On the drug war

Monday, February 9th, 2009

Xrlqy Wrlqy says: drugs have become a religion on both sides. On the one hand, drug prohibitionists have an annoying tendency to ignore the fact that prohibiting a substance causes the price to skyrocket, thereby creating the motive underlying most “drug-related” crime. On the other, legalization and decriminalization advocates have an equally annoying tendency to […]

Ron Paul: end the drug war

Friday, September 28th, 2007

A video of Ron Paul stating we should end the drug war. Now, I don’t think Ron Paul has a chance in Hell of winning the election. But I am glad that someone is talking about this issue. I’m also surprised since this is an issue that is usually verboten at political debates because it’s […]

Torture in the drug war

Wednesday, April 26th, 2006

Not blogged about it because it infuriates me. But apparently some Campbell County deputies tortured some drug dealer and it was caught on tape. I haven’t listened to it as I can’t really stand to hear that crap. I perused the transcripts and it’s quite hideous. Blogs covering the issue are AC, gunner, Blake, and […]

More drug war stupidity (it never stops!)

I mentioned that Oregon politicos were pondering requiring prescriptions for cough medicine to prevent the meth epidemic (EPIDEMIC, AARRGGHH!). Well, they did it: Oregonians just got “safer” today (and don’t worry, YOU’RE next!) with the passage of a new law to make “certain cough medicines” (“certain”, as in the ones that actually WORK that have […]

More drug war stupidity

Pete reports some pretty disheartening news. The US spent money and resources to train Mexican drug warriors as commandos to stop (i.e., kill) drug dealers. The problem with this is that drugs are lucrative so the commandos switched sides and are headed to the border: a group of rogue Mexican military commandos may be headed […]

In the process of the raid, two officers opened the door to […]
