Re-Legalize Marijuana and end the Failed War on Drugs
The world is catching up with the Libertarian Party, which since the 1970’s has supported re-legalizing marijuana and ending the failed war on drugs. Eight states and the District of Columbia have already re-legalized marijuana.
To restore freedom and reduce costs:
Restore the right of people, who are causing no harm to others, to use marijuana without fear that their life, liberty, and property will be threatened by the state.
Curtail the abuses of our civil liberties (pretextual traffic stops, warrantless no-knock raids by SWAT teams, civil asset forfeiture, and coercive plea bargains) associated with the failed war on drugs.
Use the savings from state police, prosecutors, courts, and prisons to reduce the state sales tax burden.
- Use savings at the county and local level to reduce the county and local portions of property taxes.
