Endangered Species Condoms!
I like these endangered species condom wrappers, produced by the Center For Biological Diversity — and not just because they taught me how to correctly pronounce snowy plover, or because I often think about the hellbender when I’m feeling tender.  They make an important point about the link between human population growth and the dramatic population decline of other species.
The wrappers were designed by Lori Lieber and the artwork was created by Roger Peet. Don’t share these images without acknowledging them!

Goldie Taylor Drops Knowledge On Marijuana Legalization
We’re about to find out if she’s right —and it sounds about right (to me anyway)
Four things we know NOW:
1) Cannabis arrests have been increasing: in 2012 alone, police made one marijuana arrest every 42 seconds
One would think that the legalization of pot would cause a decrease of those arrests, HOWEVER
2) profit motivated ~*private*~ prisons are a very real thing and they are BIG money with BIG  lobbyists (the good news here is that CO. is actually closing prisons)
3) The price of legalized marijuana will probably go up…way UP

and that alone increases the likelihood of an illegal underground market
4) Like nearly every other criminal arrest, marijuana arrests are very heavily racially biased

(via regulatemarijuana.org)
So…IF a significant number of cannabis arrests are still made in Colorado due to an illegal underground market, and (or?) IF the for-profit, private prisons still need to be provided with a fresh supply of disproportionately Black and Latino inmates, all of that corporate greed & racial bias won’t just evaporate away into thin air. Those are not terribly big ifs, but time will soon tell
remember: racism and racial bias in the criminal “justice” system is ALWAYS at play and this IS Colorado we’re talking about (where the ONLY three men on death row are ALL BLACK — in a state that has only 4 percent Black people)
(h/t to Kashann Kilson for collecting all of @GoldieTaylor's tweets on Storify)

Important.

Very interesting. Hadn’t thought of this. UGH.  But the War On Drugs was always the War on Brown People with Drugs. ssgmh:
