The Green Quote: Sting Says War On Drugs Robs Money From Pollution Prevention

“For years, the Drug War has been used as a pretext to lock people in prison for exorbitant lengths of time — people whose “crimes” never hurt another human being, people who already lived at the margins of society, whose voices were the faintest and whose power was the least.

“Civil liberties have been trampled. Law enforcement has been militarized. Literally hundreds of billions of dollars — dollars denied to urgent problems ranging from poverty to pollution — have been spent. People who do need help with drugs have been treated as criminals instead. Meanwhile, resources to fight genuine crime — violent crime — have been significantly diminished.

“Everyone knows the War on Drugs has failed. It’s time to step out of our comfort zones, acknowledge the truth — and challenge our leaders … and ourselves … to change.”

Sting discussing his recent partnership with Drug Policy Alliance — an organization that focuses on “reducing the harm drugs cause rather than obsessively and pointlessly attempting to ban them” — on the Huffington Post.  What do you think about Sting’s opinions? Chime in and share your thoughts!
