103. Yes, but when your overall policy ie; "War on Drugs" is draconian, dysfunctional and corruptive
to begin with, you will have more draconian, dysfunctional and corruptive incidents within different branches of government taking place, given enough time, government in general will morph into one thing as it becomes increasingly disconnected from an alienated citizenry.

This is the kind of environment that spawns the immoral, corruptive concept of a for profit prison system; as just one more facet of the overall disastrous policy creating a direct loop between imprisoning the American People for profit which in turn feeds the "lawmakers" via bribery/lobbying money and thus enables the morphing to take place.

Meanwhile, organized crime/cartels; are enriched and empowered to adversely affect the people's government either through overt or covert means, eventually I see the "War on Drugs" as allowing them to take over.
