RE: "Ending the War on Drugs"
Just like any other business endeavor (legal or illegal), as long as a steady supply of customers exists to make the sale of illicit drugs, profitable, there is very little that any government official/agency can do to stop drug trafficking, illicit drug sales or use, etc., etc.
Furthermore, crying about going to prison for committing a criminal act that he or she truly committed is useless.
The best weapon against illicit drug use is to not be a user or engage in illicit drug dealing/trafficking in the first place.
The best tool, advice, or constructive tactic to keep from going to jail/prison is to be a law abiding citizen. If any illegal activity takes place just make sure that it is anyone else but you.
The only individuals from within the Black community that I have sympathy for, engage in defending, or speaking in behalf of are any truly innocent Black men or women falsely accused, or condemning any lawyer, or elected official who fails to be competent in using his or her influence to protect the Constitutional rights of the innocent.
But Oh well, there are numerous Black attorneys and other misguided individuals out there who spend more time advising the truly innocent to "plead no contest" than insisting on being ethical and competent in the interest of protecting the Constitutional rights of the law abiding and innocent.

.....as usual, talk but no proof that I hate the Black race, that the material I've posted in unfounded, etc., etc. With or without my voice, my input, dysfunctional U.S. born Black men and women who fit the description pretty much trash his or her own reputation , future, and/or a larger scale the U.S. born segment of the Black community.
...and it is pointless to even defend such an individual, or set of misfit individuals.

Also, I think African Americans should defend African Americans/Ourselves from racist stereotypes, racist propaganda and the centuries old psych game of maligning our people, even when it is coming from another Black person.
I always thought of AA.org as a Think Tank of sorts for African Americans, and not a place for people to come only to spread hatred, self-hatred and racist stereotypical views.

US Constitution, Article 2, Section 2:
"The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment."
Your buddy, President Barack Obama to whom, possibly a lot of you voted for is also the Chief executive.
US Constitution, Article. II., Section. 1.
The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice President, chosen for the same Term, be elected, as follows:
......Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:--"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
Since President Barack "the Magic Negro" Obama and his appointee U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder have held office there have been more un-Constitutional infractions against U.S. citizens, more freedoms for illegal aliens, and you can forget Constitutional protections for any U.S. born descendant of slavery, because Barack Obama could care less, the unemployment rate of Black men and women is the highest it has ever been, more Drone strikes than ever, U.S. soldiers....U.S. Veterans are more vulnerable than during any previous U.S. President, or Presidential Administration.
After all, more than any other U.S. President, President Barack Obama is more likely to be used, because as it stands Barack Obama will to throw anyone under the bus to promote himself, to make history to be the first Black President, to keep from being held accountable for unethical, criminal, illegal, un-Constitutional, inhumane, and treasonous decisions he has made, or will make.
If former President George Bush were to give the order commit all the inhumane things in Sub-Sahara Africa that have occurred during President Barack Obama's tenure, U.S. born Black men and women would have been marching on the White House, protesting, condemning the President, you name it.
THE JOB OF A CONGRESSMAN
“There are cases where an individual has been wrongfully treated by his government and about the only way, unless the individual resorts tocourt, and even in some cases the courts are not able to give proper relief, the only area or avenue open to the individual is through his representative. When you find a bona fide error has been made, I suggest that you make a maximum effort to remedy it. This I feel is a vital and important function of those of us in the House of Representatives”.
