8. where've you been?
We've been needing a voice such as yours around here lately. One to bring us off the incredibly petty nature of Primaries at DU. I couldn't agree more with your assessment. Unfortunately, i believe some radical changes are in order. The MIC (which i believe is part and parcel to the PIC) is as strong as it ever will be and it will take nigh a mighty effort to break its hold on world domination.

More people were imprisoned for possession of MJ this year than for all violent crimes put together. That doesn't seem fair to me. It's a plant fer chrissakes...

Mandatory Minimums are a travesty of justice every fucking time...

This needs work people! Who's going to change this system for the better? Kucinich? Edwards? Clinton?

Has any candidate taken a position on non-violent drug offenses and/or mandatory minimums?
