As the war on drug continues, the black community is 5.4 more times likely than whites to get arrested for using marijuana. Legalizing marijuana would help end a pattern of racism that has hurt black people for decades. When a white person is caught with marijuana they get a warning and are told “your just going down the wrong path.” While when a black person is caught with marijuana, they are described as a “bad person” “a thug” “a drug addict” By signing this petition you are helping the black community get equality and racial justice. FREE ALL THE BLACK PEOPLE WITH MARIJUANA CHARGES.
