* Revelations that leading politicians used drugs without harm
disprove the false presumption upon which drug prohibition rests. That
so many leaders in business, entertainment, politics and sports have
used drugs without damage clearly contradicts prohibitionist claims of
death and disaster from use. It's time to repeal our lunatic drug laws
and install a regulated market for adult drug use that will eliminate
the crime and destruction created by a useless prohibition scheme.
