The War On Drugs Is Doomed

Here is one I missed from the Wall Street Journal of 22 March.

This is especially troubling for Mexican law enforcement because marijuana use, through medical marijuana outlets and general social acceptance, has become de facto legal in the U.S., and demand is robust. The upshot is that consumption is cool while production, trafficking and distribution are organized-crime activities. This is what I called in a previous column, "a stimulus plan for Mexican gangsters."
I have been calling the drug war unadulterated socialism since 2000. Price supports for criminals and terrorists. I have also been calling it Cultural Socialism and Republican Socialism.

Good to see the main stream finally catching on. I did feature the WSJ video accompanying the article in this 25 March post.
