Now, this blog isn't just about me. Prohibition affects and has been affecting plenty of other people in some pretty fucking horrible ways.
"Nationwide, black men are sent to prison on drug charges at 13 times the rate of white men."
"A recent report by Human Rights Watch found that while drug use is consistent across all racial groups, Blacks and Latinos are far more likely to be arrested and prosecuted and given long sentences for drug offenses. Blacks constitute 13 percent of all drug users, but 35 percent of those arrested for drug possession, 55 percent of persons convicted, and 74 percent of people sent to prison. Nationally, Latinos comprise almost half of those arrested for marijuana offenses"
What more do you have to know? The police, the DEA, and the penal system make up a corrupt, racist conglomerate set on flushing minorities down the toilet...with the help of prohibition.
