    I'm in total agreement on this point.

    Clearly, the powers that be either clueless...or they wish the 'war' to fail. Could there be some kick-backs from the drug trade that finds its way into the pols pockets?

    Proposed many years ago, this would have taken care of the problem:
    1. Confiscate illegal drugs...in drug busts and arrests.

    2. Adulterate the drugs...add some hard to detect element that would produce some detectable effect, such as turning the user green.

    3. Recirculate the 'doctored' drugs. The sale of same would pay for the entire program.

    4. At some future date, arrest all the green people. (Is that 'profiling'?)

    Voilà! Problem solved, thanks to the CAR plan!

    Ron Paul is right. The War on Drugs has failed.

    The War on Drugs only made the drug problem worse.
    Thanks Nixon.

    Users of illegal drugs made the drug problem extant.

    Thanks a lot, law-breakers.

    Just like all the people that drank during prohibition gave rise to the US mafia.

    Nothing to do with wrong minded government policies..no sir ree.

    What is it this thread? You support "big government"?

    Look at drug use before Nixon started the war on drugs and after he started it. ;)
    Most of those drugs had been illegal for years. So thanks to law enforcement for going after small time drug criminals while letting the people really behind trafficking keep going.
    The goverment has wasted too much money on the War on drugs, to do what? Make it worse? Plus if someone wants to get high, that is their problem.
