Dear Kansas Lawmakers:
Recognize the policies and approaches used in the decades-old War on Drugs for what they have been: financial waste & societal failure. Update marijuana laws and direct funding toward proper resources that will enhance the well-being of the Sunflower State, as opposed to throwing piles of cash at policing, whose de facto goal in any War on Drugs is, by design, to battle sectors of the very public they are meant to serve. There are more sensible—fair, just & productive—approaches to the matter than writing checks and militarizing domestic law enforcement organizations.
