THE CANADIAN WAR ON DRUGS – Toronto marijuana arrests reveal ‘startling’ racial divide | Toronto Star

We bought into the American “war on drugs” hook, line and sinker and this is the result: “What it’s really done is criminalize an entire generation of young Black males, over something that’s now on the verge of being legal.” “So what we have is a situation where police officers benefited personally from the further marginalization of vulnerable Torontonians.”
Toronto police data obtained by the Star breaks down arrests by neighbourhood and shows disproportionate numbers for Black people when it comes to pot possession charges.
