"War against drugs" is "war against people".

"War against Drugs" is War against People, targetting the young, the poor , the indigenous, and the counter-culture. Not one dope plant has ever been prosecuted. Not one tab of LSD has been strip searched and abused. Not one unprescribed valium pill has been terrorised on public transport by sniffer dogs. Not one gram of amphetamine has been sentenced to jail. Not one ecstacy tablet has had it's front door kicked in in the middle of the night. Not one cap of smack has been taken away from its children and threatened by a uniformed bully with a gun. Not one vial of methadone stays locked in its house, terrified of being harrassed if they go out, simply because of what they need to do to get through the day.

    dear norrie, funny, i was thinking along these lines just this morning, ie the 'war' on drugs and the ridiculous idea of legislating against a plant. your words ring true, it is very depressing.
    on the up side, i'm excited to have found your blog.
