If you commit a crime and you're black was it even a crime? It's racist to arrest black people.

Is it illegal to be in possession of a controlled substance?

Does your feelings about the law change the law?

Accusations of racism and outrage in 3, 2,....

All of you victims should read David Goggins book "can't hurt me". We all need to be accountable for our actions despite your race. Is life fair..nope. fuck fair, be a man, fair is for pussy's. It's adversity that makes us stronger. Gold is always refined in a fire. Look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself "is my behavior going to place me in a position where I lose my freedom"? "Is driving around with illegal drugs the best choice for myself and my family"?

This generation of weak minded soft bodies is going to usher in an era of hard times.

“Hard times create strong men, strong men create good times, good times create weak men, and weak men create hard times.”

The cycle is unavoidable, so I'll go be a man about it and stop posting in this weak minded thread.

Honestly it shouldn’t matter one bit what color his skin was, if he was able bodied or not, or what gender he identifies as. None of that matters. What does matter is that he was a human and was the victim of the state. That should be more than enough to generate outrage in any person who values freedom and justice. Anything else is a distraction to the issue and that distraction might be difference between freedom for all and freedom for some later on down the road.

Seriously if we are not sufficiently outraged by the violation of humans at the hands of the government without a bunch of specific qualifications that need to be present, how will we ever be able to unite against these inequalities and effect real change? Imagine if your neighbor was accused of torturing dogs. Would you be unconcerned until you found out the breed of the dog? Is it okay to torture Poodles as long as no collies are harmed? Or is it just abhorrent to torture dogs?

If something is fully legal in at least one of the 50 states it shouldn't be able to be anything more than a small ticket in any other state.

Absolutely agree with both of you, just don't get caught slipping by the government, they won't hesitate to incarcerate you. If you get incarcerated for something you know full well will get you incarcerated,  well...who's fault is that, probably someone else's.

I think they should also change the name of the "marijuana" card to cannabis card. Marijuana is a racist term related to it and they know it.:mad2:

Marijuana: is it time to stop using a word with racist roots?
As marijuana arrests disproportionately affect minorities, controversy grows over a term prohibitionists hoped would appeal to xenophobia


In 2016, there were almost 600,000 US marijuana arrests, more than for all violent crimes combined. It’s been known as dope, grass, herb, gage, tea, reefer, chronic. But the most familiar name for the dried buds of the cannabis plant, and one of the few older terms still in use today, is “marijuana”.

For the prohibitionists of nearly a century ago, the exotic-sounding word emphasized the drug’s foreignness to white Americans and appealed to the xenophobia of the time. As with other racist memes, a common refrain was that marijuana would lead to miscegenation. Harry Anslinger, the bureaucrat who led the prohibition effort, is credited as saying back then: “There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the US, and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz and swing result from marijuana use. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers and any others.”

Today “cannabis” and “marijuana” are terms used more or less interchangeably in the industry, but a vocal contingent prefers the less historically fraught “cannabis”. At a time of intense interest in past injustices, some say “marijuana” is a racist word that should fall out of use.

Harborside, which is among the oldest and largest dispensaries in California, says on its website: “‘Marijuana’ has come to be associated with the idea that cannabis is a dangerous and addictive intoxicant, not a holistic, herbal medicine ... This stigma has played a big part in stymying cannabis legalization efforts throughout the US.”

It’s clear why a business like Harborside would prefer the more scientific word for branding purposes, but does that mean everyone should follow along?

The word “marijuana” comes from Mexico, but its exact origins remain unknown. According to the book Cannabis: A History by Martin Booth, it may derive from an Aztec language or soldiers’ slang for “brothel” – Maria y Juana.

The practice of smoking it arrived in the US from the south during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Mexican laborers and soldiers carried it into the American south-west. Sailors brought it from Brazil and the Caribbean when they docked in New Orleans, where black jazz musicians adopted it.

In the last few years, the US state marijuana legalization experiments have grown into a multi-billion dollar industry. But while companies build out multi-million dollar grow houses and edibles factories, huge numbers of people continue to face serious consequences for possessing negligible quantities. After legalization in Colorado, arrests of black and Latino juveniles for illegal possession increased.

In 2016, there were almost 600,000 US marijuana arrests, more than for all violent crimes combined. The vast majority of those pot arrests were for low-level possession – and disproportionately affected minorities.

Statistics show different races use marijuana at roughly the same rate, but racial minorities are far more likely to face punishment. According to the American Civil Liberties Union, between 2001 and 2010, African Americans were arrested for marijuana possession at almost four times the rate of whites.

Relatively few of the 600,000 will serve extended prison sentences for marijuana-related offenses, but having a past conviction can still block access to housing, student loans and employment.

With legalization, some states and communities want to help those carrying minor cannabis convictions to be able to clear their record. Similarly, several cities and states are trying to create so-called equity programs to enable entrepreneurs from communities hit hardest by the war on drugs to join the industry.

But when the industry had the chance to take a stand against the racism of the past, it backed down.

After the 2016 election, Donald Trump nominated the then Alabama senator Jeff Sessions to be attorney general, the country’s top law enforcement official. While some Republicans, including Trump, have expressed a willingness to co-exist with marijuana, especially for medical purposes, Sessions remains an unreformed drug warrior. In 2016, he said: “Good people don’t smoke marijuana.” Instead of protesting his all-but-assured confirmation, the industry’s primary trade group, the National Cannabis Industry Association [NCIA], decided not to risk angering him.

The now attorney general has since reversed the more lenient Obama-era policies and ordered federal prosecutors to pursue the most serious charges they can, likely resulting in more drug offenders spending longer in prison.


Is marijuana a medical miracle? The truth is, we still don't know. For Sessions, it’s easier to come down hard on ordinary lawbreakers, who are disproportionately black and brown, than state-licensed cannabis business owners, who are overwhelmingly white.

The industry’s response has been to let him – while encouraging people to call the plant cannabis.

As with other symbols of past oppression, from the pink triangle to the n-word, there’s a powerful tradition of marginalized communities redeploying symbols of their oppression. It’s these communities – not businesses – who have the moral authority to decide if marijuana is a racist word which should be avoided or an important reminder of a more racist past.

This article was amended on 29 January 2017 to correct Harry Anslinger’s first name.
Americans have had enough ...
... and are marching for justice in unprecedented numbers. They are responding to generations of police brutality and systemic racism, a desperation fueled by a pandemic and an economic crisis that have hit black Americans disproportionately. A mass movement has come together to say: we've had enough.

It's not just Americans. All over the world, citizens are protesting the marginalization of communities of color. Still, virtually nothing has been done to address racial and economic inequality in decades. Words, yes; action, not so much. Those who have the power to effect meaningful change have failed to do so.

At a time like this, an independent news organisation that fights for truth and holds power to account is not just optional. It is essential. Because we believe every one of us deserves equal access to fact-based news and analysis, we’ve decided to keep Guardian journalism free for all readers, regardless of where they live or what they can afford to pay. This is made possible thanks to the support we receive from readers across America in all 50 states.

Our business model is coming under great pressure from an unprecedented collapse in advertising revenues, and we’d love your help so that we can carry on our essential work.
