    •Minneapolis, MN – The Minneapolis police chief announced that the department would no longer conduct sting operations to arrest dealers who sell felonious “small amounts” of marijuana, after allegations were raised that officers had unfairly targeted economically disadvantaged black men and women.

    Undercover officers arrested over 100 people between January and May as part of a crackdown aimed at shutting down open drug dealing, WCCO reported.

    Forty-seven of those arrests were felony marijuana sales.

    Hennepin County chief public defender Mary Moriarty noticed that 46 of the 47 individuals charged were black, and quickly complained to Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, the Star Tribune reported

    It's semi-legal in MI right now, under the medical marijuana law passed by the voters a few years ago. It's on the November ballot this year for recreational use. The MM law basically makes it legal for everyone over 40 who has the money to pay the doctor for the card.

    Yet the business opportunities, even in the MM system, are amazing. It's not just producing the weed or making products out of it. The products have to be tested by a lab for THC amounts, so there are jobs in that area, too. I see it as a way of employing people who might not be employable, otherwise (i.e. failing a drug test because they smoke weed). As it stands, none of our border states has it (Ontario has major decriminalization, but not actual legality), so there is that potential. It gives the Ohio State Troopers one more thing to harass people with MI plates over.

    Minnesota is a breeding ground right now. It is really sad. Increased shootings and crime. Migration from Chicago. Social programs encouraging it all. But let's focus on treating marijuana users with kid gloves.

    President Trump will be in Duluth for a rally on June 20th, rocking the lake-shore. His first rally since the success of Singapore.

    " Should be a good one. "

    He'll probably have a few choice words to say about Punchy. And Trudeau's droopy eyebrow, which eerily coincided with the dropping of the Canadian-dollar since the G5-plus-2.

    More evidence that facts scare liberals. The fact is that more blacks were arrested because more blacks were selling felonious amounts of marijuana. In the eyes of those belonging to the PC crowd, this truth must be hidden so they stop arresting everyone. Better to have criminals roaming free than to have the citizens know the truth.
    Liberals! The real fascists.
