People that live in Canada are certainly welcome to sound off on what's going on within the USA. Fortunately Americans like me who have spent their whole life here and 20 years fighting the racist criminal justice system will keep carrying on fighting the police state.
I'm proud of the leading the Massachusetts effort to decriminalize cannabis for about 8 years. Working with MPP we finally convinced George Soros to give us $400,000 for a referendum in 2008 and won, 65% to 35%, becoming the first US state to completely decriminalize cannabis possession.
Starting immediately in 2009, we stopped 10,000 criminal arrests per year, and every year since then. 80% of those people were black or latino, and as a white man I'm more proud of helping those people than anything else I've done in my whole life. It's a disgrace that clean-cut white people like me are immune from marijuana arrest white they drag off dark-skinned people to jail.
