This is electric a must watch if you want to see the Drug War end.
The Institute of the Black World 21st Century has called for an end to the “War on Drugs,” and hosted a forum looking at the impact of those policies on the African American community. Speakers include the Reverend Jesse Jackson, as well as John Conyers (D-MI), the ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee.
President Richard Nixon first used the term “War on Drugs” 40 years ago to promote his national drug control initiatives, and subsequent administrations have pursued variations of those polices since then. This event took place at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.
