War on Drugs or War on People? : A Resource Book for the Debate
by Steve Otto; Paperback
Book Description
A chilling book, Otto exposes government corruption in their war on drugs: from the idiocy of outrageous prison terms for small amounts of pot, to minimal time for selling or possessing crack. Otto argues that the war on drugs is more of a war on people in an effort to stifle dissent and control personal actions in a draconian state, as seen in his confrontation with major politicians who accept kickbacks from drug overlords.
About the Author
Otto is a fulltime freelance writer and part-time reporter for the Cheney times-Sentinel in Kansas. He took his degree in journalism from Wichita State University.

More great big laughs about the (ha ha ha) "War on Drugs" where parts of the government bring in the drugs and then other parts of the government fight the drugs. Truly hilarious, except for, as ex-DEA agent Levine points out in the dedication of his book, "law enforcement officers who have died trying to take drugs off the street".
