Re: “Oakland Green Lights Drug War Reparations, Passes Marijuana Equity Program

Being arrested and convicted for dealing drugs has nothing to do with whether you are dealing drugs. The government need not prove their case. Nor do they ever

Why don't police walk through the halls of any corporate office with drug sniffing dogs? And eventually, when the dog alerts, seize all their property and go on a fishing expedition for other corporate crimes (insider trading, defrauding pensions, etc)

Your BS narrative of the black criminal is a self fulfilling prophecy.

Re: “Oakland Green Lights Drug War Reparations, Passes Marijuana Equity Program

The vast majority of arrests aren't dealers. They are consumers. Whites and blacks consume at equal rates. Whites predominantly don't get arrested. And we're filling the prisons with black drug users.

You're entitled to your opinion but not your own facts.

Re: “Oakland Green Lights Drug War Reparations, Passes Marijuana Equity Program

There have been (for almost a century) hoards of Wall Street players who consume and sell hoards of cocaine and they get a pass - no stop and frisk.

As to rewarding criminals, what do you think Wall Street is? The republican narrative is, when criminals are rich and white then the government is evil and the criminal is innocent. But when the criminal is poor and black, this narrative is turned on its head. "Conservatives" (they aren't conservative in the least) can't stand it when anyone but Wall Street, oil companies, and the banks get massive subsidies and congratulations for their crimes.

As to your definition of a "crime" just because people pass racist laws that make crimes out of things that aren't crimes, that victimize blacks not whites, doesn't mean anyone should abide by these insane laws. In fact, we have a moral obligation to disregard these laws.

Re: “Oakland Green Lights Drug War Reparations, Passes Marijuana Equity Program

@charlie pine: news flash: blacks are arrested for weed (nationally) 4Xs more than whites, and depending on the neighborhood, sometimes as much as 110Xs more.

Google "marijuana arrest disparity"


But I guess, according to folks who don't like facts and data, blacks are treated the same as whites.

Re: “From Harborside to Marijuana Legalization to Oakland's New Pot Rules, A Recap of the Bay Area's Wild Weed Week

IRS Section 280E "is highly prejudicial. It was never meant to apply to state-authorized cannabis dispensaries. It was meant to target street drug dealers."

"Street drug dealers"??? Really? That's some thinly veiled racist shit right there! What the heck is the difference between D'Angelo and some "street" dealer aside from the size of their wallets and the color of their skin? Weed is weed no matter who sells it.

Re: “Legalization Is NOT A Burning Issue for Californians

It doesn't matter how important the issue is to voters. What matters is whether people will vote for it.
