As a black woman, my community is disproportionately negatively affected by Marijuana criminalization. Minorities are targeted for possession, and putting people in jail or prison for drug offenses has torn communities apart. I am an advocate for clean water in Flint, and legalization of marijuana is something that would heavily benefit the community. Because of Flint’s financial situation, residents have to pay high water rates and exorbitant fees to supplement the government’s funds. The increased tax revenue from marijuana would alleviate some of the burden that the residents have to face.
