The drug war is a $50b expense that trickles down further to overcrowded prisons on the local and state level.

How are these not examples of issues that drive debt and massively increase scope of government? We're talking hundreds of billions in spend.
They're not a part of this budget deal and they aren't entitlements, which drive our debt problem. You can complain about these things if you want, but complain to someone else because I see it as trivial and off topic.
