    I don't believe the war on drugs will ever end.
    Wars are intended to be won.
    This war seams to be against the disenfranchised / poor.
    A never ending revolving door. It's perpetuated by capitalism to keep the prison system nice and fat. It makes for a good source of revenue.
    Let's see if you can by stocks on prison system? Hehehe
    And the answer is sure can.
    Truly sad. It looks like the value of human life is deteriorating. We must stand together and fight back with those who are willing to elevate The morels in our nation.

    Can we all agree that our government is the number one pusher of drugs? They want to make it legal so they can better handle ALL of us. A few packs of smokes cost more than a bag. Come on!
    You get your name on a list and monitored. Keep it illegal but lower sentences so we don't end up losing our constitutional rights and working for less than dollars a day in a private owned prison or worse. Because you smoke pot, you can't own a gun to protect yourself?

    We have to remember the white towns that have gone to meth when the factory relocated and relabel this issue an ECONOMIC issue rather than only one of race. This is just a side topic, but drugs and crime are colorless when there is no money. Realizing that frees people of color from being disproportionately associated with drugs and crime for a change.

    The reason that "drugs and crime go hand-in-hand" and that drug dealers "can't use courts to collect debts" is BECAUSE DRUGS ARE ILLEGAL! If drugs were legal then dealers would be able to use the courts to settle disputes, including debts. Sessions can NOT be this stupid! He has to know that crime surrounding any black market is because IT'S A BLACK MARKET!

    There is no doubt that Sessions is the the worst possible outcome. He will devastate people's lives who do not deserve that.

    a "racist" war on drugs bwahahahahaha. Only if your black and a drug dealer but we have seen a even arrest attack accross America no matter your color. Just as Sessions has been taking out these nasty child abducting human trafficker rapists. Get over the race card bullshi already. The elite ( black elites too ) are bringing in the drugs and the minority communities ( regardless of color) get dumped on to keep them right were they are or put them in jail to line more elite pockets. Wake up!! Stop the drugs – remove the disease.. but the elite don't want you to stop doing drugs so they fight it using the race card. pathetic.

    carl hart you low life "black racist bastard" the reason your people deal in drugs is because they in general are to fucken lazy or too stupid to work for a living it's either drug dealing / pimping / contract killing / welfare abuse / this racist asshole seems to forget that there are a lot more whites living in poverty than blacks this "race baiter" is typical of these whiners,

Blacks don't want any incarceration. They Blame whites, cops and incarceration for there absolute disgusting lack of accountability. This fuck blames Sessions when he needs to realize we as people are sick of this crap and want mandatory sentence for all drug crimes. Period!

    We can only hope that Mueller nails Session's ass for his connections to the Russians. The problem is that if and when Trump goes down, Pence is as anti-drug as Sessions. You also have to fight the alcohol lobbyists and private prisons.

    Are drug laws being used as a ladle to gather and pick out blacks and Latinos for targeted repression under the umbrella of the war on drugs?

    Apparently, white Americans do more drugs than black and Latinos and the opioid addiction rate has become problematic in white parts of some states.

    These devils know the war on drugs is code for the war on blacks and Latinos. They've always known that we are Gods chosen people.

    22 But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭42‬:‭22‬ KJV)

    Eric Holder is a liar, a traitor and a fool. He should be arrested, tried and shot on internet…worldwide TV. Tbe fact that this woman uses thjs vile murderer to establish her position means that – like most of her komrades in the 5th column – she is lart of the conspiracy and needs to be eliminated as well.

    Gotta keep those for profit prisons full.

    Plus, felons lose the right to vote. Why do you think the cops and prosecutors go after black and brown people with so much venom and convict them so much more often than whites who commit the same offenses?
