MJNN Exclusive: Bush’s Drug War At 25, Part IV

SEPTEMBER 4, 2014 BY Bailey Hirschburg

Part IV: “…nothing but a handful of useless chemicals…” Following the addresses, Bush received a small bump in public approval, but it dissipated in the following weeks as conflicts with Congress drained his ability to follow though on his “no new taxes” pledge. Crime and drug legislation contributed to Bush reneging and agreeing to new revenue in 1991. Violent crime, economic stagnation, and drug use continued to spike throughout the remainder of his time in office. His only significant crime legislation would be for weapons of mass destruction in 1992.
