Blurb says….  America’s policy of marijuana prohibition has destroyed millions of lives, devastated countless communities, and animated many of the injustices we’re grappling with today.

Our new study, Criminal Injustice: Cannabis & The Rise of the Carceral State, dives into the sordid history behind America’s marijuana laws, and details the staggering human and economic cost of this unjust and ineffective crusade. 

The Policing of Marijuana Prohibition—the first piece of the series—illustrates the ways cannabis policy has transformed police work; the “front door” of our criminal justice system.
