Over the weekend, #StateRepSteveAlford claimed black people’s character and genetics made them more susceptible to marijuana use and caused the United States to ban the drug in the 1930s in response to a question from a #prolegalization constituent, Finney County Democrats president Zach Worf, at a Garden City Area Chamber of Commerce Legislative Coffee session. “What was the reason why they did that?” Alford said. “One of the reasons why, I hate to say it, was that the African Americans, they were basically users and they basically responded the worst off to those drugs just because of their character makeup, their genetics and that. And so basically what we’re trying to do is we’re trying to do a complete reverse with people not remembering what has happened in the past.” Those remarks were reported Monday by The Garden City Telegram before the #Kansas House began its first meeting of the 2018 legislative session. Alford’s legislative peers quickly criticized those remarks, some calling them #racist.
Alford later apologized, and Ryckman said he issued an apology to his constituents. “I was wrong, I regret my comments, and I sincerely apologize to anyone whom I have hurt,” Alford said in a statement. “Substance abuse is a blight on our society, and legalizing marijuana only opens the door to harder drugs. I have seen firsthand how drug abuse destroys lives, even within my own family, and I remain committed to fighting the spread of #addiction in our state."
Seriously... #wtf is wrong with people?
He thinks we're worried about a persons "genetics" and "character"?
Well we are!!! We're worried about YOUR inbred genetics and lack of critical thinking... Mr. "State Representative" Steve Alford.
A GOP lawmaker in Kansas said that African-Americans "responded the worst" to marijuana because of their "genetics" and "character makeup." State Rep. Steve Alford (R) said at a “Legislative Coffee” session on Saturday that Jim Crow-era policies banning drugs such as pot were to protect other citizens from the drug use of black Americans. “Basically any way you say it, marijuana is an entry drug into the higher drugs,” Alford said, as first reported by The Garden City Telegram. “What you really need to do is go back in the ’30s, when they outlawed all types of drugs in Kansas and across the United States.”
“What was the reason why they did that? One of the reasons why, I hate to say it, was that the African-Americans, they were basically users and they basically responded the worst to those drugs just because of their character makeup, their genetics and that,” he continued. “And so basically what we’re trying to do is we’re trying to do a complete reverse, with people not remembering what has happened in the past.” Alford was talking to a crowd with no black people present, according to the Telegram.
The lawmaker was responding to an argument by Zach Worf, president of Finney County Democrats, in favor of legalizing marijuana in #Kansas, saying it could help the state’s economy.
Worf said he later told Alford that his comments were “the most #racist thing [he had] ever heard.” Other #Republican state lawmakers later disagreed with Alford’s comments.
