“He’s falling for the fantasy that people are in jail for the drug use when the reality is that they end up in jail over other crimes with drugs being an associated crime.”
Perhaps a falicy many voters fall for as well. Maybe we should let this and all future reference pass?
In any-event the Federal government has no business making or enforcing laws against drugs except when those drugs are in the act of crossing an international or State line.
Even then it should be our States that do the bulk of the enforcing. The Federal constitution contains no authorization for such domestic laws.
