Over the past 15 years, more than 85 percent of the half-million-plus people charged with misdemeanor possession in NYC have been black or Latino.

In Atlanta, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Washington, more than 80 percent of the people arrested for pot possession are black.

In Minneapolis and its Hennepin County suburbs, black people are 11 percent of the population and more than half of those busted for possession.
