Marijuana Should Be Legalized and Regulated

Paul Armentano is the deputy director of NORML and authored this piece that has been published in US News & World Report

Excerpt from Mr Armentano’s article in US News & World Report: It’s time for politicians to call for a truce in the so-called war on drugs. According to a 2010 investigation by the Associated Press, lawmakers have spent over $1 trillion dollars enforcing the drug war. Their actions have resulted in a quadrupling of the U.S. prison population since 1980, but little else. In fact, according to America’s present drug czar, Gil Kerlikowske, “in the grand scheme, [the drug war] has not been successful.”
