Is Cannabis Prohibition about Racism and Colonialism as AOC Claims?

One thing that Ocasio-Cortez hits on the nose is the racial origins of cannabis prohibition. Cannabis prohibition still serves as an instrument of oppression, yet – I don’t think racism is at the heart of modern-prohibition. I’m not saying that racism doesn’t exist, nor denying the link between racism and prohibition. I just don’t think that the IOC’s decisions are based in racism.
