Compare to Iran: Woman gets 12-year sentence for cartoons [96].

Where have all the burglars gone? 23. In contrast to GOP and NRA mass incarceration this is lowering crime rates in countries with far lower incarceration rates.

Reagan's war on cannabis[edit]

Return to top. See: U.S. Drug War. Republicans lead.

2015. The 70th anniversary of victory over fascism. The 35th anniversary of Reagan's war on cannabis.

Reagan's war on cannabis is where the U.S. incarceration nation began.

Drug war + Trickle-down Reaganomics, = mass incarceration and mass control.
Ronald Reagan, 1980 campaign speech [171]: "Leading medical researchers are coming to the conclusion that marijuana, pot, grass, whatever you want to call it, is probably the most dangerous drug in the United States, and we haven't begun to find out all of the ill effects, but they are permanent ill effects. The loss of memory for example."
