The Statistics on the Failed War on Drugs

By Doug Newman
(Find me on Facebook.)

Mainstream “conservatives” insist that they oppose big government and that government cannot solve problems. However, they sure love their War on Drugs.

Recently, someone sent me a link to these statistics on the horrific failure that has been the War on Drugs. It is no different than any other unconstitutional big government program.

Also, the War on Drugs has turned the “land of the free” into the nation with the world’s highest incarceration rate. This trend was began an upward spike in 1971 when then-President Nixon proclaimed a “War on Drugs.”

In Colorado, in 2012, voters have a chance to affect a step away from this madness. Amendment 64 will legalize possession and use of small amounts of marijuana for people over the age of 21.

Vote YES on 64, Colorado!

About Food for the Thinkers

My name is Doug Newman. I live in Aurora, Colorado, just outside Denver. Food for the Thinkers is mostly about the connection between Christianity and libertarianism. Most Christians do not understand libertarianism. And most libertarians do not understand Christianity. Hopefully, this blog helps clear up those misunderstanding. Check out my old page at And remember: When you let people do whatever they want, you get Woodstock. But when you let governments do whatever they want, you get Auschwitz.
