This is probably the issue I give the most shits about, seeing as how I think it ties in with so many of the ills plaguing our country. Corrupt law enforcement? Government waste? Civil liberties violation? Personal freedom? Free markets? The breakdown of the fabric of our societ? It's got it all! Good news out of Portugal - Ending the War on Drugs results in less drug use and less crime! Shocking, I'm sure, to those who delude themselves into thinking prohibition solves more problems than it creates, but just affirmation of what the sane among us have known since we were smart enough to do the math. So why isn't this a more critical issue? Why don't people give as much shits about something that is creating crime, leading to death and destruction, encouraging corruption, and generally fucking up our country hardcore? Why are we so complacent about this shit?
