COMMON SENSE ON DRUG PROHIBITION

GOLDY over at Horsesass.org highlights and discusses comments by Seattle's former police chief, Norm Stamper, published in The Seattle Times:

Stamper doesn't make any new arguments - neither does Goldy - and Stamper's position on the subject isn't exactly breaking news. But both are still worth a read.

One item that was news, at least to me, was the existence of the organization "Law Enforcement Against Prohibition"

I agree with Stamper's position, which is logical, practical, and adheres to the original values of the Republic.

I think it is fair to say the prohibitionists are losing ground, but still have a lot of ground to lose... I also think the fact the other position has prevailed for so long is a good demonstration that logical, practical, and original have little to do with popular sentiment or government throughout most of the US today.
