The democratic senate candidate Gary Chambers Jr released an ad campaign showing him smoking marijuana this week. The ad not only mentioned his candidacy, but also stats about the disproportional amount of arrests of African Americans for marijuana related crimes. Chambers tweeted this quote along with the ad, "I hope this ad works to not only destigmatize the use of marijuana, but also forces a new conversation that creates the pathway to legalize this beneficial drug, and forgive those who were arrested due to outdated ideology,"
