Abstract

In 2015 at a Maine Marijuana Summit, just months before this U.S. state would vote on legalization, a progressive state representative, Diane Russell (D-Portland) urged activists not to become distracted or divided over the question of who would make money after prohibition ended. In the face of the need to end the War on Drugs, she said, “conversation about who makes profits in this industry is irrelevant” (Russell 2015b).
