“It’s time to end the War on Marijuana,” the American Civil Liberties Union proclaims this week in its boldest effort on the issue yet.

According to the ACLU’s comprehensive new report: “The aggressive enforcement of marijuana possession laws needlessly ensnares hundreds of thousands of people into the criminal justice system and wastes billions of taxpayers’ dollars. What’s more, it is carried out with staggering racial bias. Despite being a priority for police departments nationwide, the War on Marijuana has failed to reduce marijuana use and availability and diverted resources that could be better invested in our communities.”
