True, but both (R) and (D) seem addicted to this worthless and counterproductive 'war on drugs'. At least some (D)'s support legalization of marijuana. Perhaps the dumbest thing on earth is spending so much money (and man-hours of police work) on jail/prison space for non-violent MJ offenders.Originally posted by: bamacre
Not mention, if he wants to help prevent those "drive by shooters," he'd support ending this ridiculous drug war which only empowers the criminals he is complaining about. Of course, he's not going to get that with the Democrats, who seem to be focused on the guns rather than the true roots of the problems.
Drugs used to be legal, and that took the profit from the dealers hands. They were cheap, and low-class, and they weren't a scourge of society that caused gang wars and incredible expense.
