Pass Marijuana Legalization with Community Reparations
Today, Black and white people are using marijuana at the same rate. Yet, Black and Brown people continue to be arrested, incarcerated, and convicted for marijuana at a far higher rate than white people. In some Maryland counties, Black people are arrested at double the national average. This must end.
Tell your Maryland Senators and Delegates to bring real racial justice to marijuana legalization. Vote YES on the Cannabis Legalization and Reparations for the War on Drugs Act (SB 692).
SB 692 has many important provisions and ensures that Black and Brown Marylanders have a role in deciding how the money from marijuana sales are used to better their communities.
Take action now.
