Author, editor, columnist, and gay rights activist juggernaut Dan Savage branched out from his core civil rights issue Sunday, with a video about how one person is arrested for pot possession every 42 seconds in America.

Internet TV channel TakePartTV is hosting Dan’s weekly video project titled American Savage. On Sunday, Savage posted “42 Seconds: Pot Legalization and Marijuana Reform” wherein he recapped legalization in Washington and Colorado, and listed “reasons why everyone should be happy and everyone should get involved.”
