New District Attorney of Philadelphia, Larry Krasner announced that his office will drop charges against 51 people for marijuana possession. The new D.A. also stated that if police pursue fining people for possession. Krasner's office will continue to drop cases.
The District Attorney's goals are to treat drug addiction as a health issue and not a crime issue.
“As a society, we failed many people during the crack epidemic by treating it solely as a law enforcement problem rather than a health problem. Many people spent time in jail when they should have spent time in treatment. No doubt, criminalizing addiction happened in part because the people affected were mainly African-American, Latino and poor" Larry Krasner stated in The Inquirer.
Philadelphia is the next largest city to drop weed charges. San Diego and San Francisco both eliminated thousands of marijuana-related convictions after California's recreational market. The Marijuana Justice Act, a federal bill that aims to end marijuana prohibition.
