Newsvine – US law fights submarine-like boats hauling cocaine

leave a comment »

To quote somewhat out of context, Walter Cronkite, distinguished television journalist and author, sailor and Overseer of the US National Maritime Historical Society:

In terms of lost lives, wasted money, and eroded civil liberties, the casualties of this war grow daily.

  • Thousands of terminally ill patients are cruelly being denied the modicum of relief that medical marijuana could provide.
  • Millions of Americans are wasting away in jail for non-violent drug offenses.
  • Billions of dollars are being spent pursuing small time users…instead of treating addiction, reducing poverty, and targeting king pins and major traffickers.
From a renewal membership request from the Drug Policy Alliance.
