It creates larger governments and bigger budgets to plunder. A lot of socsal programs did the same thing.<quoted text>
It's not about the danger of using drugs. It's about the availability of those drugs when a war has been declared on them. The US federal government won't admit that it's losing. The state and local governments love it. They make money by confiscating assets and levying fines. The feds spend billions, the locals make millions and you and I pay for the scam. Don't come crying to mommy when your taxes are raised.
So, just how would you tackle the abuse of drugs on such a large scale as it is now, no wishful thinking allowed?
