The failed war on drugs

Failed War On Drugs

Enforcement of the drug laws falls disproportionately on African-Americans, who, according to surveys, do not use illegal drugs in greater numbers than members of other ethnic groups, but account for much more than their share of prisoners serving time for mere use of illegal drugs.

Barack Obama, Mitt Romney and the other leaders of the Democratic and Republican parties are all committed to the so-called war on drugs.   It is the leaders of the so-called minor parties who want to put a stop to it.
