7. Ask the millions of people who have been arrested and jailed for simple crimes of possession

over the last 5 decades.
Most of them people of color, targeted and prosecuted more than whites intentionally.
Lots of lives have been ruined because of this rigged system.
Your apathy and lack of concern for these people is noted but the rest of us are grownups able to be active on several fronts as we work to push this country forward.

Speaking of work if you are going to make an argument maybe you should use real facts, like the fact that Jamal Ahmad Khashoggi was a legal resident, working in the USA, not a citizen as you stated.
That does not make his murder any less tragic and horrible but it does put you in a terribly weak place in a debate over the topic if you make that mistake again when discussing this issue that you are so passionate about to the abandonment of all other areas of concern..
