Keisha Lance Bottoms on Drugs

 

 


Restricts minor marijuana charges from background checks

Bottoms is ordering that records of minor marijuana possession charges be restricted from employers' background checks. "The fact remains that communities of color are disproportionately affected by the lingering stigma of victimless, minor offenses--even long after the accused have paid their debts," said Bottoms. "This outmoded practice deprives our communities and workforce of brilliant and promising minds, all because of an unfair justice system that can and will be course-corrected."
