Should the U.S. decriminalize marijuana?
Marijuana prohibition is unique among American criminal laws. No other law is both enforced so widely and harshly and yet deemed unnecessary by such a substantial portion of the populace. Hundreds of thousands of Americans a year are arrested for marijuana. Doors are kicked in. Children are put into foster care. Cars, houses and bank accounts are seized without trial. Yet it's hard to find a presidential candidate or Supreme Court justice who hasn't smoked marijuana. Reform will happen.
