What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

clap.gif I applaud the intent, but I'll believe it when I see it.
That's the first step to dismantling the prison industrial complex, and I'm not certain that will happen.

If he did that the states would have to follow up with legalization. There would be tremendous resistance from certain groups because of the $billions that would be lost.

Look at the way the propaganda rags weaponize this.

Quote:Amid opioid epidemic, White House may cut drug control office budget

In the midst of an opioid addiction epidemic, the Trump administration is considering a plan that would gut the Office of National Drug Control Policy, a White House office that directs the country’s drug prevention efforts.

The president's budget office is proposing to slash the drug agency’s budget by 95 percent, according to a letter the ONDCP’s acting director, Richard Baum, sent to employees.

In his letter, obtained by USA TODAY, Baum warned that the move would be “very discouraging for our nation's effort to address drug abuse.” He said the budget plan would zero out two programs designed to combat drug trafficking and to fund local anti-drug efforts.

Baum said he was working to reverse the proposed cuts.

"These drastic proposed cuts are frankly heartbreaking and, if carried out, would cause us to lose many good people who contribute greatly to ONDCP's mission and core activities," he wrote. "We hope to turn this around."

Fifty years of "drug war" and trillions of dollars and things have only gotten worse.

Watch the people who come out against this and mj legalization and you will see some of the people who profit from the WoD.

I assure you this will never happen, even though all of this should be States issues. If States legalized everything, put a tax on it the money taken in would be earth shattering.
The same amount of people are going to smoke crack if it's okay or illicit.
Someone like me who has never done it, is not going to try it because they are educated.
