This conference was co-sponsored by students at Spelman College, Morehouse College in Atlanta, and the Spelhouse National Action Network and was held at Spelman College on September 20, 2018. This was the third Historically Black College and University (HBCU) at which the Future of Freedom Foundation has held drug-war conferences. The previous two were Morgan State University in Baltimore and the Florida A&M University School of Law in Orlando. We also have held one of our drug-war conferences at the University of Texas. The drug war has been one of the most immoral and destructive government programs in U.S. history, much more so than even Prohibition. Not only has it destroyed American society with such things as mandatory-minimum sentences, arbitrary and capricious searches and seizures, asset-forfeiture laws, no-knock raids, mass incarceration, illegal spying and surveillance, it has also been the most racist government program since segregation.
