Jeff Sessions’s terrible truth about drugs is a lie

“‘Our nation needs to say clearly once again that using drugs will destroy your life,’ Attorney General Jeff Sessions declared last week. The main problem with that message: It isn’t true. Yes, using drugs, both legal and illegal ones, can destroy your life, but typically it doesn’t. By arguing that drug education should proceed from a false premise, Sessions reminds us what was wrong with the Just Say No propaganda he would like to revive.” (03/22/17)
