The war we can't admit we've lost

The war on drugs, particularly the war on marijuana, has drained our country's treasury, filled our prisons and has made criminals out of those who are no more threatening, maybe less threatening, than your average Bud drinker.

New studies show that the country could save a bundle by opting out of this futile war. Other studies indicate that crime rates, particularly murder rates, might plummet, if historical trends hold true.
