A increasing amount of states have legalized or decriminalized the possession of small amounts of marijuana. In the year 2020 the drug remains illegal in other states and under federal law – and police officers in the United States still make more arrests for marijuana offenses than for any other drug, according to FBI data.
Police officers made about 663,000 arrests for marijuana-related offenses in the 50 states and the District of Columbia in 2018, amounting to 40% of the 1.65 million total drug arrests in the U.S. that year (the most recent for which data is available).
Billions of taxpayer dollars fund these arrests, which disproportionately target Black people. Every 0.01 hours someone in the United States is arrested for having marijuana; a Black person is 3.73 times more likely to be arrested than a white person. Even though Blacks and whites use marijuana at similar rates the racial disparities are obvious when you look at the analytics.
Such racial disparities in marijuana possession arrests exist in all regions of the country, in counties large and small, urban and rural, wealthy and poor, and with large and small Black populations. Indeed, in over 96% of counties with more than 30,000 people in which at least 2% of the residents are Black, Blacks are arrested at higher rates than whites for marijuana possession.”
Many of our seniors are victims of the daily regimen of prescribed medicines. Loaded with a list of harmful side-effects no person should be subjected too. The “side effects” of marijuana are insignificant in comparison to the side effects of many prescription drugs, and not a single person has ever died from a marijuana overdose.
Marijuana is SAFER than many commonly prescribed medications
An ongoing 30-year study found that a person weighing 140 pounds would have to consume over 4 pounds of marijuana in one sitting to reach toxic levels, and that still would not be a fatal dosage. The powerful anti-oxidant effects of marijuana can provide relief for many disorders including liver inflammation from Hepatitis C, lupus, irritable bowel syndrome, and many other serious medical conditions that all involve inflammation and oxidative damage.
