Parola Perspective: Our racist culture excludes minorities from the benefits of legalized marijuana

By Purple Walrus Press contributor Brooks Parola, formerly of Flint.
Folks, Angela Rye, of the Congressional Black Caucus Institute and Congressional Black Caucus Political Action Committee is absolutely correct. Leave it to our racist culture to exclude minorities from the benefits of legalized marijuana after spending years demonizing them, and throwing them in jail for using and possessing a drug, that much of white America has suddenly decided is okay.
People being held for marijuana use and possession need to be released and pardoned, and the worst thing we can do now, is impose institutionalized racism, (once again) on this budding new industry, after having disproportionally incarcerated blacks for using a drug that never should have been illegal in the first place.
