This isn't just going to be a War on Drugs. This is going to be a war on crime. Basically they're telling every prosecutor in the USA to go tough on charges in every case. So much for plea deals.
Donald Trump did say on the campaign trail he was going to get tough on crime and "bring the rule of law and order back to the United States". I'm guessing this is the first phase.
One day, Americans will look back at how the Police State got started, and look back whistfully to a time when Barack Obama said "let's try and help people, rather than just throwing the book at them".

I think it would be great if liberals, in an effort to thwart Trump, started a legalization drive. I think enough republicans would joine in. Problem solved.

Jeff Sessions Just Fired The First Shot In Trump's War On Drugs.
Read my lips;
Sessions is nothing more than an aged carbunkle on the ass of Amerikkkan politiks!
In the case of the failed 'drug war' and it's resurrection by Sessions, he is a nasty, racist, ignorant wheezing old snail gonna puff his chest and hold up traffic on the 101, and will shortly be thoroughly flattened and left by the side of the road!
Don't eBay your new pipes just yet! *__-
He gonna get K-Lined??
or is he the tip of the mushroom, that has links everywhere... I honestly thought things were changing when it came to this, but I'm getting the sad and scary impression that it is simply subterfuge..

I voted for Trump.
I am also for legalization.
(Now that we have that out of the way)
Cities like Chicago, Baltimore, etc are rife with crime, increased homicides.
One of Trumps campaign promises was to do something about it.
Since drugs are the cornerstone of much of gang/criminal activity, it would be a necessary focus.
