SEATTLE — At a national forum to declare war on the “War On Drugs,”, Rev. Jesse Jackson said the “War On Drugs” is “government-sponsored-terrorism.

The Seattle Medium reports:

“This is a crime against humanity. War on drugs is a war on Black and Brown and must be challenged by the highest levels of our government in the war for justice,” said the Rev. Jesse L. Jackson Sr., keynote speaker at a forum commemorating the 40th anniversary of the “War on Drugs.”

“This is government-sponsored terrorism,” Jackson said to applause in the packed room at the National Press Club. “It raised the price on Black existence; it is an attack on the Black family; it has destroyed a generation. Those who are the least users have paid the most price because of race; those with money and attorneys have paid the least price. Those without attorneys remain behind bars today.”
