We are Almost There Lets End The Marijuana War

Yes, with United States Attorney General Eric Holder’s announcement that the federal government generally won’t interfere with states’ cannabis policy, the American people, the economy, and the planet won another battle in the inevitable march to the victory known as the Drug Peace. America’s longest and most expensive war, the Drug War, following voter legalization of cannabis in Colorado and Washington in 2012, is nearly over.
This is not just my opinion. The world over, reaction to Holder’s caveat-laden promise is being interpreted as the first major signal from the federal government that the war on one of humanity’s longest utilized plants, one considerably safer than alcohol, is winding down. From the New York Times (whose editors ran a September 2 editorial in support of Holder’s policy statement) to Britain’s Guardian, which is closely covering U.S. drug policy developments and earlier reported that a majority of Brits want cannabis law reform in the UK, it’s hard to find opposition to the direction the last stages of the war are taking. This is terrific. We’re almost there.
But almost there is not there. If you’re an independent contractor, as I am with my words and images, you’ll know that the only thing that matters is what it says when you sign an agreement on the dotted line. Everything else is song and dance, is how I put it in Too High to Fail, which spells out a sustainable model for bringing cannabis, America’s number one crop, into the taxpaying economy.
What the federal Controlled Substances Act (CSA) says today is that the federal government considers cannabis to be a schedule one felony, more dangerous than cocaine and meth. Will the Attorney General’s words (and the accompanying lack of backlash) embolden the legislative branch to remove cannabis entirely from the CSA, as must happen, thus allowing states to regulate cannabis like alcohol, in turn bringing billions into the aboveground economy and crippling criminal organizations? Let us hope. Better still: let us call our congressperson and senators.
