Vermont US Senator Leahy voted for a war on you, by allowing the US Military to secretly arrest, detain, torture, and maybe even kill you. We know what side Leahy is on. Should Leahy continue to draw pay and sit in his Senate seat if he has turned over his authority to DHS, the TSA, military, and the Pentagon? Vermont US Senator Bernie Sanders was one of 7 of 100 US Senators who voted against that very same bill. We know what side he is on.

I don't think anyone should even try drugs.

I do think that the Police State abuse of those who do drugs is worse than the perceived drug problem.

The US Government supplies most of the hard drugs. So use of their products mean they take all your property and you go to prison. So, that is why I am for legalization of all drugs. If you hate what the US Government is doing, try to reduce the cocaine and heroin used, it will cut off the funding for wars, citizen imprisonment for political excuses, torture, official murder-for-hire, and their black operations.

We need the police in the US not treat us like enemy combatants in a war zone. 

Top Secret America links to video and more, tells the story in depth.

[This] is my message to Leahy and Sanders, and to all elected officials in the US.

In this scene from "The War on Weed," correspondent Christof Putzel hits the streets of New York City with NYC Resistance, an underground videographer who films some of the 600,000 "stop and frisk" searches performed by the NYPD each year. Ninety percent of those who are stopped are black and Latino, and while across the country in Seattle many are allowed to openly smoke marijuana, in New York there are far harsher consequences -- and questionable tactics being used by authorities.

"Vanguard" is Current TV's no-limits documentary series whose award-winning correspondents put themselves in extraordinary situations to immerse viewers in global issues that have a large social significance. Unlike sound-bite driven reporting, the show's correspondents, Adam Yamaguchi, Christof Putzel and Mariana van Zeller, serve as trusted guides who take viewers on in-depth real life adventures in pursuit of some of the world's most important stories.
