"The Drug Problem"

Welcome to Neo-Prohibition

For a sample of a group aiming toward a more sane drug policy, check out The Drug Policy Alliance.

It has been obvious for a long time that policies to eliminate drugs by cutting off the supply are a hugely expensive exercise in futility. These policies are just about as successful as Prohibition in the early 20th century. Better to address demand --- why is it that people want to escape their daily lives by using chemicals that can kill them?
