Black History: equal distribution

● More than half of all drug arrests are for marijuana-related offenses, according to a June 2013 study by the American Civil Liberties Union

● African Americans are about three and a half times more likely to be arrested [in the United States for marijuana-related offenses] than their white counterparts; Latinos are about two times more likely.

“After 40 years of impoverished black men getting prison time for selling weed, white men are planning to get rich doing the same things - So that’s why I think we have to start talking about …How do we repair the harms caused?” ~ Michelle Alexander

Weed fairness.
