Jeff Sessions’ Authoritarian Drug Crackdown Won’t Work
YouTube ~ RonPaulLibertyReport
On Friday, US Attorney General Jeff Sessions sent a directive to US Federal Prosecutors to pursue the most severe penalties possible for drug infractions, even if it triggers large mandatory minimum sentences. Like the drug war itself, this new/old approach will prove a dismal failure. We’ll tell you why…

Anabel Hernández, journalist and author, accuses the Mexican state of complicity with the cartels, and says the ‘war on drugs’ is a sham. She’s had headless animals left at her door and her family have been threatened by gunmen. Now her courageous bestseller, extracted below, is to be published in the UK.
During January 2011, Anabel Hernández’s extended family held a party at a favourite cafe in the north of Mexico City. The gathering was to celebrate the birthday of Anabel’s niece. As one of the country’s leading journalists who rarely allows herself time off, she was especially happy because “the entire family was there. There are so many of us that it’s extremely difficult to get everybody together in one place. It hardly ever happens.” . . . Read Complete Extensive Report
The War On Drugs In Mexico
Published on Mar 29, 2013
The HCLU’s video advocacy team travelled to Mexico to film the negative consequences of the war on drugs campaign that has been launched by President Felipe Calderon in 2006.
When they first entered the country the number of people killed in the war approached 40.000. Today, the death toll is approximately 60.000. With the help of a like-minded local NGO, Espolea, they interviewed several politicians, professionals and activists to find out why so many people had to die: were they the necessary costs of an unescapable but winnebale war, as many decision makers say, or the victims of a failed policy? Please watch and share our video to find out the answers!

The editors at US News & World Report are asking the question, ‘Is it time to scale back the war on drugs?’ They’ve assembled a round-table of participants to respond.
Arguing in favor politics as usual are Kevin Sabet, former Senior Policy Adviser to President Obama’s Drug Czar and David Evans, Special Adviser to the Drug Free America Foundation. Predictably, neither author’s platitudes are resonating with US News readers. (Both Evans and Sabet have only 15 ‘up’ votes combined, versus some 650 ‘down’ votes.)
Myself, Aaron Houston (Executive Director: Students for Sensible Drug Policy), and Neill Franklin (Executive Director: Law Enforcement Against Prohibition) take the opposite approach — and are much better received.
When does this madness stop.
Even an idiot can see that this so called war on drugs is a failure.
Of course, those of us who have been watching this phoney war since it started have seen enough paper documentation, video surveillance, whispered audio and blundering government 3 letter agencies to know that the same people keeping the failed drug war on full-speed-ahead are the exact same people making the big bucks off of these drugs. In more ways than one. (Check GO DEEPER at the end of this post . . EDITOR

Come on in to the”THEI Insider Virtual Theater” and get comfortable and watch the first full length documentary we are presenting in our on-site theater, “The Mena Connection”; Bush, Clinton, Drugs, Money and Murder. It’s a good place to start when documenting our governments shady involvement in the War n Drugs.

Like the skeptic always says: “Extraordinary claims must have extraordinary proof”. To put that kind of proof together takes time. Best if viewed in full screen mode . . . EDITOR
