    regarding the deborah simmons article, huh? can someone help crystallize her point?

  • cminus

    @Art, Simmons' point is that she claims to have seen a white person give marijuana to a black person, and if marijuana were legalized the white guy's behavior would be legal, therefore marijuana legalization would do nothing to protect black people from uneven enforcement of our current drug laws. Because apparently it would be legal to sell someone marijuana but not to buy it, and marijuana sellers are all white or Hispanic. Obviously.

    Or, if you want the shorter form, Simmons' point is "standards for getting published in the Washington Times are shockingly low".
