Quote of the Day (9.25.12)

"...Should drugs - especially marijuana - be legal? The answer is yes. Immediately. Without hesitation. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200 seized in a civil asset forfeiture.....It's high time to end prohibition....Prohibition is a textbook example of a policy with negative unintended consequences.....vigorous enforcement means higher prices and higher revenue for drug dealers...people associate the drug trade with crime and violence...these aren't caused by the drugs themselves but from the fact that they are illegal."
