Even trying to be smart on crime hasn't drastically reduced drug arrests. In 2014, an estimated 11,2015,833 people were arrested, approximately 1,551,231 of them for drug crimes, which makes for 4,277 drug arrests every day. But that's not enough for Sessions; he wants more people charged, preferably by the U.S. attorneys who work for him, convicted and sentenced to the maximum penalty.

Simple possession is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in prison under federal law – the first time someone gets caught. The second charge is a felony with a mandatory minimum of 15 days and a maximum of three years' imprisonment.

The places where this is happening the most – and where the most arrests can be made – are counties that voted overwhelmingly for Trump, a Pennsylvania State University researcher discovered shortly after the election. One might argue that people who have only witnessed – and not been a part of – the opioid crisis voted for a law and order administration to solve the drug problem, but the numbers make it hard to believe that Trump's supporters are immune to the addiction epidemics taking place around them.

Take Mingo County, West Virginia, a community of about 25,000 people where 84 percent of voters supported Trump and, over 6 years, 780 million doses of oxycodone were sold. So many pills flooded the community that every adult in the county could have become an addict. We are foolish to assume that support for Trump and opiate addiction can't overlap.

62,000+ Americans will die of opiate overdose in 2017. How many Americans will die at the hands of Islam? Seems that Christian Sharia, anti-freedom policy, is much more harmful

That is Congress. DOJ, police etc just enforce existing law. Decriminalization starts with congress and Trump has to sign it. That is the one area I am very disappointed, however no dem has come forward that they would do that in their platform.

You're right. It's the Dems fault lmao

However, Bernie ran as a Dem, and atop his platform was ending the Failed Losers War on Drugs, in order to restore Law and Order, Make America Great Again (hemp was the most important crop in this country for over 150 years, many of the Founding Fathers grew it), and make the citizens safe again.

Everyone knows that the greatest danger to out Republic is continuing the Failed War on Drugs. Not only is its dollar cost bankrupting us all, but THE SEVERED BOND OF TRUST between the citizens and law enforcement, puts us all in danger and makes it impossible for them to police effectively.

How do you figure? The existing laws are in conflict.

Trump and Sessions Federal Government archaic laws not only cause great harm, hinder Freedom, and go against the will of The People , They cause far more death and suffering than every Islamic terrorist in history. They also make it impossible for law and order. They also run counter to Science. They also harm Millions of domestic jobs.

More than half of the States citizens have voted to put themselves on the opposite side of The Failed Losers war.

How do you reconcile your tacit support for actions more harmful than Islamic terrorism?

Oxycodone should be available in 55 gallon drums at WalMart. Anyone with a genetic proclivity to addict to it and abuse it would be out of the gene pool within days and the 'problem' would disappear inside of a couple of generations.

And the manufacturers would clean up.

Win-Win!

If you really want to do something about the opiate epidemic we should give Afghanistan back to the Taliban. They has opium production down to almost nothing. Bush somehow didn't know the most of our northern alliance allies were drug dealers also. What could possibly go wrong with putting the foxes in charge of the hen house.

Yup. Then Obama followed with 8 years of war using the exact same flawed regime change goal.

The republican base has been voting against neocons ever since. When will the democrat base learn not to vote for the Obama/Clinton neocons? The left is a bit slow

Trump, libertarians, tea party types, etc... Notice how well Jeb Bush did in the primaries.

Compare that to the left neocons like Clinton and Obama who the dems love.

The left is the party of neocons today. Period.

Want to name all the neocons that have been voted out of congress and replaced by someone who isn't a neocon interventionist? That will be a very very short list.

So what is your projection when opiates are decriminalized?
More, less, the same?

I don't think they will be decriminalized. There's so many Failed Losers in government: Law Enforcement, Judges, probation officers, lawyers, politicians , who couldn't work a real job with any sort of value-add, that rely on the Failed War against the Citizens . They will never allow their horrible jobs program to end. So society, and freedom, pay the ultimate price, and untold suffering will continue.

But hey, at least dumb fuck Christian Republicans are happy, to sit by idly and watch all the suffering. Misery loves company

Yup, Bernie is to the left what the tea party is to the right.

He is a symbol of a new direction as compared to the neocons on the left.

It's begun. Can you blame him? Now that it's obvious to everyone that Trump is a Failed Loser more likely to flood the swamp than to drain it, and he's worthless at getting anything accomplished; no wall, no repeal Obamacare etc, what better way could he spend his time after only five months in office, by campaigning!
