Judge Gray lists five immediate benefits of legalizing marijuana and discusses the dangerous addiction that many government agencies have to drug war funding.Judge Gray lists five immediate benefits of legalizing marijuana and discusses the dangerous addiction that many government agencies have to drug war funding.Judge Jim Gray isn’t the bleary eyed stereotype of an advocate for the decriminalization of marijuana. Gray, who has never tried the drug, is a former attorney in the Navy JAG Corps, prosecutor, and a Judge in conservative Orange Country, California. Judge Gray isn’t in favor ending the War On Drugs in spite of that experience. He’s a passionate spokesman for drug policy reform BECAUSE of his experience in law enforcement.

In this exclusive interview, Judge Gray lists five immediate benefits of AB 390, The Marijuana Control, Regulation, and Education Act. The state assembly bill was introduced by Tom Ammiano a Democrat from San Francisco that would decriminalize the sale, production and use of marijuana for adults in California.

Judge Gray also discusses the dangerous addiction that many government agencies have to the funding made available to them by the drug war.

(Sidenote: This is an eight minute video. I’m personally so sick of souindbite journalism that reduces every issue to 10 seconds argument chunks that I want to scream – so this ain’t that. It’s a person explaining a position in depth. God bless the internet.)

If you’re interested in more detail on how the War On Drugs is really a War On Children, Judge Gray’s experience as a judge and prosecutor shown him both the futility and cruelty of prohibition.

    So if we took half the money we spend to make marijuana illegal and instead used it to regulate the legal distribution of it we could more effectively protect those most negatively impacted by it, children.

    Wake up Obama ! quit fucking giggling and wake up. Harper too.
