Drug Legalization as Racial Justice

With no War on Drugs there would be, within one generation, no "black problem" in the United States, says The New Republic, echoing England's increasingly liberal drugs policies.

The end of the War on Drugs is, in fact, what all people genuinely concerned with black uplift should be focused on. The black malaise in the U.S. is currently like a card house; the Drug War is a single card which, if pulled out, would collapse the whole thing. That is neither an exaggeration nor an oversimplification. It comes down to this: If there were no way to sell drugs on the street at a markup, then young black men who drift into this route would instead have to get legal work. They would.
