Maybe the Best Reason Yet to Legalize Ganja

Marijuana-And-Race
Marijuana-And-Race

We at Evergreen Culture believe that there are some very good reasons to end the idiotic prohibition on marijuana in the U.S. once and for all.

However, after reading this article released by the ACLU those are secondary to the clearly racist fallout of this senseless policy. It really isn’t all that shocking when you consider that racism has been a part of marijuana prohibition from the beginning. Think not? Read through our historical accounts regarding the establishment of marijuana prohibition as well as the establishment of the DEA and the so-called “war on drugs”. You will find that racial prejudice was a cornerstone of the rational and propaganda used to form the policy and convince the public.

Personally, after considering this social impact of marijuana prohibition, we really can’t see any evolved, human-minded person remaining aligned with a policy that is quite clearly destroying so many Americans’ lives. When the percentage of white and black marijuana consumers is equal, but blacks are being arrested and jailed at a rate 3.73 times that of whites, that isn’t some statistical artifact that can be manipulated to suit your purpose. It plainly demonstrates the fact that racism is alive and well in the federal maintenance and policing of American drug policy around marijuana.
