Wookiee suiter canards

My personal favorite supposed refutation of libertarians is that we advocate freedom for those who can afford it. But one other one is you’re just a Republican who wants to do drugs. Both are stupid. The latter is summed up by Tam:

All the probulating, door-kicking, snooping and spying, asset forfeiting, and armored personnel carriering has done more damage to this country than a hundred Woodstocks worth of stoners, to say nothing of the obscene profits we have basically legislated into existence for vicious criminal scum south of our borders and in our own cities.

Yup.

    Seems implausible to me that drug cartels don’t donate heavily to political campaigns. Like any large business, shaping government action and inaction is critically important.

    If the US were serious about the drug war, we have NIH and USDA laboratories. 5 years tops, and we could make a specific, potent, and safe biologic agent to wipe out poppy. No poppy seeds, no heroin, no money in Afghanistan and Pakistan to fund their wars. Liewise, we could wipe out cocoa -> no cocoa = no cocaine. Likewise for marijuana (if destroying marijuana is in the national interest, instead of legalizing the product). For a billion dollars, we could fund ten completely independent secret laboratories. 1 year to carefully genetically engineer the agent, 3 or 4 years to test for unintended consequences and to get ready, then go global.

    @dustydog – Or we could just honor personal sovereignty.

    Mr Dog, you have obviously never been confronted by the East Side Hungarian Ladies Baking Sodality. Pray you never are: they beat some spraying feds near to death back in the 30’s, with brooms and frying pans. South of Packo’s, it’s all about the poppy seed beigli.

    Cocoa and Coca are not related, but I think you know that. Nobody goes up against Big Chocolate.

    That’s not a bug, it’s a feature.

    @3

    I don’t even think chocolate is the prime concern of the Hungarian Baking Camp. How far would they go to protect paprika?

    I’m sorry, I didn’t make myself clear. They were fighting to protect their poppies. Growing along the railroad tracks. For the seeds. And they won, too.

    Nobody better get near my datil pepper plants, or it’s off with their parts!

    Right on. Ditto that grove of oxycontin trees, and the methbush.
