The travesty of draconian

The travesty of draconian laws for nonviolent drug users while corruption reigns unchecked at the pinnacle of power just makes my head spin. I'm outraged and troubled by this cruel injustice coupled with the greed of privatized prisons (Another story in itself).


Thank you for raising awareness with your unflinching and fact-supported posts. You tear off the masks of tyranny and dare us to look beyond our complacent perspective, and if even one person discovers some compassion in their hearts, then you've just made this world a far better place.


Your light gives me hope. Thank you.
