Cory Booker: Drug war 'represents big overgrown government at its worst'

Cory Booker used the site Reddit to discuss his issues with America’s war on drugs. According to the Huffington Post, Booker called it “big overgrown government at it’s worst.” This is not the first time Booker has discussed his stance on drugs. In May, Booker tweeted his support for medical marijuana.

Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker took to Reddit Sunday to criticize the War on Drugs, saying it was ineffective and “represents big overgrown government at its worst.”

“The so called War on Drugs has not succeeded in making significant reductions in drug use, drug arrests or violence,” the Democrat wrote during the Reddit “ask me anything” chat. “We are pouring huge amounts of our public resources into this current effort that are bleeding our public treasury and unnecessarily undermining human potential.”

Booker then called drug arrests a “game.”
