Obama to Call for Breaking Cycle of Incarceration

Category: News | Posted on Mon, November, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder

WASHINGTON (AP) -- More than half a million people leave U.S. prisons each year, but with jobs, housing and mental health services scarce, many are soon back behind bars. On Monday, President Barack Obama will call for breaking that cycle of incarceration by helping former inmates successfully re-enter society.

With his visit to a drug treatment center in Newark, New Jersey, Obama aims to boost his ongoing push for overhauling the criminal justice system. In rare bipartisan fashion, Congress is considering legislation cutting sentences for nonviolent drug offenders, but Obama will seek to force attention to the plight offenders face once they're finally set free.

"Everyone has a role to play, from businesses that are hiring ex-offenders to philanthropies that are supporting education and training programs," Obama said in his weekly address.

A Very Big California Marijuana Legalization Announcement Is Coming Tomorrow

California is the biggest marijuana legalization domino that is in play for 2016. I have had many conversations with members of the mainstream media about California, and I have said many times that many people will measure the success of the 2016 campaign by whether or not California succeeds. Several states could legalize in 2016, and while I think that even one state would be a huge victory, many others will consider it bittersweet if California fails to legalize again.

As seems to always be the case with legalization efforts in this decade, there are several efforts in California. The most high profile one to date is Reform California, which has funding and a very strong campaign team. However, there’s supposed to be a long awaited announcement coming out of California tomorrow, with California billionaire Sean Parker and friends throwing their hat into the race. The initiative is reported to be backed by the Drug Policy Alliance, the Marijuana Policy Project, and WeedMaps founder Justin Hartfield who has already pledged 2 million dollars to a marijuana legalization campaign of his choosing (which it sounds like he is choosing this one).

Having a lot of money is important in politics, and this initiative will certainly have a bunch, but it’s not the only thing that it will take to push this initiative over the top. It will take a very well written initiative, and a strong campaign team to ensure victory. It sounds like the initiative that is going to be announced tomorrow will have those in addition to a hefty bank account. Anything that the Drug Policy Alliance is involved with is usually very solid. The San Francisco Chronicle received an advanced summary of the initiative, highlights of which are below:
