Raul Acosta on Drugs


Drug use is a cultural problem

Q: Drugs are immoral: enforce more laws against them?

A: Let's look at why the majority of people in prison are drug sellers, users, or criminals associated with drugs. What does this say about our culture?

Jails filled with victims of drug use

Q: On the War on Drugs: increase spending or decrease spending?

A: Change the terminology. The victims of drug use are overcrowding our jail systems. We have over 1 million prisoners...1 million! That's disgusting.
