Michelle Alexander: White Men Get Rich from Legal Pot, Black Men Stay in Prison | Alternet


Here is an idea. Why not release all the young men and women currently incarcerated for cannabis related crimes. Give them micro-loans to start businesses in the Cannabis industry. Teach them, help them grow. Help them expand the economy not just in cannabis smoking but also hemp seed foods, hemp oil, wax, resin, rope, cloth, pulp, paper, and fuel.

In one full swoop the economy problem, the prison population problem and the jobs problem could be solved.

Perhaps that’s just thinking too crazy.
