I will support this regardless of the letter in front of his name. For far too long people have been put in cages. We had too many children kidnapped from their homes and separated from their loved ones and placed in homes where they are more likely to be abused. We have had too many lives destroyed because of the illogical, ineffective and unconstitutional war on drugs.
Everyday more and more people get addicted or die, as a result of prescription opiates. My biological mother died from overdosing on opiate pain patches. Yet marijuana, a plant that grows naturally, is listed in the same category as heroin.

This is an absolute tragedy and completely unacceptable. I do not advocate or endorse any drugs I wish that no one ever tries any of them. However, I most certainly will advocate for someone to be able to injest, in the privacy of their own home, a plant that cannot kill you! I will advocate for that over any of those horrible, deadly and physically addictive substances.
Also if we took a quarter of the money we spend on the war on drugs (maybe less), and we shift it to counseling and rehab, we would have far more success than putting people in cages. It would also relieve a burden on the American tax payer.
