Our 8-part plan calls for a new way of thinking, along with the following actions:
End the prohibition on cannabis and hemp
Tax and regulate cannabis, just like alcohol and tobacco
Encourage hemp farming and its use in a multitude of products
Release marijuana possession prisoners from prison
Create Back-to-Work Empowerment programs that offer former cannabis prisoners employment in the cannabis and hemp industries and extend these programs to others in need of meaningful opportunity.
Use some of the taxes raised from legalized cannabis to fund education programs that retrain Police Officers to become Peace Officers, and facilitate an end to racism, ethnic profiling, random pat-downs, and extreme violence on American citizens.
Appropriate funds from the cannabis tax to rehabilitate some of the 18 million vacant homes in America and make them available to the homeless and low income families and individuals (there are 3.5 million homeless people in America)
End the war on drugs and use resources for compassionate care and rehabilitation. Prison shouldn’t be for people with addictions.
Dear Mr. President,
In light of recent events, you have an opportunity, dare I say an obligation, to fundamentally change America in a profound manner. You can enact an Executive Order that can solve some of this country’s biggest problems, and right some of our most egregious wrongs.
