Happy 4/20 y’all! Today, we have one thing on our minds: cannabis justice.
Black Americans are 3.6x more likely to be arrested on marijuana charges than white Americans, a racist enforcement strategy that has overcrowded our prison system with non-violent offenders and fueled “tough on crime” propaganda.
While people’s lives are being destroyed by archaic prohibition laws and a racist prison industrial complex, companies are making money on cannabis in states where it’s legal.
We need equity and justice. It’s high-time we legalize it for all and expunge the records of those arrested for marijuana possession.
A bill to do just that passed the House, but Senate leadership has failed to act. That’s why we need to keep up the pressure on corporate politicians in both parties!
Our Revolution is organizing across the country and on Capitol Hill to legalize cannabis fix our criminal justice system. With a monthly donation of $4.20 you can join the fight and receive a limited-edition Cannabis Justice sticker TODAY. Chip in now → ([link removed])

Poll after poll shows that the vast majority of Americans support legalizing cannabis — regardless of party — but we’re still at a standstill due to a system of control and profit, rooted in racism.
Cannabis justice is a racial justice issue — full stop — and we’re not backing down from this fight. We must prioritize the lives of people of color, and legalizing cannabis is a step towards stopping the over-policing of marginalized groups and the unnecessary arrest of nonviolent offenders.
As you partake in your 4/20 celebrations today, don’t forget about the hundreds of thousands of Americans behind bars for the mere possession of a substance legal in states across our country, with the vast majority being people of color.
