Either way the drug policy in this country has been a miserable failure and needs changed.

if you get caught, own it and keep your mouth shut. i have seen more guys get thrown in prison, not because of the alleged crime, but because they pop off at the cop or lie thru their teeth and johnny law dog doesn't like that.
why do these thing shock us tho? you got folks who do crimes and you got folks who try to catch them. and many times lines are crossed or frustration mounts for one guy trying to do the right thing and see somebody else skate.

Yes certain folks are targeted and if you don't fall into that demographic how would you know. When they started privatizing prisons and having shareholders to please there was a push to get more prisoners. Guess who? Look at the crack/cocaine laws in particular lower income people never had a chance while suburban kids could walk out of jail with mom and dad and grandpa. Consider yourselves lucky and privileged because many black youths weren't as lucky.
Big money exploits the weakest people(financially) in our society and always have. That still hasn't changed. A return to common law is the only answer for this nightmare of a fed world. The war on drugs makes certain agencies big big bucks on the sales side and the prosecution side of things. Open ur eyes

3. END THE DRUG WAR. It is not only an abysmal failure, it has returned us to the days of slavery. We have locked up millions of African-Americans and Latinos and now fund a private prison-industrial complex that makes billions for a few lucky rich people. There are other ways to deal with the drugs that do cause harm – ways built around a sense of decency and compassion. We look like a bunch of sadistic racists. Stop it.
