California to Hand Blacks with Criminal Records Money to Sell Marijuana

California to Hand Blacks with Criminal Records Money to Sell Marijuana

California will hand over cash expropriated from hardworking taxpayers to drug dealers, provided they are black and have criminal records. Yes, I’m serious:

It’s all part of an effort in the Golden State to help more minorities become “marijuana entrepreneurs.” On New Year’s Day, California became the ninth state to legalize cannabis for recreational use, but officials are worried that not enough blacks will qualify for the permits needed to sell weed legally. To address this “problem,” Los Angeles, Oakland and other cities have created “equity programs” that offer no-interest loans and other perks to people who live in poor black neighborhoods and have been convicted of drug crimes.

Those unlucky enough not to be Persons of Politically Preferred Pigmentation will find it harder to get a permit to sell marijuana.

If you’re a white applicant, you can improve your own chances of receiving a permit by “incubating” an equity [i.e., black] applicant, which means making him a 50% partner in the business or giving him floor space in your establishment, rent-free.

If this sort of tyrannical race-based lunacy sounds familiar, you could be thinking of South Africa under black rule.

The progressives who dreamed this up sold it as a way to compensate blacks, who have been disproportionately affected by the war on drugs.

Blacks are far more likely to violate laws in general. Because this includes drugs laws, they are victims of the War on Drugs, and must be compensated at the expense of the law-abiding.

Coming next to California: free taxpayer money for black convicted thieves to assist them in their careers as wealth redistribution entrepreneurs.

Again we see that liberalism is not merely wrong; it is depraved.
