I'd like to believe that logic and intelligent thinking will prevail in the "war on drugs" but greed and self interest seem to prevail each time an opportunity for change comes along. Private prisons who profit from the war on drugs will do everything in their power to keep things the way they are. Many police departments fear losing parts of their funding and even the DEA profits by receiving just over one U.S. dollar for each marijuana plant they destroy (even though nearly all of those plants are the male hemp plant and not the female marijuana plant). Worst of all is the fact that so many people blindly accept the propaganda against marijuana from these organizations rather than seeking out facts on their own and coming to their own conclusion. Online polls always show a majority support for legalizing marijuana but those apparently aren't the same people who vote on election day.

From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
