Arrest of 94-year-old Veteran for Felony Marijuana Charges Highlights Absurdity of Drug War

94-year-old-vet-arrested-for-pot

The War on Drugs may have reached its pinnacle of absurdity when 94-year-old World War II veteran Douglas Ponischil was arrested for felony marijuana charges earlier this year.  The pot had been mailed to his home on someone else’s behalf, and law enforcement swept him up with no further investigation.

The case against Mr. Ponischil, who miraculously survived a Nazi U-Boat attack, was dismissed on June 30 after months of negotiating with prosecutors by attorney Christopher Connelly.

Only in a thoroughly immoral and baseless system of prohibition can something like this happen.  What began in the late 1970s as a crusade against “the devil’s candy” is now well-known as a miserable failure.  That is, unless you are interested in giving the State tremendous power and billions of dollars in civil asset forfeiture.  The shell of purported righteousness has fallen away from the War on Drugs to reveal its sickly core.

An analysis released five days ago by the Pew Charitable Trusts confirmed the ineffectiveness and waste of the drug war.  The report, titled “Federal Drug Sentencing Laws Bring High Cost, Low Return,” describes how mass incarceration, mandatory minimums, and billions of dollars per year have done nothing to curb drug use or supply, while caging tens of thousands for minor roles in trafficking.

The stated goals of the drug war, misguided as they are, have never been met.  Even the decreased crime rate since the 1990s has virtually nothing to do with it.

“The National Research Council concluded in a 2014 report that mandatory minimum sentences for drug and other offenders “have few if any deterrent effects.” Even if street-level drug dealers are apprehended and incarcerated, such offenders are easily replaced, ensuring that drug trafficking can continue, researchers say.

…research credits the increased incarceration of drug offenders with only a 1 to 3 percent decline in the combined violent and property crime rate. “It is unlikely that the dramatic increase in drug imprisonment was cost- effective,” one study concluded in 2004.”

Recidivism, or the relapse into criminal behavior, has remained unchanged.  One of the main goals of criminal justice is to reduce recidivism.

“Of the more than 20,000 federal drug offenders who concluded periods of post-release community supervision  in 2012 (the latest year for which statistics are available), 29 percent either committed new crimes or violated the conditions of their release.  This proportion has changed little since the mid-1980s, when sentences and time served began increasing sharply.

Conversely, targeted reductions in prison terms for certain federal drug offenders have not led to higher recidivism rates.”

While government has increased spending dramatically to cage people for possessing drugs or being involved in the trade, supply has increased, prices have declined, and potency has increased.

“From 1980 to 2013, federal prison spending increased 595 percent, from $970 million to more than $6.7 billion in inflation-adjusted dollars.19 Taxpayers spent almost as much on federal prisons in 2013 as they paid to fund the entire U.S. Justice Department—including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and all U.S. attorneys—in 1980, after adjusting for inflation.”

The obsessive rise in spending coincided with sharp increases in sentence lengths and near disappearance of probation, swelling the federal prison population to nearly 800 percent higher in 2013 than it was in 1980.  More than a quarter of drug offenders are “mules” representing the lowest-level trafficking role, and nearly a fifth were street-level dealers selling an ounce or less to users.

As we have described before, drug offenses are victimless crimes.  This is highlighted by the fact that in 2014, less than 1% of drug cases featured violence or threats of violence, and only 16% of federal drug convictions involved a weapon.

There is nowhere for Drug War proponents to hide anymore.  There is literally nothing they can use to support the case for continuing this crusade.

When Mr. Ponischil was floating at sea for days during World War II, hoping that the government he valiantly served would rescue him after the Nazi U-Boat attack, he never imagined that same government would be hauling him to prison decades later for inadvertently receiving a dried plant in the mail.

    • It’s fucking disrespectfull, non lethal substances should never have been criminalized

    • is bleach criminalized?

    • It was never about keeping us safe and always about making them money and subjugating us

    • Good point, many people die every year from bleach and Tylenol Advil Aleve , stuff any stupid kid could buy from the store , no questions asked.

    • I fail to see how criminal law has anything to do with military action. I had no authority to enforce criminal law, only rules of engagement with hostile military forces, and maybe pirates but that never became an issue.

    • Well I don’t care what you think THE LAW IS THE LAW thats why this country is so screwed up cause morons like you don’t follow the law

    • No Steve, this country is screwed up because people like you think you need to follow every rule passed down by your benevolent slave masters, then elect new masters to pass even more laws to criminalize even more people. #BlindSheep

    • face it steve you’re a dumbass, “the law is the law”, you sound like Judge Dredd

    • Should we have kept following Jim Crow laws? Or maybe prohibition laws too? Or maybe forced conscription into the armed services, that was “the law” too? #YouMightBeaStatist

    • Well than fight to change the law but till than follow the law I’m not saying it’s right or wrong but we can’t have every one picking and choosing with laws they like or feel like obeying than it will be really good uh asswipe

    • Obviously a troll, and not even a clever one.

    • No I just don’t agree with idiots thats all

    • Name calling in the absence of a rational argument is a pure sign of ignorance and cognitive dissonance.

    • Smoke weed everyday

    • Well charlie I’m just saying what has been said to me I don’t care if you want to smoke dope all the time your choice but don’t cry when you get caught

    • Cops don’t know shit unless someone report aka the snitch and fuck the police

    • Next time you need help call your dealer Zach

    • I’m sure if they outlawed the Confederate flag you’d be singing a different tune.

    • I bet when they were trying to outlaw the Confederate flag you were all for stopping them and changing that law if they passed it do you go drinking because we ended that prohibition as well by your thought process because you buy alcohol and because it was once illegal you’re just as guilty we’re trying to end the prohibition on cannabis you do realize that the only reason why it carries the name marijuana is so the medical professionals of the day wouldn’t recognize they were talking about cannabis “marijuana” is actually a slang term for a wild Mexican tobacco and the biggest selling point to making it illegal was that it caused black man to rape white women and cause white women to sleep with black men which is both complete f****** b******* and just as racist as it is classist

    • Well they are trying sir but we fight the fight and since it’s protected by a act of congress it will be ok never said I agree or disagree with the law just saying it’s the law if you don’t like it fight to get it changed

    • “I’m just saying what was said to me” = “I’m just blindly repeating statist rhetoric without actually thinking about the implications”

    • This is what Steve sounds like.

    • Shit if i was living in segregation time I would of find the anti segregation people of black and white and beat jim crow silly

    • It is the same for everyone….and its fucking stupid….if u don’t like it don’t smoke it…..its a fucking plant that has a great deal of benefits from pain relief to paper products…..the fact that our government can put you in a cage for posessing a plant is absurd….and you Steve are part of our country’s problem

    • Steve L Chronister, you remind me of a stupid cop…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRil4x5hM1w

    • well david it’s people like you that don’t follow the law thats the problem think your bigger than the law thats the problem oh and nice earring lol

    • You think the law is a physical entity that can actually get offended if you don’t follow it we are not morally obligated to follow unjust laws as stated in the Constitution

    • Steve needs to see this quote by Thomas Jefferson. “If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so.” The law is not our friend. The law imposes on our inalienable rights. And That. Is. Wrong. We are born free and so we shall be. What is freedom if you let someone take it from you? Its wasted. Thats what it is.

    • We all, Steve, are bigger than the law. Thats the thing. What right does any being on this planet have to take away your right to do what you want in your own peaceful space? None. No one should dictate what you can and cannot do when you are not affecting any one else. That is W.R.O.N.G. Do not be a slave. Do not be compliant to an unjust law. Please be free. Thats how it is supposed to be.

    • Why is the law unjust ron just cause a few people think they should be able to grow or smoke pot don’t make it unjust

    • Fight to have the law changed than it will be as alright but as it is it’s against the law

    • Educate the people about jury nullification.

    • This exactly what our government wants….blind stupid people like Steve who obey and follow….drink some more kool aid Steve

    • That’s right Steve the law is the law, the problem is politicians, judges, lawyers , and police don’t respect the law. The constitution is the law not rules made up by politicians. The drug rules masquerading as law where originally based on lies to line the pockets of corrupt politicians, law has to be based on truth. Politicians lie, just because they tell you it’s law doesn’t mean it is.

    • If this old man ends up in court you won’t find any victim in the court, the definition of a crime is you must have a victim. What are the police going to charge him with possessing nature in the pursuit of life, health, and happiness and causing no harm ? Show me his crime other than not obeying an unlawful rule.

    • Let’s not forget this man is a veteran and fought for us….and this is what he has to deal with….

    • Well, this is why people are informing each other… and besides, any law that’s unconstitutional (in principle) is not a LAW, and the constitution specifically tasks every citizen to do whatever is in their power and within their rights to resist it and change it.

In fact I support the troops more than you because I question and try to speak out on why there even being sent to other countries instead of blindly accepting orders

    • I stand corrected, this is fun

    • Yea Chris Kyle? Guy was a liar and mass murder and terrorist, how is invading and occupying another country defending our country

    • It is I knew you’d like it, deep down I know you have to question some of this shit or otherwise you’ve really been brainwashed. I was unaware your such a Obama supporter also, will it be better or worse when you work for Hilary Clinton or Jeb bush, just curious

    • In the words of Rick Flair “WOOOOOOOO”

    • Really tho you should check out how you’ll get treated when your no longer useful for them, it doesn’t scare you there’s over 50,000 homeless veterans and more veteran suicide deaths than vets killed in action? This an honest question in all seriousness

    • Hahaha our troops don’t get the support they deserve or are entitled to, also you can keep your taxes I’ve worked my ass off for everything o own, nice try tho cupcake

    • That’s great, enjoy my tax dollars paying for everything you have in the future and you might wanna check out how your employees treat veterans who come back after wars and die homeless waiting to see the doctor but I’m sure your not worried about that. In fact I support the troops more than you because I question and try to speak out on why there even being sent to other countries instead of blindly accepting orders

    • I stand corrected, this is fun

    • Yea Chris Kyle? Guy was a liar and mass murder and terrorist, how is invading and occupying another country defending our country

    • It is I knew you’d like it, deep down I know you have to question some of this shit or otherwise you’ve really been brainwashed. I was unaware your such a Obama supporter also, will it be better or worse when you work for Hilary Clinton or Jeb bush, just curious

    • In the words of Rick Flair “WOOOOOOOO”

    • Really tho you should check out how you’ll get treated when your no longer useful for them, it doesn’t scare you there’s over 50,000 homeless veterans and more veteran suicide deaths than vets killed in action? This an honest question in all seriousness

    • Hahaha our troops don’t get the support they deserve or are entitled to, also you can keep your taxes I’ve worked my ass off for everything o own, nice try tho cupcake

    • Nah I absolutely agree it fuxked up but it dosent scare me. I know exactly what I signed up for

    • Like it’s literally outrageous how the VA treats troops, you should read Winter Solider, I feel like you’d like that book– this is me not being sarcastic or anything the books right up.your alley

    • Yea that’s cool and everything but if and when you join you’ll be paid by other hard working tax dollars for your paycheck kinda like people on welfare.. Also construction workers, plumbers, garbage men all other everyday workers who without them our day to day lives would not be possible get no recognition support they deserve why? Are cop and military lives more valuable than hard working people. I’m telling you man you should look into this shit more these people don’t give a fuck about you and just use you for their gains, I’d rather not see that happen to you, but I’ll check the book out and good luck honestly I hope it works out for you

  • He was a Veteran for 94 years wow that’s a long time.

    • The gentleman is 94, ..
      It is now 2015 so for simplicity he was born 1920. WWII ended 1945 making his veteran status about 70yrs, and anyone else who served in that war

    • I was being sarcastic, sorry Bruce.

    • Oh, fur sure, can never be to certain these days with all the airheads mindlessly reading headlines with no intellect or investigative skills

    • I agree with you Bruce, I was just making an observation, I know what the headline meant, I was being a smart ass I guess, and I apologize. No disrespect. My grandfather was a veteran of the Korean War.

    • Lol, I can see the smart-assery in the comment after-the-fact. I have received zero disrespect from this.my grandfather was also in Korea and father in Nam.I just wanted to help out with the math and deductive reasoning. Now I see this as an opportunity to encourage the stifling of misinformation. A good story has a lot added in comments now if only everyone with a sense of understanding would resort to info in an articles comments to those relating to the article and leave the shenanigans to their personal page
      ( I’m no admin) this movement to wake our sleeping misimformed masses to the insanity this government is involved with may move quicker

  • Americans are waking up to the real aroma of freedom. Its not about the herb,ganja,marijauna or pot, its not about the law…..its about your absolute liberties and not your basic liberties, there is a difference. Your basic rights are governed and controlled by the law, your absolute right is doing whatever you want without infringing your actions and words on other people. This mans absolute rights have been violated. All of you who think the law applies……go get a decent fucken education.

  • An abomination…. No justice involved.

  • as long as man is ruling this system of things there will be no peace what so ever

  • THATS USA AMERICA, FIGHT FOR YOUR COUNTRY AND YOU ARE NOTHING TO THE US GOVERNMENT AFTERWARDS!!! SOB”s !

  • All drug laws are insanity!

  • The law is a ass.

  • The laws are based on lies and pure corruption, we all know that. Big pharma, big oil and the banksters make the laws. Politicians are only following a script. STEVE, please do not post. You are smart enough or know ANYTHING. True story. Beat it. The laws are bullshit.

  • I’m on the front line of the war! I am suspected of being involved with drugs because of acquaintances I talk to. Everyday there is a task force that follows me to work and everywhere I go. The DEA task force is who it is. They involve police, military personnel, military equipment ( drones) and volunteer neighborhood crime watch! So much money and time wasted on getting nothing or at best a misdemeanor! Their priorities are fucked up!!!

  • No way.

  • Steve L Chronister is a joke. Inbred mullet headed yahoo confederate idiot.

  • Specially for a Veteran that fought for our country….you know SUPPORT our troops aint just a publicity BS to support the current active ones but those that served our country before doesn’t matter if they lost or won it is the twisted sick fuck view of corrupt politicians that blindfold the rest of you fucking idiots to look down on these retired folks as nothing more than moochers you all make me sick to my stomach with your god forsaken hypocrisy.

  • Yes, ridiculous. Think we all know who the authors of that law are. No test, no reason. Ah, just put the blacks in jail!

    • This.

    • I go through 1k a day training. 6k is a weeks for of practice for me

    • Who in the fuck goes through 1k rounds per day a compulsive liar or someone shooting a mark48? Are you fucking retarded? Who the fuck says 6k rounds is not a lot? Have you checked your numbers ever? I see neither of you have any fucking clue what in the fuck you are fucking going on about. I am from Texas I served in the military in combat and done my dirt. What does feel like to be too stupid to be sentient? 6k rounds is fucking plenty unless you are a doomsday prepper.

    • Nah doc hes got that m134 duh!!! give it like a 10sec burst and your good..

    • they should add a box for criminals to check when they buy ammo, it would do as much as the gunfree zones

    • I thought Adam lanza did oh wait I’m getting my false flag gun control fakery mixed up oops sorry……carry on

    • If you continuously average 5 shots a minute it will take 1200 minutes or 20 hours a day. Unless you are talking semi-automatic. If you fire one shot every 3 seconds (20 shots a minute) then it will take 300 minutes or 5 hours. But that is 6,000 rounds and you say you use 1,000 a day. So you are saying that you spend almost a solid hour every day firing off 3 shots per second (including reloading time)?

    • Because you want the government controlling more things like the meanings of defense.

    • This argument is about as relevant to the discussion as the last three squares of toilet paper on a roll at a Chinese buffet.

    • 10 mags is 300 rounds. Reload 3 times that’s 900. And no I use a plain Jane ak and a glock. You have never run a training course so sit your call of duty bitch ass down.

    • Hahaha I have never run a training course hahahahahahahaha

    • Ya think he would be got that when I called you doc

    • Nah brah way too stupid. I wonder if guys like this follow operator as fuck and gruntworks. Having never done a god damn thing in the military except “think” about signing up. Oh well let the guy say he uses a thousand rounds a day pffffft. Where do you get the fucking money for 1000 7.62 rounds a day. Wait you don’t.

    • Are you a racist? You sure sound like a racist.

    • Good point sheep man we should definitely give them more control over our lives

    • 100 sharpened pencils can be used to create a spike pit aswell I guess since the government is slowing the production of meth by limiting the sale of sudafed we may as well give them rights over pencil sales…

    • Yea u cant blame weed for that it does next to nothing especially if ur experienced they did a study on CNN Weeds and it was very interesting people who where new to pot had difficulties driving normal where those with experience with it drove fine some cases better it all comes down to self control alcohol needs it two not to mention comparing the side effects of both ur 100x more likely to crash on alcohol then weed. I am sorry to hear about ur loss

    • I’ve read studies done in Australia. There’s a positive correlation between smoking and a tenfold increase in chances to be involved in an accident with injury. Of course, this is nowhere near the more than one-hundredfold increase when drinking– but, people do need to realize that it’s not totally safe. (I found the article on a peer review website; might have been Lexi-Nexus or one of them used by my college at the time. I would assume that a decent search on Google Scholar would turn the article up)

    • For some reason I was unable to see the other comments before posting… I’m happy to see that the 100x number I cited was mirrored in the television citing provided by Broseph.

    • I was at the University of Waterloo back in the 80s when they did a study on the effects of marijuana on driving. It showed people drove slightly better during the day but slightly worse at night. In both cases the difference was determined to be negligible.

    • Lol, then he wasn’t high on just weed

    • It only takes a split second distraction at the wrong time to have an accident. Perhaps he would have had it with or without pot. The same goes for all accidents that they attribute to drugs and alcohol. No doubt those could be contributing factors and even THE main factor but we can never be 100% certain on an individual case-by-case basis.

    • What I’m saying is that even someone so drunk they cannot walk who has an accident might very well have had that accident anyway. I don’t think it is a significant number of drunks that do but it stands to reason that some of them would have been in the accident regardless of their level of intoxication.

    • All of that’s pretty spot on… It’s the person behind the car/gun/lighter who does what they do. Education is key in all of these instances (real education… Not biased propaganda released in the form of a commercial with kids turning to jelly or something dumb)

  • 16 yr olds can drive- 18 yr olds can join the military- 21 yr olds can drink. In most of the USA these are the ‘legal’ ages for these activities but does it really make any sense? I was driving at 14 and my cousins drove at 12. Do you really need someone in ‘authority’ sitting next to you in your car evaluating your ability to do something that you want to do or have a natural talent for? What makes ‘them’ the fukn experts?

  • At 16 they are not ready to drive. I don’t care if they got there licence or not. They are not mature enough to be be hind the wheel of a car. My three children all wanted to drive at that age and we said fine, first of all you need your own insurance then you have to buy your own car. Not once did they drive our car. That’s the problem with folks today kids get to drive mom and dads car, they need to save for there own let them get a job and save for this .

    • Most teenagers don’t have time for a job.

      I know I don’t. Id like one simply because I want money that I can spend on stuff with my friends and be able to buy extra stuff.
      But I play travel softball year round and that consists of 2-3 practices a week and a tournament on Saturday or practice on Sunday or both. I also play softball for my high school from June 1st to October 31st. And that’s practice every single day after school from 4:00-6:30 along with games and tournaments on the weekends occasionally. At the end of October/first of November, I start swim for my school and that lasts until February. After those, I still play travel ball year round and start taking my end of course tests.

      Also, after all my practices I have at least 3 hours of homework + dinner + shower + getting everything ready for the next day. On a good day during the majority of my school year, I’ll be getting in bed around 12:30 at night.

      My weekend plans for sports are too irregular to hold a job.

      So all I ask is that you not call my generation out for not working to get our first car & pay for insurance. Many of us are already busting our butts as it is and working extremely hard, there is no way athletes or people involved in extracurricular (which is the majority of highschool students) can work or hold a job that makes enough to pay for a car and it’s insurance.

    • Well sorry but that’s the way it is.your not the only one that has all this to do.

    • Sorry Ms Mcalister, but all 16 yr olds are not equal. My 3 did very well. Oldest worked at academics, was Valedictorian. Second worked outside of school, has his Master’s and a Naval career. Third, has done fine, graduated and works construction waiting to go in Coast Guard. We’re they perfect? Of course not. They learned responsibility and accountability. 16 is a great age to drive.

    • O well Joe if that’s what you think, but how many teens have died on the road texting and racing. If they would put there phones in a drawer and forget about them they would have more time to work to make some money.
