Is a hopeless failure. In a free nation people should
be able to ingest any substances they want as long as they don't hurt
anyone else. If a person commits a crime while on drugs then you
prosecute based on the crime not on any drug they may have ingested.
The War on Drugs isn't stopping people from taking them
and actually increases crime related to drugs. Making drugs
illegal increases their price and makes it more profitable for
criminals to sell them. The DEA also benefits since now they have a
reason to exist and have careers based on this moronic
The illegality of pot is especially stupid given the
use of this plant throughout America's history.
If they instead were to make it taxable and legal like
tobacco the crime associated with it would go down drastically.
