Strange But True: "The War on Drugs"
This is the second of my Strange But True posts. There is not much I can add here that the video doesn't say. Ending the "war on drugs" has long been something I have advocated from an economic, crime, and freedom position.
We can tax drugs, regulate their cultivation/manufacture/sale, educate against drug use, and provide free drug rehabilitation to help addicts and thus save taxpayers much money, take the profit out of crime, build fewer prisons, save more lives, and have less government control of our personal lives. We can do this on a gradual basis, if the federal government would stop fighting state laws that are moving in this direction. [Wikipedia]
Please watch the video and I invite your discussion.
