The ACLU is calling for an end to the war on marijuana. This has seemed like such a no-brainer to me for such a long time that I can hardly think what to say about it. It's like trying to convince someone that the sky is blue. It is just so obvious that marijuana is a benign drug (at least by comparison to tobacco and alcohol), that prohibition doesn't work and never has, and that the war on drugs is a thinly veiled excuse for oppressing racial minorities and protecting moneyed interests (specifically the prison-industrial complex).
Oh, and in case there was any doubt, the sky is blue.
