Our Thoughts On Various Policies
Legalization of Cannabis
The only clear winners from the criminalization of cannabis have been drug cartels, criminals, and the prison industrial complex.
The American People lose when capitalist markets are criminalized unnecessarily.
As it was the case during the prohibition of alcohol, criminalization, by definition, creates a black market and a criminal domain.
Legalization and regulation means less crime, less criminals, a safer society, less wasted money on government resources, and more revenue from taxation.
- In the U.S., 500,000 people are locked up for drug possession
- Based on FY 2019 data, the average annual COIF for a Federal inmate in a Federal facility in FY 2019 was $35,347 ($107.85 per day).
- 1 in 5 incarcerated people is locked up for a drug offens
Under my theory of UBI policy it is only distributed to citizens who are not in prison. This serves as a negative punishment that studies show to be an incredibly strong deterrent from committing crimes.
Perhaps more importantly, though, is that UBI would directly address the root cause of crime by addressing one of the biggest factors pushing people to commit crimes — despair.
