Ben & Jerry's got blunt on 4/20 by going to battle for the disproportionate amount of minorities getting the shaft when it comes to weed busts.
The famous ice cream company made their thoughts very well known in a 29-second clip calling out a white privilege … straight-up saying that it's hard to celebrate 4/20 when so many people of color are still being arrested for a pot. Ben & Jerry thinks that's not right.

Check out the video … the company wants to celebrate the holiest of holidays for stoners, while while making sure the legalization does not leave people colored behind.
BTW … weed is legal in 33 states but according to one study black people in NYC are 8 times more likely to be arrested for weed than whites. Ben & Jerry says that's NOT cool.
Now that's a company that knows its audience.
