The War on drugs; is it futile? Cafferty thinks so

artnewjackcaffertycnn

I don’t always agree with Jack, but sometimes he states the obvious;

Someone described insanity as doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result each time. That’s a perfect description of the war on drugs.

So why does Obama think legalizing Mary Jane is a bad thing? Because the more things CHANGE the more they stay the same in Washington.

Prohibition in the ’20s made millionaires out of petty criminals and made petty criminals of everyday people.
The drug war is doing the same thing today. Who benefitted most from prohibition? Guys like Al Capone.
Who benefits most from the War on Drugs(tm)? Guys like Pablo Escobar.

“Prohibition in the ’20s made millionaires out of petty criminals and made petty criminals of everyday people.”

For awhile there, I thought you were describing the Video Lottery industry.

Nah. That makes millionaires out of douchebags and poor people out of middle/working-class people who are bad at math.

Don’t legalize marijuana. Then they can tax it and it’ll cost more than cigarettes.

But how many people grow their own tobacco in their windowsill for free? You can order the seeds legally from a lot of seed catalogs and roll your own cigars from the results, though tobacco is generally better to grow outdoors.
