The war on cannabis is the most dangerous thing about the plant !! While governments continue to lie about cannabis and why it is prohibited, many lives have ended, been destroyed or significantly harmed by that war on the plant! There are thousands of people serving time in prison for cannabis and thousands of children growing up without their parents due to continued cannabis prohibition. Meanwhile, safe access to a safe medicinal plant continues to be denied to many!
According to the ACLU’s original analysis, marijuana arrests now account for over half of all drug arrests in the United States. Of the 8.2 million marijuana arrests between 2001 and 2010, 88% were for simply having marijuana. Nationwide, the arrest data revealed one consistent trend: significant racial bias. Despite roughly equal usage rates, Blacks are 3.73 times more likely than whites to be arrested for marijuana.
