I'm writing about John P. Gamboa's outstanding column: "The 
Taliban-poppy alliance can be stopped" which ran last Thursday. Will 
the next terrorist attack against the United States involve nuclear 
weapons bought and paid for by our drug prohibition policies?

Alcohol prohibition was not terminated because it was decided that 
alcohol was not so bad after all, but rather because of the crime and 
corruption that its prohibition caused.

Now is the time to terminate our counter-productive so-called war on 
drugs. Not because some of the drugs are not dangerous - many drugs 
are very dangerous - but because of the crime and corruption drug 
prohibition is causing and because our drug prohibition policies are 
financing international terrorists.

Will it take a nuclear attack on American cities for the American 
people and politicians to finally conclude that our drug prohibition 
policies are counter-productive?
