Despite Congress's ongoing attempts at reducing wasteful spending, the expensive and failed drug war continues.
More than a trillion dollars has been spent on the war on drugs with little to show for it except over-crowded prisons, enormous racial disparities, and rising rates of overdose fatalities.
It is past time to stop wasting taxpayer money on drug policies with a record of failure.
Now is our chance to demand that Congress stop wasting money on this catastrophe -- take action today!
