Pertinent shit.Let’s take a step towards solving our financial calamity by ending the nearly 40-year war on drugs. Just the thought of the waste of lives and money boils my bones. Bill Haney sums it up nicely (in a tldr fashion) on the Huffington Post:
Prohibition was repealed during the Depression of the 1930s, as the costs of enforcing draconian anti-alcohol laws became too expensive for society to bear. Today we have laws limiting alcohol use, tax revenues that result from its legal sale and a virtual elimination of violence resulting from its black-market distribution. With our economy staggering and the social, financial and strategic costs of our failed drug policies mounting, it is time for President Obama to bring an end to this ill-conceived “War”. The active search for peace with principle must begin.
May Obama lead our nation out of the clutches of idiocy NOW. Oh, and check out this movie:
