Drug laws have historically been racist. Marijuana activists are helping minority dealers go legal. Lawmakers and legalization advocates are demanding remedies to address decades of demonstrably racist policing. Though whites and African-Americans use marijuana at roughly equivalent rates, people of color face more arrests. Now, advocates are promoting laws that automatically expunge criminal records for marijuana dealing and possession, as well as policies that would give minority communities assistance in building cannabis businesses.

It really doesn't matter on which race is included for those committing drug-related crimes - All people involved should be equally apprehended for what they have done, not for this to change due to subjective beliefs. Racism has been going on for a very long time - And even if there are laws to help against this there are still individual bias to interrupt.
