According to a new report by the ACLU:
Between 2001 and 2010, there were over 8 million pot arrests in the U.S. That’s one bust every 37 seconds and hundreds of thousands ensnared in the criminal justice system.
Marijuana use is roughly equal among blacks and whites, yet blacks are 3.73 times as likely to be arrested for marijuana possession.
And the racial disparity in Wisconsin is, once again, worse than the national average. In Waukesha County alone, black people were arrested for marijuana possession at nearly 13 times the rate of white people.
