im pretty sure the justice system is also racist as fuck and would be racist as fuck no matter what our drug policy is.

distilling down complicated social factors to just one influencing element seems simplistic and naive to me.
The sheer numbers would be dramatically different because of the lopsided % being incarcerated for drug offenses. Not saying that makes our justice system less racist mind you.
