I even ended up graduating high school with a 4.0 GPA. So, what happened?I tore...

The War on Drugs: The ‘root’ of all evil.

The “War on Drugs” technically started in the 1870s when the federal government outlawed opium bars in their attempted resolution to the influx of Asian-American population (Drug Policy. “A Brief History of the Drug War.” 2014. drugpolicy.org/new-solutions-drug-policy/brief-history-drug-war). According to a Stanford University study, “The Harrison Narcotics Act, passed in 1914, was the United States first ...
