Ken’s Comments:   This is the kind of “run of the mill” headline we see in papers every day, all across America. End the war on drugs! READ How the War on Drugs has Destroyed Justice How the “War on Drugs” has Destroyed Justice!   Is this going to stem the flow of drugs into our communities? Hell no!

If you are an otter, you might be gobbled up by an alligator. If you are a gazelle, you might be gobbled up by lions. If you are a monkey, you might be gobbled up by a python. If you are a human, you might be gobbled up by our criminal justice system! If you don’t think so, you might be very sadly mistaken. There are at least 10,000 INNOCENT people rotting away in our prisons today! To understand the problems and the solutions, spend an...

Ken’s Comments:   Sure, because it makes sense! I repeat my prediction that within 5 years more than half of the states in America will have legalized pot, tRump and Sessions notwithstanding (they will be long gone).  “Any way you slice it”, the harm of  prohibition outweighs any harm caused by legalization.  Excerpts:   Marijuana will be legal nationwide in Canada starting Oct. 17 in a move that should take market...

This Vermont Prosecutor Is Pushing Back Against the DOJ’s Drug Warriors – supervised injection facility (SIF)

Ken’s Comments:   Too few prosecutors see that drugs are bad but the war on drugs is worse. Many who do are my colleagues in LEAP. Chittenden County State’s Attorney Sarah George sees that many of our drug policies make no sense, and she favors supervised injection facilities for addicts. They have been proven to  lower mortality and reduce the spread of diseases such as HIV and hepatitis B. Excerpts from the Article:  ...
