The War on Drugs is about mass incarceration. It’s about destroying the activist community. It’s about destroying the black community. But it was never about the drugs themselves–unless you mean the drugs that were consistently pumped into this country under CIA cover. Yet Attorney General Jeff Sessions is insistent on starting a new drug war, in spite of the fact it has had a profoundly negative impact on our society, from justifying the need for military weapons for local police, to filling our prisons with low-level offenders serving ridiculous sentences for the mere possession of drugs. And while the drug war continues to have repercussions for our American justice system, it gets little play in our mainstream media. Lee Camp reveals why the recent admissions from officials in the Reagan and Nixon administrations about the real reasons behind the drug war should sounding off way more alarm bells than it has.

Lee Camp is the host and head writer of the popular comedy news TV show Redacted Tonight with Lee Camp on RT America. The show also features correspondents John F. O’Donnell, Carlos Delgado, Naomi Karavani, and Phillip Chang. Salon.com said, "The finest TV satire thus far this election season has come from the Nightly Show and Lee Camp on Redacted Tonight." The show has also won a 2016 Telly Award for their live stand-up comedy special in New York City. George Carlin's daughter Kelly said Camp was one of only a handful keeping her father's torch lit. Camp is a former writer for The Onion and for Huffington Post Comedy. He created and starred in the viral YouTube show Moment of Clarity that was seen by millions, and he's performed stand-up comedy in a dozen countries and every state in the US. He has also been featured on Comedy Central, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, MTV, FOX & Showtime. Many know him from the viral clip of him on Fox News calling a “parade of propaganda and a festival of ignorance.”
