Are we winning yet? #1

This is the first week of the Carnival of the Drug War. And what a carnival it is.

jj mollo looks at why alcohol prohibition required a Constitutional Amendment and why drug prohibition did not. He says it is due to the ever flexible Interstate Commerce Clause.

Jacob Sullum of Reason Magazine chimes in with a report on a pain Doctor who was convicted of criminal distribution of drugs. Interestingly enough the jury foreman said the Doctor was not running a criminal enterprise.

And to round out this issue Why Old farts are turning to pot. Hint: it is better than Viagra.
