Thirty years ago, the biggest threat to her was nuclear war.

Today the threat is drugs

Teenage drug use has doubled in the last 4 years,

What's been done?

Clinton cut the Office of National Drug Control Policy by 83%.

And his own Surgeon General even considered legalizing drugs.

Bill Clinton said he'd lead the war on drugs and change America. All he did was change his mind.
