    and not only republican ones. jailing blacks and latinos and hippies helps to skew primary electorates for moderate and conservative dems just as it helps to skew general election electorates for republicans.

    i'm not as convinced that legalization's progress in states with less blacks is as much due to the absence of blacks, so much as to regional political alignments. the west and new england - where the most progress towards legalization has been attempted and made - are the two least religious parts of the country, and have the two most libertarian-leaning GOP voters, relative to the rest of the country.
