Amid the seemingly constant bad news about rising international tensions and the crushing police/#surveillancestate at home, one bright spot remains. #Cannabis #decriminalization keeps on sweeping the U.S. – as, according to polls, almost no one believes cannabis should be #illegal.
It is well known that the #warondrugs serves no purpose but to enrich and empower the #police state and the corporatocracy. On the other hand, cannabis #legalization has provided tremendous #benefits to the people.
#Medical cannabis is proving to successfully treat an ever-growing number of physical and mental ailments, without the harmful side-effects of pharmaceutical products. While it is not a panacea, medical cannabis is giving life to #children where before they were expected to die, allowing children to finally stop having debilitating #seizures, and allowing war #veterans to find treatment for #PTSD where none other exists, to name just a few.
More and more of those in #government are getting it, and they’re not afraid to speak out or even act in the noblest of manners, such as Georgia Rep. #AllenPeake who skirts the law to distribute Colorado medical cannabis to suffering children in his state.
Add #Ohio Supreme Court Justice #WilliamONeill to the list. In a recent speech, the enlightened judge said cannabis should be legalized and all non-violent cannabis offenders should be #released from #jail. “The time has come for new thinking,” O’Neill said. “We regulate and tax #alcohol and #tobacco and imprison people for smoking grass.” O’Neill says legalization and prisoner release would generate $350 million that would be used to treat drug #addiction instead of criminalizing it, as well as create a #mentalhealth network to combat addiction. “Treat addiction like the #disease it is in the name of compassion,” he said.
O’Neill is pondering a run for Ohio #governor, but won’t make a decision until the end of the year. Even if he doesn’t run, his remarks inject some much-needed substance into the race, and should spur the candidates to put their positions on the record.👇#EndTheDrugWar #Decriminalization #Prison
