I have been involved with the movement to end the prohibition of marijuana since “Proposition 13” in California in the 1970’s. I’ve heard a lot of explanations or why we must end marijuana prohibition over all of their years. This is one of the best. We commend Superior Court Judge Gray for explaining the steps needed to end the problems he addressed. . . . . EDITOR

Superior Court Judge James P gives his view point on the legalization of marijuana(Hemp) and points out how it would affect so many lives in a positive way, stop the drug cartells, stop the use of children as drug runners, empty our jails help our health etc etc etc.
With all the problems we have today marijuana use is pretty far down the line of importance, so why is so much time energy and resources put into keeping it illegal? These resources should be going into poverty, hunger, education and catching actual criminals

Update 2017 Marijuana: The Latest Scientific Findings and Legalization
California, Massachusetts, Maine, and Nevada became the latest states to legalize recreational marijuana, bringing to 28 the number of states that have okayed the drug for medicinal use, recreational use, or both. Even more states have rules that allow certain kinds of cannabis extracts to be used for medical purposes. At the same time that state legalization is increasing, the Trump administration is signaling that it may ramp up enforcement of federal drug laws, even when they come into conflict with state laws allowing recreational marijuana use. State and local governments may find themselves on uncertain legal ground. Meanwhile, policymakers navigating this new landscape are also working largely without the benefit of a solid foundation of scientific evidence on the drug’s risks and benefits. In fact, a new National Academy of Medicine report describes notable gaps in scientific data on the short- and long-term health effects of marijuana. What do we know about the health impacts of marijuana, and what do we still need to learn? This Forum brought together researchers studying marijuana’s health impacts with policymakers who are working to implement new laws in ways that will benefit and protect public health.
