    The debate on whether or not to legalize marijuana is one that is contentious at best, but Illinois gubernatorial candidate Daniel Biss brilliantly breaks down why doing so is really about racial justice.

    “The application of cannabis law, in Illinois and America today is fundamentally biased. The law is applied completely differently in communities of color, as compared majority-white communities, and it’s wrong and it’s immoral,” Biss says in a local classroom.

    “Instead of pretending that we can somehow avoid that, I think it’s time that we solve the problem the correct way by legalizing the recreational use of cannabis. That to me is the core issue.”
