The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

“The war on drugs has turned into a war on civil liberties The reason is simple. The war is a war on people suspected of using, or dealing in, or otherwise being involved in drugs. But the drug industry survives because tens of millions of people engage in voluntary transactions, which they try to keep secret. Hence law enforcement must attempt to penetrate the private lives of millions of suspects, which could be almost anyone.” – J. Orlin Grabbe

  1. Amen and Amen. The war on drugs is a war on people. You can’t declare war on an inanimate object. The war on drugs is the war on guns and the growing war on cars with the internal combustion engine to stop climate change.. It’s never been about control of drugs or drug use, guns or gun use, or even the war to “save the planet”. It’s always and forever about the totalitarian control of people.
