It is no secret that Council Member Marion Barry is a prolific tweeter about politics, sports and popular culture.
But scanning tweets last night – this one jumped out at me:
We've got to also take away the odor of marijuana as probable cause. Young black men are being stopped and profiled unfairly due to odor.

From NBC Washington:
“The Council invited the public to testify Wednesday and Thursday on a bill that would decriminalize small amounts of marijuana, making it a $100 fine rather than an arrest and a criminal record.”
