Do you think the drug war has had a good success rate? Do you think it's actually stopping drug usage? Or do you think it's a failure and that all it's done is send millions of people to prison for victimless crimes in order to generate revenue for the big corporations that run the prisons?
If you think the "War on Drugs" has been both helpful and successful (lol), please explain why.

The war on drugs is all about money. Alcohol is legal, and tobacco was a founding cash crop of this nation and is still legal today. Most illegal controlled substances are so, because they supply and production can't have a USA stranglehold on it for proper taxation.
The war on drugs was also used as a tool, to keep my fellow black Americans socio-economically suppressed, after my people were gaining some real socio-economic traction by building up their own communities and having strong family units. Having crack cocaine possession be higher than actual cocaine itself is illogical and cannot be defended logically.1
