Public Enemy

This is a screenshot from the documentary "The House I Live In".

The two certainties is that there is no democrazy with widespread drug use. I don't know what political system we have. Something close to a kindergarten class for 400 million people? And the second thing is that the criminalization of drugs doesn't affect drug use.

"What drugs haven't destroyed, the war against them has." - David Simon, Journalist, Creator of The Wire

If Nixon had doubled the federal minimum wage instead of the minimum sentence for drug possession, this would not be a problem today.

Maybe sentence a crack user to an all-expense paid semester at Duke. Is that so crazy?

But don't listen to a stoner. Trust Nixon.
