Dear Editor,The alleged “study” by the Drug Policy Alliance appears untrue in at least two respects (“Citing high black arrests, NAACP endorses pot legalization,” Capitol Weekly, June 1).

Defendants accused of possession of one ounce or less of marijuana are charged with a misdemeanor, and are thus entitled to appointment of a public defender if
