Drug War

Somehow, we are fighting the drug war again.  If we would just legalize it already the government could start collecting bucks from hootchie besides making the drug EPA safe and creating a whole legal tax paying industry.  Besides all the research that has preliminary shown that the drug is a medical help.  But no, we have to mess this up again.

“Back when Jeff Sessions was attorney general for Alabama instead of the entire United States, he pushed for a bill that would have established mandatory death sentences for individuals convicted of a second drug trafficking offense — even if the drug was as innocuous as marijuana.

While Sessions’ new directive as United States Attorney General doesn’t go that far, it is definitely a step in a draconian direction when it comes to American drug policy.

The memo, issued by Sessions on Wednesday, instructs prosecutors to “charge and pursue the most serious, readily provable offense,” according to a report by The Washington Post. Sessions’ memo also immediately reverses a policy implemented by Attorney General Eric Holder, Jr. in August 2013, one that ordered prosecutors to refrain from pursuing drug charges if doing so would trigger lengthy mandatory minimum sentences — and if the defendants did not belong to a gang, cartel, or other large-scale drug trafficking organization.  http://www.salon.com/2017/05/12/jeff-sessions-is-bringing-back-the-drug-war-and-making-it-worse/
