It’s no secret police practice has long-resulted in a disproportionate number of criminal cannabis charges depending on race. If you missed James Forman, Jr.’s Chicago-Kent speech in 2017, this is a great place to join the conversation. Forman taught us that cries for drug-related solutions do get funding, but these funds are channeled into creating criminals. Keep following Chicago-Kent’s Cannabis Law Society to find out where the divide between “drugs” and “medicine” begin to blur.

Browse Forman’s book, Locking Up Our Own: Crime & Punishment in Black America.
