Bernie Sanders Gains Popularity with Plans for Prison & Drug War Reform

Bernie Sanders Announces Plans for Prison & Drug War Reform

Bernie Sanders’ approval rating is rising, thanks in no small part to his platforms to outlaw for-profit prisons and reform drug laws nationwide, ending the racial and judicial injustice of the decades-long War on Drugs.

At a campaign rally in Nevada Tuesday, Sanders addressed a crowd of more than 4,000 supporters about the relation between private prisons and drug law reform.
