Winning the War on Drugs

Begins with reframing the context and withdrawing the troops:

Much that needs to be done to end the ‘drug war’ and turn it into ‘drug peace-keeping’ must be done on the state and local level. For as more and more states and localities pull their troops out of the ‘drug war’ the federal government would find itself without the resources or support to continue the war. Actually withdrawing local resources from the 'war on drugs' is the only way to break the political deadlock that has trapped us in a failed policy for decades.

Of course, such a model of policy change has implications for other wars, too...

Yes, on this and many other fronts we need to stop attending the fed's party!

Thanks for linking to my blog on Cat Bloggin Friday! :)
I told mine, Oliver, that he's now famous.
He seemed unimpressed. ;)
