Comments

In response to President Biden annoucing that he "will commute the sentences of 75 people serving time for nonviolent drug offenses and issue full pardons for three individuals" Rep. Dean replied, "I applaud @POTUS for his decision. For too long we have allowed the "war on drugs" to over-criminalize Black, Brown, and Latino communities. We can reunite more families and help heal communities through the profound power of second chances." (04/26/22)

"It’s past time to legalize marijuana, release those behind bars for nonviolent marijuana convictions, and expunge past marijuana convictions. Black and brown communities have suffered enough from a failed 'War on Drugs.'” (04/20/22)

"People of color are 4x more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than white people. Today, I will vote for the MORE Act to decriminalize marijuana and to fund services and legal aid for those harmed by failed federal drug policies — especially communities of color." (04/01/22)
