The War on Drugs and Incarceration in America

On Apri 2nd this year Time published what I thought is a particularly important article by Fareed Zakaria. In it he points out that the consequences of the US “war on drugs” is reaching truly catastrophic proportions. This is nothing new. I wrote to Tory MP Oliver Letwin about it some 8 years years ago when the US “correctional supervision” rate had reached 2 million. It has now reached 6 million.
