Bernie Sanders on parole and education

Facebook comments.

Education saves money, because of much less recidivism[79][80]. Save more: Adulthood could start at 16, and that high school money could be allocated to 2 years of free college. College works better because it is voluntary. Nothing really useful for skilled jobs is learned in most poor public high schools. And it is easier to get college loans after passing 2 years of free college.
Republicans care least about the big costs: Wars, drug wars, and US healthcare and incarceration costs compared to the rest of the developed world.

  • Report (from old GMM site):

We began the manifestation in "le parc des chartreux" in the first Lyon's district near 16 h. It was raining and we were just between 30 and 40 persons. We put music near 18 h when the sun came back. Near 19h, 70 at 80 were together. We finished at 21 h and we cleaned the park. More and less 200 cannabinophiles passed to support this plant. Our slogan was : "with prohibition, no prevention (safety)". The police stayed far and they didn't come. A local paper, spoke our gathering.

Next year, we try to do something more important. It will be an election year in France.

Reagan's war on cannabis Edit

Return to top. See: U.S. Drug War. Republicans lead.

2015. The 70th anniversary of victory over fascism. The 35th anniversary of Reagan's war on cannabis.

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 [90]: "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."
See quote at 1 minute 7 seconds into this video clip narrated by Woody Harrelson.

Cost of drug warEdit

Return to top.

See: Drug war causes high U.S. incarceration rate. See: Drug war charts and maps. See: cannabis arrests.
See article: Drug war cost charts, infographics, and links.


The majority of people incarcerated in prisons and jails in the USA are in due to drug-related offenses, crimes to get money for drugs, or drug-related parole or probation violations. Wikipedia: Drug-related crime. The number of inmates in the USA has increased almost 5 times over since 1980. The USA has the highest incarceration rate of any nation b c (except for the tiny country of the Seychelles). Compare incarceration rates worldwide. The cost of the U.S. drug war is at least 1.5 trillion dollars. Cannabis is safer! Share link.
