Kansas Republican lawmaker says black people can’t handle marijuana because of ‘their genetics’
    #24899500 - 01/08/18 11:20 PM (13 days, 12 hours ago)

https://www.rawstory.com/2018/01/kansas-republican-lawmaker-says-black-people-cant-handle-marijuana-because-of-their-genetics/amp/



A Kansas state Republican lawmaker resurrected a Jim Crow myth that African Americans are genetically predisposed to handle marijuana more poorly than other races during a speech over the weekend.

As the Garden City Telegram reported, State Rep. Steve Alford (R) told an all-white crowd that marijuana was criminalized during the prohibition era in the 1930’s primarily because of black marijuana use when asked a question by a member of the local Democratic party about potential economic boons from cannabis legalization.

“What you really need to do is go back in the ’30s, when they outlawed all types of drugs in Kansas (and) across the United States,” Alford said. “What was the reason why they did that? One of the reasons why, I hate to say it, was that the African Americans, they were basically users and they basically responded the worst off to those drugs just because of their character makeup, their genetics and that.”

As the Telegram noted in their report, Alford’s comments referenced a belief promoted by marijuana prohibitionist Harry Anslinger, the founding commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics.

“Under Anslinger’s leadership, the FBN came to be considered responsible for the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937,” the report noted, “regulating cannabis and further taxing it to the ultimate detriment of the hemp industry that was booming at the time.”

“Reefer makes darkies think they’re as good as white men,” Anslinger said once when explaining why marijuana supposedly caused crime and violence. The commissioner also fought for the prohibition of cannabis due to “its effect on the degenerate races,” the Telegram noted.

At this point, a face palm post icon is needed. What a stupid fat moron. I'm nearly speechless at the utter stupidity.

Looks like someone is about to lose all their credibility as a lawmaker.

What a stupid piece of shit. His parents should be ashamed as should he.

Good jobbing make your state look like even more of a joke, feel free to pass on all the benefits of legal cannabis while the rest of the states make billions and create countless jobs, increase tourism, bring down black market cannabis crime, etc. Seems like this is the kind of stuff you should be jailed for saying, I am a super white guy but this is still incredibly disturbing...

In other news Kansas needs some new lawmakers.

One thing I've never heard is "hey let's go visit Kansas!" Probably won't be hearing that anytime soon it looks like.

Well on a bright note it will potentially shed some light on the folks who got this whole cannabis prohibition snowball rolling and help people outside the know how ridiculous the minds were that crafted that whole movement. :shrug:

I just really would have liked to see the moment he realized that he booted himself in the ass.  I reckon, priceless..

I saw a joke on another article about this. It went something like, "the reason there hasn't been a Wizard Of Oz sequel is because it's too hard to convince anyone Dorthy wants to go back to Kansas these days :lol:

It's sad waiting for resignations is where we have come to after all these years.

For saying something like that he should be thrown out on his ass immediately, maybe even charged for being so offensive and blatantly racist.

I agree he should lose his position, however, the last part of your post is a little too Orwellian for me.

No thought police for me, thank you very much.

That's not thought police anymore though, since he didn't really keep his thoughts to himself. Now it's just regular "You're an idiot" police.

:whathesaid:

If I were to go to most workplaces and make similar comments I would probably get kicked out immediately at the very least. He should be held to a higher standard if anything.

Black people can certainly handle their marijuana. Nearly every black person I know smokes marijuana.
