Free Speech debuts on the Metro tomorrow

A picture named decrim_ad.jpgIf you’re in Washington, DC, check out the new ads on the Metro starting tomorrow with the words: “Marijuana Laws Waste Billions of Taxpayer Dollars to Lock Up Non-Violent Americans.” (click on the picture for a larger version)
These are the ads that Representtive Istook tried to stop by passing legislation that would deny funding to metro systems that accepted ads based on a particular point of view. The court in June rightly found that Istook was full of… the legislation was unconstitutional, and now the ads begin to air.
Drug WarRant past posts on the topic here.
Kudos to ACLU, Change the Climate, Drug Policy Alliance, and Marijuana Policy Project for their efforts.
