Jackie Long on Cannabis and Racism

Everyone is effected by racism at some point in their life, regardless of their background.

This study holds strong even though blacks and whites reportedly use cannabis at equal rates.

Jackie stresses that regardless of stereotypes forced upon actors and musician with cannabis use, its is important to keep true to what you believe and be yourself no matter what.
