Societal rot is a choice.

We would appreciate your donation.


Does it make sense to reverse commonsense laws that made it a felony to possess hard drugs and instead make possession a misdemeanor that rarely gets prosecuted?

And the results are devastating. 

Zombies. Dead people. Filth.

Societal rot is a choice.
