16. The controlled substances act needs to be repealed.

We really do need to find out which politicians are prohibitionists and vote them out. This policy has caused so many problems in our country. We have more people in prison than any other nation. We can't tell the difference between our police and our military. The police have become an occupying military force in our own nation. Our 4th amendment rights have been taken away. There is no accountability. Who is going to police the DEA? They have far too much power and their agency needs to be overhauled and stripped of much of its power. Drugs should be traded legally and regulated rather than sold on the black market. Yes drug abuse is a problem, but this decades old policy does nothing to solve that, and everything to make matters much much worse. We now have a drug abuse problem and a citizen abuse problem. These types of stories will continue to appear until drastic changes are made.
