ProJo Editorial — Legalize Marijuana

Providence Journal I have a piece in today’s Providence Journal — “Drug war has failed; legalize marijuana” — in which I take the ProJo editorial board to task for their recent opposition to the legalization of marijuana.

My advocacy concerning the war on drugs and the reform of marijuana laws is known to regular Dose readers — but I’m pretty sure I’m preaching to the converted here — so I am glad for this opportunity to be making my arguments to a much wider audience, and one that may still need some convincing on the issue.

However, I would not have chosen the image they used online — a stock photo of a dirty jobless hippie-type. I would have preferred a photo of prison overcrowding.
