Canna Law Blog

Indiana MarijuanaNot sure how Pence can claim to be acting in his constituents’ interest when the majority of Americans now support cannabis legalization, when recreational cannabis states like Colorado and Washington are able to use cannabis tax dollars to help fund schools and to aid the homeless, and when evidence supporting the benefits of using cannabis for medicine continue to mount. When Governor Pence talks about the “interest of our people,” one has to wonder whether he is really talking about just his small coterie who directly benefit from his remaining in power.

Causing us to again ask: who really benefits from cannabis prohibition? The profits made by pharmaceutical companies (Go here for a long and impressive list of those based in Indiana) should immediately come to mind, as does the racist “War on Drugs” in a state not all that long ago dominated by the Klan.

And as for “the youth,” a rather exhaustive study has shown that legalization does not increase cannabis use by young people. And that only makes sense. If you want to reduce usage of something by those under 21 you legalize and regulate it.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Governor Pence.
