The City of Fayetteville continues to arrest hundreds of people for marijuana use despite the 2008 Low Prioritization law. Our community has offered 4 solutions to this violence. They are:

1. Immediate end to misdemeanor marijuana arrests.
2. Immediate implementation of an advisory committee to ensure fair policing and prosecution in Fayetteville.
3. Immediate end to funding of and participation in the Drug Task Force, and instead funding opportunities for disadvantaged young people, like resources for the ALLPS school.
4. Immediate implementation of a prosecutorial policy to drop the charges of anyone simply possessing marijuana.
