Calif NAACP to back pot legalization initiative
By MARCUS WOHLSEN (AP) – 6 hours ago
SAN FRANCISCO — The NAACP's California chapter pledged its support on Tuesday for a marijuana legalization ballot measure, saying current laws are unfairly used to target minorities.
The group highlighted findings it says show the arrest rate among blacks for low-level marijuana crimes far exceed those of whites in the state's largest counties.
"Justice is the quality of being just and fair and these laws have been neither just nor fair," said Alice Huffman, president of the California State Conference of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
The November ballot measure would let adults possess up to an ounce of marijuana for personal use. Residents could legally grow small marijuana gardens, and individual cities and counties would decide whether to allow marijuana sales.

Now, I'm not against legalizing weed but to say the laws are unfair to minorities is race baiting bullshit. Here's an idea. Since it's against the law, don't do it. Or is there some biological reason why blacks need to smoke weed?
