This is from David Simon, the guy who wrote The Wire, and Homicide:
Your work shows such wisdom on the drug epidemic on a macro level. What is your perspective on a micro level? What can families do to combat the influence of drugs and violence?

All of us as citizens can nullify any jury on which we are asked to serve if the defendant is charged with a non-violent drug offense. The sooner we refuse service of this destructive and brutalizing drug war -- which is, in effect, a war on our poor -- the sooner we might free law enforcement to do its actual job. If you are picked for a jury and it is a drug case only, without overt acts of violence, vote to acquit regardless of the evidentiary material.
