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.

On a tip from Varla.

    It really is.

    This article is too stupid and ridiculous to be true. Nobody is this ignorant.

    reefer madness! although in a way it makes sense, the applicants are already experienced in drug distribution.

    Maybe we’ll see a lot of Al Jolson mimics in California soon.

    It’s tough living in a state making mental hospitals look saner day by day but somebody has to.

    The resistance…

  7. Eddie_Valiant says:

    In the category of taxpayers there must be some that are non-white and will be supporting this madness. I’m waiting to hear their voices over this.

    I’m afraid Trump! will not fulfill His promises on immigration.

    Should this happen, I’m afraid that the rabid Trump! supporters will spin it as a positive for Trump!, like the Perotistas (Perot-bots) did whenever Perot said something crazy.

    I heard a caller into a radio talk show say that Trump! really didn’t mean some of the disturbing things He has said about immigration. I shouted at the radio, “When has Trump! EVER said anything He didn’t mean?” I personally love how Trump! says and tweets exactly what he thinks without being politic or diplomatic or politically correct (or even tactful).

    With Ann Coulter daily tweeting ZERO progress on the wall, I wonder if she still trusts in Trump? Will she publish a new book?

    If it will get pot dealers paying taxes to eat away at the CA debt, and will get gang bangers competing by lowering prices and offering better products instead of shooting each other…may actually not be the craziest thing CA has ever done. Though if they are going to do it at all it the color of your skin shouldn’t affect how your government treats you.

  10. Brian says:

    Dass dope! They should get price subsidies, the newest hybrid strains from the government labs, what the hell, it’s an industry people can get behind.

    The source of the Wall Street Journal.

    Never underestimate the brilliance of the government of California. Just yesterday I was hearing that California is looking at considering taxes paid to the state as “charitable contributions,” making them tax deductible from federal taxes.

  12. Nick Testa says:

    This is disgusting and hilarious at the same time…. Would people expect anything less when you allow bureaucracies in the drug trade? affirmative action now, what’s next, unionization?

    Also, if not giving someone black a loan because they’re black is “racism”, then how the hell is giving someone black a loan because they’re black and black only NOT “racist”? how is refusing a loan to someone because they’re white not “racist”?

    You know, as a libertarian I applaud legalizing weed, however for different reasons than these swamp creatures. Government agreed to legalize just so they can have another industry to tax, regulate, control and dictate – not because it’s none of governments business what people of adult age ingest… Now we have a racist government giving out loans for racist reasons to a bunch of racist drug dealers..

    Like I said, I’ve always been an advocate for decriminalizing drugs, however not even a week in and I’m sick to my stomach…

    Whoa, whoa, whoa! Where the heck are the occupational licensing laws of which liberals are so fond? Surely if you have to have a cosmetologist’s license to wash people’s hair, you need some sort of expensive training and certification to sell products that people are going to put inside their bodies.

  14. Nick Testa says:

    Jeff, none of that is going to happen… Did any of that happen with Bill Clinton’s “Community Reinvestment Act” where banks were basically FORCED into lending to non-whites who would otherwise not qualify for a loan? no, as a matter of fact that collapsed our economy and sent us into a recession after the banks got bailed out on all those loans…..

    No, this is merely California kissing the asses of black drug dealers by giving them free money…. You can bet they will grant these drug dealers free startup capital and a license to sell out of their homes or on the street corner… Do you really think progressives care weather or not they have a legitimate business? when have progressive democrats EVER required standards among their voting base? this is just more pandering for votes.

  15. Occam's Stubble says:

    I have a theory that the Mexican cartels have gotten a lot more violent over the last decade because some US states legalized weed, thus cutting into their markets. With California joining in, it is going to get a whole lot worse south of the border. We’d better start laying bricks and fast.

    “Hold my beer.”

    – California

  17. The Uhlan says:

    What could go wrong? Hold my beer ….

  18. DM says:

    So since marijuana is still illegal federally the state of calif is inducing specific groups to became involved in criminal behavior. Pretty sure that inducing another to commit a crime even if you are a politician is still conspiracy. Just guessing but doubt the politicians involved in the conspiracy will be willing to go to jail if the occasion arises.

  19. DM says:

    Calif has gone way beyond being the land of fruit & nuts.

  20. Tom says:

    Only thing surprising is they arent giving them licenses for free

  21. The Uhlan says:

    No, that’s called entrapment, not conspiracy.
