I'm not sure I understand where the author stands after that article. It didn't change my opinion, which is the worst thing you can do with drugs is be caught with them.
There isn't a billion dollar black market industry because poor people and kids use drugs. The middle class uses drugs, and lots of them.

I'd like to ad to Midvaliean, there's also a billion dollar industry in fines, incarceration and confiscation that doesn't even try and fix the problem. Ad to that the Big Pharm industries which profits no matter where the drugs end up.

The incarceration rate in the United States of America is the highest in the world today. And we represent the "Free" world?

Give them tools to cope with life, not connections to cop for life.

Nixon's war on drugs was a declaration of war on the American people's freedom. Has only made it possible to privatize jells. Turn people ageist each other, lacking any understanding. Mind altering drugs alters the mind. Legal or illegal, liquid of pills or powder. It's a You Matter thing. Relationships ain't for {Me].
