The Farce on the War on Drugs

The Farce on the War on Drugs
..snip..
The drug war costs American taxpayers $70 billion a year and over the past 35 years, costs approach a trillion dollars. Result? Drugs remain CHEAPER and MORE available than 35 years ago.

“The war on drugs,” said Howard Wooldridge, one of the founders of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition at http://www.leap.cc. “How is that working for us in America? Is it reducing crime? Is it reducing rates of death and disease? Is it effective in keeping drugs and drug dealers away from our children? Is it making America safer and more prosperous? As my profession chases drugs, what are we missing? These are important questions as this prohibition approach costs us taxpayers some 70 billion dollars this year.”
