How the Legalization of Marijuana on a National Level will Change Things...Or Will It?

morningamp:

Brian Babylon returned from a Colorado weekend and had some thoughts with co-host Molly Adams on how legalized marijuana changes culture. Michelle Alexander, the scholar who wrote the book ’ The New Jim Crow’, has found that when it comes to the prison system and the war on drugs, people of color are disproportionately prosecuted, sentenced and imprisoned. As marijuana gets legalized, and Colorado’s law becomes the law of the land what are the reparations for this change in the law? Are we going to look at the prison population of people who are in jail for marijuana offenses? Michelle Alexander has stated that white, wealthy people will make money off of legal marijuana while colored people will remained punished somehow. Brian has shared his experiences in Colorado and connected it with her points. Take a listen.
