The government’s “war on drugs” has led to the arrest of more than one million people at a cost of more than $38 million to date. That is an arrest every 20 seconds with more than 8,000 people a year ending up in prison, often for low-level, nonviolent offenses.
On the street, this “war on drugs” has become a war on people’s civil liberties. Illegal stops, racial profiling, illegal searches and seizures, entrapment and federal forfeiture laws can take your property and give it to the government.
