Legalize Marijuana Now
It's time Minnesota legislature safely and responsibly legalize marijuana.
By legalizing marijuana responsibly and safely, we would address criminal justice inequities created by our current system. Those states that legalize marijuana see a significant decline in arrests based on race in low-income neighborhoods. Employers should be prohibited from administering marijuana employment tests and previous marijuana convictions should be erased.
Boost In Our Economy
By 2025, the marijuana industry could generate more than $24 billion in revenue in the United States. For every dollar spent on marijuana, up to $2.13 to $2.40 is generated in economic activity in Minnesota. We should not underestimate the economic impact of legalizing marijuana in Minnesota and miss out on creating thousands of new jobs.
