Yeah, for all sake let's rack up he "war on drugs" again. We need some more jobs in "rehab", probation peepers and drug testing industry.

At the same time, no need to worry about the cartels running down our borders for THAT reason only..

I wonder when we see the same alarm levels over diabetes and mental health? Definitely a more important priority than someone getting high/stoned now&then..

I am of the mind to legalize all drugs for adults.

I believe they will eventually breed out.

Supplying them their drugs would be less costly than the war on drugs.... that just keeps racking up the legal system bills for the tax-payer to foot.

Sure, who cares about the druggies... well until they break into your house, steal all your possessions and destroy your life to pay for their habit. This is a HUGE problem in the county. Ignoring them won't change that issue, just make it worse.

Do you have a solution to offer up? It is obvious the war on drugs isn't working.
