on an up note, Gov Christie just signed a bill to allow for the treatment of PTSD with medical marijuana.

 

I'm actually surprised by this, pleasantly surprised

That's a great watch.  But many here are not going to like it.  The fact that blacks and latinos are targeted more heavily by law enforcement, for the same crimes, is not popular in the PH.

Can you elaborate?  

Minorities are targeted because they are concentrated into small communities and their illegal drug activities are more visible than suburban white drug activities.

 

The WOD™ exacerbates  this concentration by increasing poverty and dissolving families causing higher levels of gang affiliation and crime.  Thus increasing the level of targeting of minorities in response, which catches up more minorities than those who are involved.
