Maybe they might want to back off for a bit, see what happens. Stop acting on fear and let statistics count for themselves.
I'm not surprised that the "war on drugs" is failing miserably - and its downright pathetic that even with all their efforts, drug use is still on the substantial rise. They should be reevaluating their actions, instead of insisting that shit is going to go down - when frankly, I don't think it ever has.
"War on Drugs" is a really terrible term to put on it. "War" suggests that there's a definitive enemy - when frankly, there's not. When you're fighting the people of your own populace, you're fighting yourself.
This is the same reason that nothing short of total domination is going to stop file-sharing, or pornography, or anything else the close-minded fundamentalists of the world have a problem with (with the exception of peer-to-peer networking, because that really is just plain thievery).
This "War" is better classified at what it really is - desperate, unorganized, flailing struggle against a substance that is easily moved, easily distributed under the authorities very noses.
Yes, drugs fuck people up. Excessively. So why the hell aren't they focused on education - real education, not the propaganda shit they seem intent on blasting out, the nation hasn't fallen for scare tactics in the last 30 or so years. I want them to admit, to suck it up and say that a small uses, or more accurately recreative use of (recreative) drugs isn't bad for you.
Because it isn't.
From there, label out how they work, what works.... and shit, it's never going to happen. I really wish there was an option to withdraw your personal contribution of tax money from projects you don't agree with - hows that for democracy?
