Quote:"White House Drug Czar Gil Kerlikowske signaled that the Obama administration may be open to a long-overdue shift from law enforcement to addiction treatment in a release of a new policy proposal on the so-called war on drugs.”

Still, Kerlikowske stopped short endorsing legalization, telling The Root, “We know that from a public health approach, legalizing drugs, thereby making them much more easily and widely available, would not be a very wise policy. But we also don’t think that people — particularly those that are possessing small amounts of marijuana — that having an arrest record, that being put into the system, is particularly helpful either.”

Thankfully it only took them 40 years of this charade that cost taxpayers billions, puts non violent people in prison labor camps and ruins lives and families in perspective.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war

Can someone explain to me why drugs are illegal???

We tried that with alcohol and it was a hopeless failure.

If you try an experiment that blows up your lab and burns down your house - most people are smart enough to go "Whoa - that too much excitement." But nooooooooooo, the US had to go back and try again.
