Mandatory minimums on drug crimes isn’t racist but Congress can still do better

 

Jeff Sessions’s policy won’t lock up harmless stoners, but it will help dismantle drug-trafficking networks.

While I personally believe that drug use should be decriminalized and managed by the ATF (probably with a slight rename), I also believe that laws should be enforced as written. If Congress chooses to continue to create a black market for drugs, then the law enforcement professionals are duty-bound to enforce those laws.

I truly believe that crime would drop if drugs were licensed with the production and selling of those drugs was monitored, managed, and TAXED.

Calling Mr. Sessions a racist because he has chosen to follow the laws that are written by Congress is absolute foolishness and probably partisanship.

Here are a few salient facts that I have copied from various points in a recent WSJ article. I encourage my reader to click through to the linked article.
