Let's admit it; the so-called "war on drugs" is and has been a 
failure. However, most of us are not affected by the ludicrous policy 
and do not speak on behalf of those who want to smoke an illegal substance.

I used to make jokes about the criminalization of drugs that led to 
people wandering into "bad" neighborhoods and dealing with dangerous 
people. In jest I'd say "hope I never have to go to dodgy street 
corners to get my fix."

Now the joke is on me. My Berger cookies are under attack ("FDA 
trans-fat ban threatens Berger cookies," Nov. 22). Come on, fellow 
citizens, please support my habit. Your comfort food could be next.

Since our country has become our "homeland," the government has 
invaded every aspect of our lives. I don't want to live in a 
motherland or fatherland that tells me what I can eat. I'm a grown-up 
and I want my cookies!
