NYC Police Brags About Confiscating Cannabis, Finds Out It’s Hemp

115

The New York Police Department (NYPD) has a troubled relationship with cannabis. Historically—and continuing through to the present—much of that relationship has played out in the form of racially discriminate anti-cannabis policing. For example, even though the city has taken steps to decriminalize weed, NYPD cops continue to harrass and arrest people of color for weed-related offenses. This pattern has been confirmed as recently as July 2018.
