The South Carolina NORML Cannabis Convocation, a Cannabis Conference and Trade Show.
Collateral consequences like denial of housing, employment, college loans, child custody etc. often last a lifetime after even the smallest of marijuana convictions. No matter how you feel about marijuana, most people agree people should not pay for life. Much of the public is not aware of these collateral consequences.
This event will help bring awareness to how having a marijuana possession charge can ruin lives.
We want our communities to see the human cost of cannabis prohibition, and how decades of propaganda influenced perceptions led to stigma influenced policies denying Americans life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
In South Carolina the overall arrests for marijuana possession have increased by about 115%, from around 15,880 in 2016 to 34,229 in 2018.
South Carolina’s policy of criminalizing minor marijuana possession is not working. It is needlessly creating criminals and burdening South Carolinians with convictions. The human and social costs are enormous, in addition to the millions of dollars it costs South Carolina taxpayers. And the negative consequences of the current approach fall disproportionately on African Americans and people of color.
That is why South Carolina should decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana, address past convictions and start moving toward legal and regulated adult use.
Each participant will receive a copy of A Citizens Guide to Changing Local Laws by Ballot Initiative in South Carolina
