Re: "Troopers seized record amount of drugs in '06," Friday news story.

Why is this news? Next year, they will seize an even larger amount.
The following year, another record. This will continue until the U.S.
abandons its ill-conceived war on drugs and starts treating drug use
as a public health, not a criminal, issue.

Did it do any good? Did it cause enough of a supply shortage to drive
up the price? Any impact? Not really. They wasted their time, effort
and safety chasing the jack-a-lope of a drug-free America.

If you think the war on drugs will succeed, you do not understand how
capitalism works or believe in a free society.
