Marijuana Legalization

I am for legalization of marijuana in Massachusetts and full decriminalization at the federal level. I believe the “war on drugs” has been completely ineffective at preventing dependency. Instead, it has fostered drug-related violence and propped up organized crime, including run-of-the-mill gang violence. Because of this history I would like to see criminalization of recreational drug use replaced by greater access to safe injection sites, treatment options, and care tailored to individual needs.
