The War on Drugs is a Failure – Autotuned by The Gregory Brothers

The War on Drugs is a Failure – Autotuned by The Gregory Brothers:
To celebrate 4-20, A bi-partisan panel of politicians somehow come to a unanimous agreement that The War on Drugs is totally effed up. Guest Starring Kevin Smith & Jason Mewes:

Lyrics below:
We need to repeal the whole war on drugs

It isn’t working

We don’t have to have more courts and more prisons

This has to change

This has to change
Prohibition didn’t work

Prohibition on drugs doesn’t work

We have spent over 400 billion dollars

It’s a waste of money
We need to come to our senses

Let’s put down the guns and unclench the fists

We need to come to our senses

Yeah, we don’t treat alcoholics like this

We need to come to our senses

Prohibition failing harder than 1926

We need to come to our senses

We don’t treat alcoholics like this
Too many people doin’ time

Somebody tell me – when did recreation become a crime?

It’s bright-eyed kids we’re sendin into prison

They go in as superheroes and come out supervillains
Could have had more Einsteins, more Magellans,

But we made a thousand Al Capone level felons.

Take out a dealer and ten more appear

So let’s ban curing cancer, we’ll cure it within a year.
We need to come to our senses
Of 50,000 arrests, 82% were black and hispanic

These arrests stigmatize, they criminalize

Making it harder to find a job

Making it harder to get into school

Making it harder to turn their lives around

It must end and it must end now
The war on drugs, while well-intentioned, has been a failure

We’re warehousing addicted people every day in state prisons

Giving them no treatment, sending them back on the street

And wondering why they don’t get better

Why they commit crimes again

Well, they commit crimes to support their addiction
The war on drugs is a failure

Put down the guns and unclench the fists

The war on drugs is a failure

We don’t treat alcoholics like this

The war on drugs is a failure

Prohibition’s failing more than in 1926

The war on drugs is a failure

We don’t treat alcoholics like this
The cops got better things to do anyway

Like stop real crimes instead of wasting time

Chasing that mary jane

Stoned people don’t start fights

No, they don’t

Stoned people don’t rob banks

Not even close

The worst thing stoned people do

Is steal their roommate’s oreos

And that’s a misdemeanor at most

A misdemeanor at most

A misdemeanor at most
