End the prosecution of low-level drug offenses

The war on drugs has only served to balloon prison budgets, while creating an underclass of primarily Black, Latinx, and Indigneous people who have been separated from their communities and even upon release, bear the permanent collateral consequences of conviction. Unnecessary contact with the criminal justice system can have long-lasting emotional and economic consequences particularly for Arizonans of color. 

On day one, I will dismiss every pending low-level cannabis case and dictate office policy that no personal-use amounts of cannabis will be charged and that no objections will be filed when those convicted of such offenses move to set aside their convictions.
