Re: "Life After the Wicked Witch," Legalization Nation, 8/12


The stench of the war on drugs - which like all wars, is a war on 
people - pervades our bureaucratic, Puritan culture. It's important 
that the article pointed out the ongoing support for the war among 
local agencies. The only real answer is total decriminalization at 
every bureaucratic level.

Medical marijuana is not an answer - it means ongoing regulation and 
ongoing creation of criminals and injustice system victims all in the 
name of bureaucratic income. Some people will have read a bit of 
history about Prohibition. We have never learned!
