I was reading an about recent drug busts at the Canadian border that utilized helicopters and planes. Buried within the article is some evidence on just how well the War on People Ingesting Stuff We Don’t Like Them Ingesting is going.
Despite the arrests, investigators this week conceded that they have not stopped the practice and are unlikely to ever do so.
So, let me get this straight, what you’re doing isn’t stopping this practice and it’s unlikely to do so? There’s a term for this: failure. Please insert my usual comment here about how drugs should be legalized, regulated and taxed like booze and cigarettes. Oh and the entire budget for War on People Ingesting Stuff We Don’t Like Them Ingesting could maybe go into education. Of course, we all know that only backwards third world countries with horrific crime rates and low life expectancies decriminalize drugs right? Places like Canada, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Mexico.
And don’t get me started on how much it costs to house potheads in prison. What a perfectly awesome way to waste my tax dollars.
