Whether or not you support marijuana legalization, you can't deny that this is one heck of a campaign advertisement:
GARY CHAMBERS: Every 37 seconds, someone is arrested for possesion of marijuana. Since 2010, state and local police have arrested an estimated 7.3 million Americans for violating marijuana laws—over half of all drug arrests.
Black people are four times more likely to be arrested for marijuana laws than white people. States waste $3.7 billion enforcing marijuana laws every year. Most of the people police are arresting aren't dealers but people with small amounts of pot—like me.
I'm Gary Chambers, and I'm running for the U.S. Senate.
This is not Chambers's first rodeo:
Chambers previously ran for Louisiana's 2nd Congressional and has worked as a social justice advocate and community organizer in Baton Rouge.
Regardless of his eye-catching campaign, the Democratic candidate has an uphill battle: Louisiana has been solidly Republican for decades, and Chambers will be running against GOP incumbent John Kennedy, who remains a longtime fixture in Louisiana politics.
