The state that locks up the highest percentage of black men is Wisconsin. The national average is 6.7%, but in Wisconsin it's 12.8% - more than three percentage points higher than the second-placed state, Oklahoma
One thing I do know is that passing laws like this will only make the problem worse:
http://www.examiner.com/article/state-s ... -bill-24-9
Senate Bill 150, the Republican-sponsored anti-pot bill that would give municipalities the power to enact local ordinances to prosecute pot cases rejected by local district attorneys passed on a 24-9 floor vote Tuesday in the State Senate.
This is what bothers me the most:
Six Democrats joined with Republicans to pass SB 150, which was passed at a time when 20 states and Washington D.C. have medical cannabis laws, Washington and Colorado have legalized adult use, and federal authorities are backing down on the war on pot and allowing states to set their own policies.
NOTE to backwards ass WI legislators: the rest of the country is laughing at us.
WTF Mark Miller and Tim Cullen?
