BLACK LIVES MATTER
The history of cannabis reflects many injustices. Black people are 264% more likely than white people to be arrested for cannabis possession, even though they use at similar rates - according to the ACLU. These disproportionate numbers leave many people of color sitting in prison cells for what is legal in a majority of states.
