The Progressive Review has opposed the war on drugs for over 40 years, so long that we were called the DC Gazette back then. We're glad to see the Washington Post editorial board is finally moving in the same direction.
Washington Post editorial - We favor decriminalizing possession of small amounts of pot, assessing
civil fines instead of locking people up. Also, for that reason and
others, the Justice Department should hold its fire on a lawsuit
challenging Colorado and Washington’s decision to behave more leniently.
And state officials involved in good-faith efforts to regulate
marijuana production and distribution according to state laws should be
explicitly excused from federal targeting.
