Yes, as of the moment I am writing, the US Federal government and States have spent approximately $23,763,658,629 THIS YEAR on the War on Drugs.
No wonder we are broke. Just think, if this money would have been spent on the agricultural use of hemp, programs to assist folks who have real problems with abuse instead of incarceration, blah blah blah… The list goes on on hundreds of other things we could be doing with $23,763,658,629 instead of fighting this WAR.
When will you wake up America? What is it going to take?
