September 26, 2012

Yet another admission that the War on Drugs has been a dismal failure:  http://seattletimes.com/html/nationworld/2019256099_apltdrugwarguatemala.html

When will we finally realize that new approaches — such as legalizing, controlling and taxing drugs — are needed? https://joesmyth.org/2012/05/20/crime-courts-2/

    Legalizing drugs is a very broad statement. My questions, which drugs do we legalize? Some are downright deadly and so mind altering, they jeopardize public safety. If you are talking marijuana, we now its effects on the brain are serious (http://www.healio.com/psychiatry/journals/jpn/%7B40f234d3-1bd1-4bd2-9eed-e5877ec0ac5d%7D/update-on-marijuana). I am not saying that some legalizing control measures could not be implemented, but there will be ramifications and a lot of potential second guessing that will make splashy headlines.
