America’s drug war has been a part of our lives for more than 100 years. In Episode 1 of #Sphere @CatoInstitute 's @TCBurrus , @Heritage 's Paul J. Larkin Jr., and @BrookingsInst 's @jon_rauch discuss whether drug prohibition should be ended nationwide.
Virginia is on the brink of becoming the fourth state to ban hair discrimination, with only the signature of the governor remaining for the prohibition to become law.
Now is the time to remove the ridiculous federal prohibition on marijuana. I'm proud to co-sponsor the Marijuana Justice Act.
In my view, it is long past time that we in the United States end the federal prohibition on marijuana. Now is the time to decriminalize marijuana and expunge criminal records associated with the drug.
It is Congress, not the president, which has the constitutional responsibility for making war. The international community must uphold the prohibition against the use of chemical weapons, but it is unclear how Trump's illegal and unauthorized strikes on Syria achieve that goal.
