Tom Cotton seems to want for us to return to the regressive War on Drugs policies of the 1980s and 1990s.

This is disingenuous and racist because prosecutions and law enforcement operations are at the discretion of people who will not target powder cocaine users from affluent backgrounds. So Tom Cotton is just talking a bunch of nonsense and doesn't understand that the War on Drugs is not just the statuary laws on the books but the entire way the system uses those laws on the books to disproportionately target African Americans.

Oh he understands, he just doesn't care

 I agree that's why I said it was disingenuous.

Well the powdered version is whiter, so this makes sense.

Came here to echo this sentiment. Then I read the actual tweet …

Cotton shouldn’t surprise me in this way and I’m ashamed to say that I thought this as well. Should’ve know that he’d be in favor of increasing penalties.
