STATES SPEND 3.6 BILLION ENFORCING RACIALLY BIASED MARIJUANA LAWS

Today’s New York Times is reporting that the nation’s marijuana laws are enforced 4-to-1 against blacks, even though usage rates between blacks and whites are similar.  Racially biased application of the law is costing states 3.6 billion dollars annually, and ruining hundreds of thousands of lives. Decriminalization is the only answer.
