Default ACLU petition: Jeff Sessions is wrong about the War on Drugs

To Attorney General Jeff Sessions:

Do not return to the unnecessarily cruel sentencing policies of years past. Doubling down on the failed War on Drugs takes our country backward by decades. From the halls of state legislatures to the ballot box, the American people have said with a clear voice they want commonsense sentencing policy reform – and that the policies you have proposed are anything but sensible.

Petition gained about 14k signatures yesterday. We have made such great strides in awareness regarding the failings of harsh sentencing, it would be tragic to backslide this way.
