War On Drugs

Drugs are bad, our leaders have told us so. Ok, drugs are bad, but so is the war on drugs. Every time we have a war on something we seem to lose and our treasury gets emptied as well. War on Poverty, poverty is still here. War on Drugs, drug use is up. War on Terror, that ole Bin Laden is still out there.

Getting our war on is a big scam and its time we put aside these grand campaigns for simple pragmatic measures that have measurable effects. If the data shows they work, we continue, if not we change course.
