Comments

On Jabari Brisport's website he writes: 

"Legalize Marijuana. Marijuana prohibition has thrust thousands of New Yorkers into the criminal legal system for non-violent offenses. Once released, the formerly accused can be legally denied housing, student loans, employment opportunities, voting, and other vital services. Marijuana use poses no threat to our community, but the system of policing it draws individuals into our carceral and criminal-legal systems and draws resources away from necessary services. New York must pass a Marijuana Legalization act that legalizes the use of marijuana, creates a regulated and taxed cannabis industry, and provides for various social and economic justice initiatives."
