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.
