The Democrat said in the ad that he wants to 'destigmatize the use of marijuana,' a pathway to legalization and 'forgive those arrested due to outdated ideology.'

"Black people are four times more likely to be arrested for marijuana laws than white people," Chambers said."States waste $3.7 billion enforcing marijuana laws every year. Most of the people police are arresting aren't dealers, but rather people with small amounts of pot, just like me."

Senate begins debate on voting rights legislationThe Senate began debate on voting rights legislation for the first time this Congress, but it is almost certainly doomed to fail. Why is this even a debate. All American citizens should have the right to vote. It should be made EQUAL for all. One of the best systems is Colorado. If only the rest of the states would adopt it for their citizens. No more long lines

Abortion clinics challenging Texas Senate Bill 8 restrictions dealt new setback by 5th CircuitA federal appeals court dealt opponents of Texas’ strict abortion law another defeat Monday by steering the case next to the state’s Republican-majority... Abort Greg Abbott never count on the 5th circuit to do anything good or worthwhile and you won't be disappointed Medical science says there is no real fetal heartbeat at 6-weeks gestation because there are no heart valves. The real question about abortion is “ensoulment” & science has never found, nor does the U.S. Constitution affirm, the existence of the soul, tied to a heartbeat or not.

Apple and Google oppose Senate antitrust efforts, claiming they'd hurt consumer security | EngadgetWith the Senate Judiciary Committee scheduled to discuss the American Innovation and Choice Online Act and the Open App Markets Act this week, Apple and Google are stepping up their opposition to both bills.. this is no longer a concern as hypercapsoc requires these mergers as we exodus the workforce en masse. this will be authorized by consensus. So they refuse any sort of third-party options on their software, but don’t want sideloading because their security is better? IMO they shouldn’t be able to have it both ways.

YouTube "Black people are four times more likely to be arrested for marijuana laws than white people," Chambers said."States waste $3.7 billion enforcing marijuana laws every year. Most of the people police are arresting aren't dealers, but rather people with small amounts of pot, just like me." Eighteen states and Washington, D.C. have legalized small amounts of marijuana for recreational use, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures . Twenty-seven states have decriminalized possessing small amounts of marijuana.  Louisiana enacted a law in 2021 that decriminalizes possession of up to 14 grams of marijuana. Those who are caught will face a fine of up to $100 but no jail time. In August, New Orleans  pardoned about 10,000 people with convictions or pending penalties for small amounts of marijuana possession.  "We must move toward criminal justice reform regarding marijuana arrests by pushing away the stigma and being real," Chambers said in a statement to CBS News."Some parts of the country are fighting opioid addictions and creating millionaires and better schools from the marijuana industry. Others are creating felonies and destroyed families. I can't stand for that." According to the ACLU , national arrest rates for marijuana possession were down from 2010 to 2018, but Black people were 3.6 times as likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than white people in 2018. States that legalized marijuana had lower rates of racial disparities in mairjuana possession arrests. A majority of Americans, 60%, have said that marijauana should be legal for recreational and medical use according to  an April 2021 Pew Research survey . Another 30% of respondents said it should be legal only for medical use, while 8% said it should not be legal for any reason. A University of New Orleans poll, also from April 2021, found Louisiana residents favor legalizing recreational use of marijuana 55%-36%.  Louisiana has a Democratic governor but leans heavily Republican. Former President Donald Trump won the state by about 28 points in 2020. Kennedy, the state's current GOP Senator, won by about 20 points during his 2016 race.
