Incarcerex: This Video Says it all

If a picture is worth a thousand words, this video from the Drug Policy Alliance is worth a million. This is one of the best videos I have ever seem on the drug war and its insanity. If you watch closely there is a scene with a man in a wheelchair with cuffs next to a pillar with the words "25 Years." This is a wry reference to Richard Paey, a wheelchair-bound, Harvard-trained lawyer with severe chronic pain who was convicted in Florida of allegedly forging prescriptions for pain medicine and sentenced to a staggering 25 years in prison.
