"The War on Drugs was a failure, but more importantly it was a farce – ultimately, drug laws were used as a tool to profile Black people and Black communities, in the name of public safety. The arrests and incarceration that resulted from the War on Drugs disrupted lives, separated families and caused great economic and social harm to Black and Brown communities. In the wake of cannabis legalization, these harms need to be repaired by requiring a social equity approach to all emerging cannabis markets."
- De-incarceration – people should not be in jail for selling cannabis, when others are making a fortune for the same thing; furthermore, the records of those who were convicted for selling cannabis should be immediately expunged
- Decriminalization – the federal government should listen to the will of the people and de-schedule cannabis immediately
- Economic Equity – economic and business support should be provided for Black and Brown entrepreneurs to eliminate the barriers of entry into the cannabis market; furthermore, tax funds from cannabis sales should be used to repair economic and social harm to communities that were disproportionately targeted in the War on Drugs
