End The Drug War!

Each day a prominent person comes out urging the end of our crazy drug laws which  send hundreds of thousands to  jails which drain  billions of dollars away from education or rebuilding the infrastructure of  societies. Last  month, Pat Robertson, a leading American conservative came out against drug laws. Yesterday, Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr urged the end of his nation’s mad laws dealing with drugs. It is  time, he said, to end “the  war on  drugs.”

According to Carr, the  ‘prohibition of illicit drugs  killing and criminalising our children and we are letting it happen.” H enoted that police now have dogs in train stations sniffing for marijuana. How about dogs sniffing for real  criminals? We allow  “legal drugs”which make you happy and send people to jail for using drugs that  make them happy. Explain that  concept using logic.
