How did you come up with that conclusion?

Shep- sorry for the late reply, but I was at a toilet brush convention in Madison. I don't know this man's history, just reading from this article. To answer your question: I don't believe in the war on drugs. It's a failed policy and it's one of the reasons if not the biggest reason why the homicide rate in this country is so high. Cops were not originally instated to prosecute drug crimes they were used to fight violent crimes. Again, he could have been a past violent offender, for which he will be prosecuted accordingly, but to put on his record selling a product people want that is against the law because a retarded past president decided to wage a war on mortality?
