”Although small in numbers of offenders, there isn't a major police force -- the Los Angeles Police Department included -- that has escaped the problem: cops, sworn to uphold the law, seizing and converting drugs to their own use, planting dope on suspects, robbing and extorting pushers, taking up dealing themselves, intimidating or murdering witnesses.”

Norm Stamper, former 34 year police officer and police Chief.

The war on drugs is a failure. Legalize and regulate them like alcohol.
