavior patterns. Full employment should be the goal of all policy decisions involving drugs, money, education, health care et. al. ad nauseum.
