Ethan Embry has some powerful words for the current administration.

The actor, who you may recognize as Coyote from Grace and Frankie, took to Twitter to come forward about his own personal battles, and slam Jeff Sessions’ attitudes towards drug users. Sessions released a memo last week that encouraged the harshest punishments for drug users, and encourages a “one size fits all approach” when it comes to sentencing.

The actor posted:

Embry is completely right. By criminalizing people who suffer from drug addiction, we are preventing them from getting the help they need. This kind of harsh punishment is not only not helpful, it is counterproductive. It is historically ineffective and unpopular, and will lead to an unnecessary rise in the prison population. The United States is already the world leader in prison rates. Is that really the title we want?
