On Monday, during an interview with the Des Moines Register, 2020 presidential hopeful mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Pete Buttigieg said drug possession should not result in jail time.

Buttigieg said, “Incarceration should not even be a response to drug possession. What I have seen is while there continues to be all kinds of harms associated with drug possession and use, it is also the case that we have created in an effort to deal with a public health problem, we have created an even bigger problem — a justice problem, and it’s own form of a health problem when you think about the adverse aspects on a child. We have kids in South Bend who have grown up with the incarnation of a parent as one of their first experiences.

“...kids in South Bend who have grown up with the incarnation of a parent...”

To play devil’s advocate, how has that “war on drugs” been working out for this country? How many billions of dollars and lives wasted?

Watch the drug use hot spots absolutely explode. Then blame it on a lack of federal funding, apathy of white society.

I see what Buttgig is doing here. He is once again pandering to the Black Vote.

Blacks are arrested in greater percentages for their illegal drug possessions. He wants to hand them a "Get out of Jail Free Card".

Now this is just me and my Opinion. We all are we and we all have opinions as well as other things. So, if everyone in the clown car are raving lunatics does that not open the way for their base to find a savior that can try to win the center idiots back from Trump? The Wookiee and Hillary aren’t it, I don’t think, but I think the left is courting a boogeyman. Just a poser?

I’m always perplexed about legalization of drugs. Does that mean street dealers playing doctor and pharmacists would have state licenses for distribution? Does this mean all are innocent when people die of drug abuse from addicts getting drugs by these people/ Where is the dividing line if everything is legalized?
