Presidential Hopeful Jim Webb Hints At Support For Radical Drug Policy Reform

Former Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.), who on Thursday made his presidential ambitions official, suggested earlier this week that he supports decriminalizing drug use, a position that makes him the most progressive voice on drug policy among the current field of contenders. “Just as in mental health issues, I don’t think it makes a lot of sense to put someone in jail when they have a disease, when they have an illness, a physical illness,” Webb said Tuesday at the National Sheriffs’ Association Conference in Baltimore. “There’ve got to be better ways for us to approach the issues of drug use in…

Obama Commutes 2 Marijuana Sentences And 44 Other Drug Offenders

President Obama commuted the sentences of 46 non-violent drug offenders on Monday, two of which were for marijuana. The president said the 46 prisoners had served sentences disproportionate to their crimes. “These men and women were not hardened criminals, but the overwhelming majority had been sentenced to at least 20 years,” he said. “I believe that at its heart, America is a nation of second chances. And I believe these folks deserve their second chance.” According to the Washington Post, Monday’s commutations mark the most in a single day since the administration of President Lyndon B. Johnson. Obama now has…

15 People Rotting in Prison for Life for Drug Crimes That Didn’t Hurt Anybody

(Ed. note: President Obama recently announced his intention to more aggressively use his powers to grant clemency to non-violent offenders. But the vast majority of those affected by draconian drug sentencing will be unaffected.) The American Civil Liberties Union reported in November 2013 that 3,278 Americans were serving life sentences for non-violent crimes. Many of these individuals are behind bars for charges related to drug possession or minor instances of drug trafficking. The U.S. Bureau of Prisons reported in 2010 that the average annual cost of housing an inmate is over $28,200. Because of their life sentences, they are typically denied access to drug treatment,…

The Pointlessness of the Workplace Drug Test

Last year, U.S. workers peed into one drug testing company’s cups about 9.1 million times. And last year, as in other recent years, analysis of about 350,000 of those cups indicated drug use. Most often, the drug of choice was marijuana, followed by amphetamines and painkillers. The data are a little patchy, but the best estimate is that about 40 percent of U.S. workers are currently subjected to drug tests during the hiring process. Intuitively, that seems like a good idea: A sober, addiction-free workforce is probably a more productive workforce and, in the cases of operating forklifts or driving 18-wheelers,…
