Just What We Need

Unsurprisingly, a WaPo opinion columnist thinks that we need to really commit to more war in the War on Drugs™. You know, because over 40 years, an untold number of deaths, trillions of dollars, and zero effect on drug use (which doesn’t even question the idea that keeping people from getting high is a morally […]

A Crossroads

One idea that I’ve espoused since the beginning of the newfound limited government movement from the right is that so-called conservatives will come to a crossroads; a point at which they must decide what is more important: small government and individual liberty, or the enforcement of their moral agenda. Fortunately, it seems that some conservatives […]

Anyone who thinks that Obama, because of his cool demeanor and past history of drug usage, would be more liberal with drug policy is a fucking idiot. Obama’s Drug Czar explains: Today, Californians recognized that legalizing marijuana will not make our citizens healthier, solve California’s budget crisis, or reduce drug related violence in Mexico [.

Drug War Creations

The utterly failed War on Drugs (or as some might call it the War on People Who Use Drugs) can take full credit for a few creations. There was never such a thing as drug crime before prohibition. Nor was there such a thing as drug cartels or kingpins either. But the latest creation of […]

“It’s Not Like Any Other Drug”

Indiana, moving in reverse: Over-the-counter cold medicines with an ingredient used to make Meth may soon only be available by prescription in Indiana. “When you do it you understand how addictive it is, I mean it is not like any other drug,” explained a meth user. You’re right. No other drug has caused legislators to go […]

Against Ourselves

Isn’t it great that the very weapons which we gave to those in South America in order to fight communism during the Cold War are now being used against us by violent drug cartels?  Will we ever learn that when we give weapons away to foriegners in order to fight some ideological cause, such as […]

Equal Protection My ( | )

For just one second, I’d like you to imagine a land in which you had your rights as a parent taken away for taking legally prescribed medications.  “No way!” most would say, “That place is fucking gulag!”  And I would absolutely agree.  But apparently we have such a hard-on for the War on Drugs in […]

Lost in Translation

Jim Warren of The Lexington Herald-Leader on the finding of Moonshine in rural Kentucky: Moonshine whiskey is an illegal product that Kentucky was once well known for producing. But nowadays marijuana has largely replaced moonshine as a problem for law enforcement officers. Too bad the solution to the problem has been lost in translation.

Getting Paid to be Self Responsible

Though I understand the concept well, being a 33 year old who has already suffered a heart attack, what ever happened to the days when not fucking dying was incentive enough for one to take his meds?  I sure hope this idea doesn’t become too popular as I’m sure that it will only be a […]

A Big Surprise

Kareem Fahim via The New York Times: The government has not said whether any of the people killed by security forces were armed. And although almost a thousand people were arrested and detained for days, all but 10 of them were eventually released without charge. A side note to the collateral damage in Jamaica as […]

One Small Step

Though it certainly shouldn’t be taken as an indication that the war on drugs will be coming to a close, this new memo from Attorney General Holder is a step in the right direction.  Mike Scarcella via The National Law Journal: Sentencing Commission Vice Chairman William Carr Jr. said the Holder memo “clearly” gives more […]

Cry Me a River

Charles M. Blow via The New York Times: Such has been the narrative of his presidency: being treated like the janitor in chief — mopping up messes made by others and being chastised for leaving streaks. It couldn’t be that much of his chastisement is actually earned. I mean it isn’t as if he shoved […]

“Indiscriminate”

Kareem Fahim via The New York Times: After five days of sporadic fighting in the capital, the Jamaican police have still not found the object of their raid, a gang leader wanted in the United States on gun and drug charges, but the death toll has risen to at least 70 and complaints are mounting […]

Gene Healy via The Washingtion Examiner: Like many middle-class kids, the president briefly flirted with drug culture before putting away childish things and becoming a high achiever. (Indeed, looking at what he has achieved since, you sometimes wish pot killed motivation as effectively as drug-war propagandists claim.) The president lacks the moral authority to lock […]

Senators McCain and Kyl in a letter to President Obama concerning illegal immigration: The violence has crossed the border and escalated to a point where many Arizonans do not feel safe within their own homes or on their own property . . . It would be irresponsible not to do everything we can to stop […]

Drug War Awesomeness!

When our drug war causes political instability and violence in other countries, it should be taken as a sign that something isn’t right about the War on Drugs.  I’m not here to defend the actions of drug cartels and their leaders, but we must remember that before we initiated the War on Drugs, there was […]

Seriously.  These fucking guys are the ones responsible for defending my rights as a citizen?  The ones who “selflessly” patrol the streets making sure that no harm comes to me? Bart Bedsole via KRISTV: Police later hauled away 300-400 medium-sized plants that they also believed was marijuana. If fact, officers only stopped collecting the plants […]

Watson, a Clue!

Perhaps one of the reasons why we don’t hear about the excessive use and abuse of paramilitary SWAT team units against low level drug users is that, apparently, the only people who want to broadcast anything about it without demonizing those being perpetrated on is Russian TV.
