1 I knew there was a good reason... on 1/9/2018, 8:34 am

A Republican state legislator in Kansas said that marijuana should remain illegal in the state because African Americans are predisposed to respond worse to the drug because of their “character makeup” and “genetics.”

Rep. Steve Alford, from the town of Ulysses in Kansas, made the comments during a weekend legislative coffee session, the Garden City Telegram first reported. During a debate, Zach Worf, president of the Finney County Democrats, argued that marijuana legalization could provide a financial boost for cash-strapped Kansas.

In response, Alford brought out some trusted conservative talking points about marijuana, including that it was a “gateway” drug, before claiming that Americans needed to be shielded from the adverse effect marijuana has on African Americans.

“What you really need to do is go back in the ’30s, when they outlawed all types of drugs in Kansas [and] across the United States,” Alford said. “One of the reasons why, I hate to say it, was that the African Americans, they were basically users and they basically responded the worst off to those drugs just because of their character makeup, their genetics and that. And so basically what we’re trying to do a complete reverse with people not remembering what has happened in the past.”
