High racial disparity in Pennsylvania marijuana arrests

According to a report by the American Civil Liberties Union, there is a high racial disparity in Pennsylvania’s marijuana-related arrests. The study shows that whites in the state are 5.2 times less likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than African Americans. This is higher than the national average, in which whites, on average, are 3.73 times less likely to be arrested for this offense. This national disparity is not confined to certain cities or states; it exists in all parts of the country.

Amidst rape accusations, Cosby loses Netflix and NBC projects

For obvious reasons, sex crime charges and convictions can have a profoundly negative impact on defendants’ lives. In some cases, however, even baseless allegations can result in a tarnished public image for those who are accused. When this occurs to prominent members of the Philadelphia community, they often suffer from substantial economic losses as a consequence of this bad publicity.
