Fight Addiction. End the War on People.

The War on Drugs has nurtured the very drug trade it purports to fight through the incredibly high profit margins and incentives which prohibition creates.

The War creates gang warfare and violent crime as cartels battle for turf.

The War has created a combat mentality among law enforcement towards ordinary citizens.

The War has normalized cruel and unusual punishment -- Arrest, Prosecution, and Incarceration -- for victimless offenses

The War is blatantly racist in targeting, persecuting, and warehousing young men of color

The War has destroyed millions of lives and continues to break apart families and turn otherwise law-abiding citizens into lifetime criminals

The War has bloated the corrections and testing industries at the expense of education, infrastructure, and investments for our future

The War has left millions of Americans to prison and probation, leaving the United States with the highest incarceration rate of any nation in history, higher even than oppressive states like the Soviet Union and China

After 50 years of destroying lives, drug cartels, arms dealers, and the industries of corrections and testing have profitted long enough. We can fight addiction and end the war on people.
