Race, Women and Prison. Thank you for posting this. I’m glad to see some stats come out to show that the War on Drugs is a War on people with a disease. Addiction is color blind. Mental issues that lead to drug addiction like ADHD, can’t see the color of a person’s skin. Poverty does play a factor in who goes to prison and who gets a slap on the hand but times have changed. It is all about the 99% conviction ratio in the D.A.’s office to get elected these days. We need more smart on crime and that should start with sending people to prison who steal votes, steal money and people who create the laws to benefit themselves while pointing the finger and yelling criminal to those in poverty of every color.
