Last night I heard someone who says that they are a Black person state on a radio program that cannabis legalization could perhaps lead to more Black people being arrested and terrorized because under white supremacy, they have separate rules for black people and separate rules for white people.
Lets not get it twisted; the drug war is not the root cause of the mass incarceration/re-enslavement of Black and Brown people. White Supremacy and a slave based prison economy is the root cause of it. The Drug war, specifically, the criminalization of the cannabis plant is just a tool the system uses to achieve its goal. Logic dictates that the fewer tools your enemy has to use against you the better off you will be and we will be as a people. Common sense is not common but let us not try to make sense of the illogical.
