Great explanation of what the War on Drugs truly means, mythsaje!

And this should come as no surprise to any progressive. Yet most of them seem quite content not to challenge the general assumption that there NEEDS to be a War on Drugs.

Not that it's accomplishing anything. Drugs are AT LEAST as readily available now as they were when the Drug War began. And what's worse is that more dangerous drugs are far more common than they were back then.

War on Drugs takes away civil liberties, arrests millions and incarcerates communities. The War on Terror destroys the Constitution, an Article at a time and fails to catch the perpetrators. So they infiltrate and subjugate We the People simultaneously. Most insidious, it's a great way for the Police State to get its licks in.

PS: A most hearty welcome to DU, mythsaje!
