do nothing until I can be sure". Merchants know better.
If you do nothing, you lose. Don't be one of those merchants
who wont risk the ocean!
Here's the point.. you're looking at affirmative action, and
you're looking at marijuana. You legalize marijuana, no need
for quotas, because really, who's going to want to work?
