Using Drug Laws as a Political Weapon


During the Obama years, federal prosecutors used common sense in the charges and sentencing leveled against low level, non violent offenders of our Draconian drug laws. Our new Attorney General,Jefferson Beauregard Sessions, has just reversed that by instructing federal prosecutor to go for the most harsh charges possible. This means that mandatory sentencing guidelines will kick in, and low level non violent marijuana offenders once again will face long and life destroying prison sentences. In short, Session wants to once again use drug laws as a political weapon.

Who does this harm? …………………………………………….

Young people and racial minorities, who are the most likely to run afoul of prosecutions for possession or trafficking of small amounts of marijuana. And maybe your nephew in college.

Who does it serve? It serves vindictive authoritarians like Sessions and Trump, looking for ways to put non violent but troublesome persons in prison for multiple years. But don't worry, it leaves prosecutors with just enough administrative discretion to make absolutely sure that no children of rich people get put away.


For whom is Jefferson Beauregard Sessions named?

Who was P.G.T. Beauregard? ………    Who was Jefferson Davis?

Jefferson Davis and P.T.G. Beauregard participated in an armed insurection against the legal democracy of the US government.
