New York Times Calls for Ending Federal Ban On Marijuana

The New York Times on Saturday called for the federal government to repeal its ban on marijuana, likening the federal law outlawing the drug to the failed prohibition of alcohol in the 1920s and '30s.

In the editorial, posted to The Times’ website Saturday and which will appear in print on Sunday, The Times said the federal ban on pot has resulted in enforcement that is “racist, falling disproportionately on young black men, ruining their lives and creating new generations of career criminals.”
