"Sobering reality of America's drug war After 40 years and $1 trillion, the U.S. war on drugs has met none of its goals." From an article posted here: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100513/ap_on_re_us/failed_drug_wa The hysteria surrounding illegal immigrants who simply want to work, escape the violence in their home and have their children attend schools much better then was available to them is a canard. The real problem is drug smuggeling and the insanity of doing the same thing over and over and over again for 40 years. The Justice Dept. needs to remove MJ from the list of schedule I drugs, and each state should be allowed to regulate MJ production, sales, possession and use.
