You can read the preface and the first four chapters of my new book BUSTED – A Whistleblower's Guide to the War on Drugsfor FREE at Amazon. The book shows that drug possession is a natural and statutory right – not subject to any court – and that drug dealing among the states is to be regulated within the executive branch. It also shows that criminal drug prohibition operates only in the federal areas based on Congress' power at Article I, Section 8, Clause 17. Ultimately, as statutes demonstrate, the war on drugs has been waged and defended in the wrong courts, in the wrong branch of government at both the state and federal levels.

Have you or your clients been duped?
American drug defense attorneys have been duped to believe that drug dealing is criminally prohibited in the judicial branch, when instead it is regulated in the executive branch. Disfavored drug dealers are to be treated just as are moonshiners – with administrative due process – using the equitable remedies of confiscation, forfeiture and injunction, and not the criminal justice system. Ohio v. Helvering (1934) tells us that business is regulated among the states. Gonzales v. Raich (2005) shows that regulation (i.e., confiscation and injunction) is the extent of governments' power over interstate drug commerce. With the publication of my book BUSTED – A Whistleblower's Guide to the War on Drugs ($29.95), the failure to realize this lesson constitutes legal malpractice. No attorney can properly practice law in the wrong court, in the wrong branch of government, as drug defense attorneys have been doing. And now you know. If you are such a drug defense attorney who has been fighting regulatory drug matters in judicial courts, or Article I matters in Article III courts – that is, completely oblivious to constitutional and statutory law – then reading my book should be your top priority. Otherwise, you are relying on hearsay and willfully avoiding better information at the expense of your drug clients. You can read the first four chapters for FREE online at Amazon.com. You owe it to yourself – let alone your clients – to read my book. Kurt St. Angelo, J.D., author http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01604EZJ6
Why I know that you've never read the Controlled Substances Act
If you are a drug defense attorney, then I know (and can likely prove) that you have never read the Controlled Substances Act. Of course, this would be legal malpractice per se. I know this because you have been defending your drug clients in the wrong courts. My new book on the illegality of the drug war shows that under the state and federal CSAs, drug possession is both a natural and legal right in the United States, and that drug dealing is regulated. This means that disfavored drug dealers are to be treated just like moonshiners – using the equitable remedies of confiscation, forfeiture and injunction, and not the criminal justice system. That you have not known this reflects your misfeasance. Your false practice reflects that you have never read or understood the CSAs. It speaks for itself. Reading my book (along with the CSAs) remedies this. You can read up-through chapter 4 of the former for FREE at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01604EZJ6. This means that literally nothing stands between you and your drug clients' proper representation.
