Reagan's war on cannabis is where the U.S. incarceration nation began.

Drug war + Trickle-down Reaganomics, = mass incarceration and mass control.
Ronald Reagan, 1980 campaign speech [117]: "Leading medical researchers are coming to the conclusion that marijuana, pot, grass, whatever you want to call it, is probably the most dangerous drug in the United States, and we haven't begun to find out all of the ill effects, but they are permanent ill effects. The loss of memory for example."
