TIME Mag: Blacks, Bias, and Marijuana — Did Drug Stigma Contribute to Trayvon Martin’s Death?

“Martin’s possible experimentation with pot should be no threat to his reputation.

The idea that marijuana makes people dangerous is as absurd as the claim that wearing a hoodie is suspicious,” TIME writes.
