It is encouraging that both candidates for county commissioner are on 
record distancing themselves from the current discredited war on drugs. But 
that is not enough.

This is why citizens should vote for Green Party candidate Justin McCarthy. 
McCarthy's experience working extensively with youth, the group most 
affected by drug laws, combined with an interest in reforming historically 
failed drug laws, makes him an excellent choice for the Summit County 
commissioner job.

Drug laws in America today are one of our biggest problems, and McCarthy is 
seriously motivated to help bring the needed changes to bring credible drug 
law reform into reality. The original prohibition on a national scale was 
worse than the booze prohibited, and the sequel, now, on an international 
scale is worse.

At the very minimum, North America must bring credible drug reform and 
re-legalize the plant cannabis (marijuana), especially when you consider 
the worst side effects of cannabis are police inflicted.

Do cannabis prohibitionists even comprehend that they're admitting a desire 
to cage humans for using a plant?
