“It has become clear to me that while we fill our prisons with low-level drug offenders, the illegal drug trade, drug abuse and addiction continue in the face of the 'War on Drugs.'"
During the 1980s, David witnessed first-hand how the lives of young men and women were drastically changed as they were sentenced to decades in prison as a result of their involvement in drugs.
Later, as a professor of criminal justice and legal studies, David became convinced that the “War on Drugs” is an unsound policy and is, in fact, doing great harm to our society in many ways. As a professor, David began to notice and conduct research into how our nation’s drug policies lead to prison overcrowding and a disconnect in our social priorities. His research is what led him to LEAP. “It has become clear to me that while we fill our prisons with low-level drug offenders, the illegal drug trade, drug abuse and addiction continue in the face of the “War on Drugs.” Until drugs are legalized and addiction and abuse are treated first and foremost as public health issues, the nation will face continuing problems resulting from overcrowded criminal dockets, overcrowded prisons, deaths as a result of drug overdosing, street violence, the spread of
Tonite (6.24.2014) we covered:
The LIES of Hitlery. She claims she is NOT rich even though she and SIKO are in the top .01%! They are in the top 1/100th of the top 1%! SIKO said they go to the local grocery store on weekends and talk to people. They could rent a 2 BR apartment and live in it for one year on an income of $54,000 (the median family income in America) to see how the average American family lives. Will they ever do that? NO!!! They HATE the American suckers and LIE to them every chance they get! They laugh and mock all Americans knowing that 99% are too stupid and too gullible to see through their satanic LIES and hypocricy. Hitler Jr. also claims that she and SIKO earned every penny they have made. They earned NOTHING! Neither has ever worked a real job for even one day in their miserable, hellish nightmares existences! They are parasites who live off of gullible suckers and their billionaire masters - the ROTTENfellers, bushes and ROTTENshield CRIME family.
Hitlery was also intimimately involved in the assassination of Ambassador Stevens.
The current War on Drugs is a fake war. A real war can be won in 25 hours.
Key criminals in the VA falsified records and kept veterans waiting for critical treatment for months resulting in the deaths of dozens of vets.
IRSS claims two hard drives crashed that contained vital emails so they threw them in the trash. Tech companies can recover data from crashed hard drives with ease. The IRSS criminals destroyed incriminating evidence. The emails are also stored on servers like Yahoo, MSN, Google, etc. and can be retrieved. The NSA collects every email in the world and they can also retrieve them. The individuals who sent and received the emails also have them on their computers. The IRSS LIED and are trying to trick the GOP and WE THE PEOPLE!

Tonight we'll discuss the failed War on Drugs which has cost the american tax payer billions upon billions of dollars. It's one of the worst wastes of tax payer money in history (aside from war itself) and is a battle which allows crime to blossom and violence to erupt. It's a war over some obscure sort of reinforced authoritarian morality over mental stimulation (Beer & Tobacco; which kills a holocaust worth of folk yearly are legal. Marijuana has never killed a single human being and is illegal) and tonight we will have a no-holds barred coversation on this dicey issue. We'll attack the sacred cows of tobacco & alcohol and talk truth over the nature of narcotics in human history
Listeners are encouraged to call in. As always, we're open lines tonight.
Welcome to the show,
The War on Drugs and its impact on the U.S. Part 3.
We pick up the discussion from last week and take a closer, and possibly more personal look, at this internal struggle to control illegal substances.
There are two pieces of the pie: Supply Reduction or Demand Reduction. Which is the right approach? Which is the most effective and efficient way to fight this war? Is it doomed from the start because we are fighting to win a war, when we should fighting to win the battle?
You never know what someone thinks, feels or knows unless you ask. But, most importantly...you must listen!
Tune in live to You Never Know with Donney Jackson @ 11:00AM CST, Saturday, May 9, 2013 on blogtalkradio.com/donneyjackson
Year-end 2013 - Can you believe it?
Much ado about nothing, much ado about much.
What does 2014 have in store for us?
What has 2013 taught us?
Will we repeat the mistakes of 2013? Build on its triumphs?
For sure, I want to tackle what I see, as Barack Obama's War on the War on Drugs. Huh?
Well, he decided NOT to challenge non-medical marijuana laws, claiming he has "bigger fish to fry". He even on an occasion, called for a "debate on drug legalization", while claiming to be against legalization of drugs.
How about Eric Holder's position on "non-violent drug offenders", which practically MAKES LIGHT OF ILLEGAL DRUGS?
Of course, we'll hear about the "crack vs. coke" argument, supposedly laced in racism.
Either way, get ready for a year-end BANG discussion, on Critical Discourse!
We welcome as our guest, Judge James P. (Jim) Gray, the 2012 Libertarian Vice Presidential Nominee. Judge Gray ran as Gary Johnson's running mate. Judge Gray is a nationally known and respected author and speaker who has long advocated reform of the nation’s drug laws. A highly regarded jurist, Judge Gray served on California’s Orange County Superior Court from 1989 to 2010. His hundreds of media appearances have included Fox News, ABC, C-SPAN and radio stations across the country.
We will be discussing America's failed "War On Drugs" and other issues with Judge Gray, who will be joining us for the entire program. We will take questions for Judge Gray during the last portion of the program.
August 27 - U-PREDICT - WHAT ABOUT THE WAR ON DRUGS?My research on the intended topics brought up one major fact, the rest of the world has a much better understanding and USE what we consider illegal for legal purposes. Is it time the United States stopped our silliness?
The war on drugs has been a total failure say leading authors and psychologists. It has cost the country almost a trillion dollars.
Dr Mike Rezz a criminal psychologist and an expert in substance abuse says by decriminalizing drugs abusers and making them pay for their drugs legally, would infact see a fall in substance abuse similar to the ending of alchol prohibiton.
Portugals drug rate fell dramatically when it decriminalized drugs and the Swiss model saw a staggering drop in crime in area's where clinics were based for addicts to buy their drugs at $10.00 a go.
Professor Ian Gilmore, former president of the conservative Royal College of Physicians has said the use of illegal drugs should be decriminalized, ‘drastically reducing crime and improving health’.
Some questions need to be answerd. Should people be criminalized for substance abuse? Who is profiteering from criminalisation and what action is being taken to prevent the 35,000 or so deaths each year from "legal" prescription drugs.
In the 70's Ronald Reagan came up with the campaign, "Just say no", a feeble attempt to combat the drugs epidemic in the United States. Not much has been done to address the issue since. Drug cartels are out of control, our Border Patrol is fighting a no-win battle that doesn't even make headlines and no presidential candidate addresses the issue on their campaign platform.
Steven Grumbine joins me again tonight to chat about this U.S. problem and the passage of the law which legalizes the use of marijuana.
Tune in at 8pm ET, Lette's Chat!
