16. Read the "New Jim Crow"

It's about holding power and making profit at the expense of the poor.

"the objective conditions of drug use alone cannot explain why drugs became an issue immediately prior to the 1986 Congressional elections. Explanations for the rise of drug usage as a social problem are to be found primarily in the political realm."

from: Drug Abuse and Politics: The Construction of a Social Problem --Eric L Jensen
