U.S. New Jersey Senator Cory Booker’s (D) proposal to legalize marijuana on a federal level comes face to face with new opponents. Among them is the national non-profit and non-partisan organization ‘Smart Approaches to Marijuana’ (SAM).

 

Senator booker feels the federal marijuana prohibition unfairly targets minorities and the poor who are being arrested on pot related offenses.

S.A.M. President and CEO Dr. Kevin Sabet, who previously served in the Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations as an advisor for the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, says they agree with booker that minorities are unfairly targeted and arrested for drug related offense and that prison terms more harsh for african-americans than whites.

However he says their scientific research shows that legalizing weed won’t solve the problem and make it go away just like that.

“This is a policy that benefits upper class rich white guys from Wall Street, not the residents of New Jersey and certainly not the under served residents of New Jersey,” said Sabet.

He says they’ve started an ad campaign showing their research and the arrest disparities between white kids and hispanic or african-american kids.
