There are now 20 cases posted on The Pot Page detailing arrest circumstances of those charged in Milwaukee County last year with felony possession of marijuana second offense or greater. And guess what! Not a single person charged was white! And not a single person charged was female! Eighty-five percent of the arrests occurred in the city of Milwaukee, with 75% occurring north of I-94. Sense any patterns here?
