Saw a little of it on T. V. and low and behold, checked mail and something in there referring to it.
¿The war on drugs is a monumental failure by any measure. Drug consumption, cost, this failed experiment has turned into a breeding ground for a prison system that is based on racism. An African-American is ten times more likely to be incarcerated for the exact same drug crimes as a white American. In order to keep this drug war alive, we are paying an astronomical price,¿ said Dylan.
¿The cost of incarcerating 150,000 prisoners is $3.3 billion in 2010. And yet prescription drugs, pills, marijuana, are more prevalent in our society than ever. It is time to start treating drugs for what they are ¿ a massive public health crisis, and funnel those wasted billions of dollars toward real reeducation and using people in the human capital that we are destroying in our society to harness and release it in our goal to create 30 million jobs.¿
Sorry to hear this, turtletoes. Hope you will be getting better quickly. Last year they took a couple of pre cancerous spots off my nose. This completely blew me away. I have fairly dark skin. I seldom got sunburns. No history of it on either side of my family. But I had it. Now I have to remember to where a hat when I am outside.
