Small-Time Drug Possession Warrants Jail Time But Laundering Billions In Drug Cartel Money Doesn’t?


Quote of the day:

If you’re caught with an ounce of cocaine, the chances are good you’re gonna go to jail. If it happens repeatedly, you may go to jail for the rest of your life.

But evidently if you launder nearly a billion dollars for drug cartels and violate our international sanctions, your company pays a fine and you go home and sleep in your bed at night — every single individual associated with this. And I think that’s fundamentally wrong.

– Senator Warren
