End the Drug War

Kathleen Parker writes: Arguments against prohibition should be obvious. When you eliminate the victimless “crime” of drug use, you disempower the criminal element. Neutering drug gangs and cartels, not to mention the Taliban, would be no small byproduct of decriminalization. Not only would state regulation minimize toxic concoctions common on the black market, but also taxation would be a windfall in a hurting economy.
