  • The typical claim is that Blacks are arrested more for drug crimes despite usage at similar rates.Presumably this is due to racism, however, analysis of the behaviors of different groups of people reveals otherwise. 
  1. Age is typically not controlled. Younger people are much more likely to be caught using and abusing drugs and blacks are significantly younger on average
  2. Blacks are significantly more likely to buy and use drugs outdoors as well as buy drugs from strangers and purchase drugs outside of their homes. 
  3. Blacks take more dangerous drugs and take drugs in riskier/more crime-prone/dangerous areas, with greater police presence according to reports from the Department of Justice.
  4. Lastly, blacks are significantly more likely to lie about using drugs so we can't even say the statement that they use marijuana at similar rates is true or not because most of the data comes from self-report surveys.
