Dead Mass Murderers
Shouldn’t Smoke Weed
After so many years of madness, there’s a growing consensus that we definitely lost the drug war. And a lot of people who only those smoking something really bad would ever associate with the multibillion dollar business of drug trafficking and the failed laws designed to prevent it, have now joined the public debate.
A recent article by former Fed Chairman Paul Volker and former U.S. Secretary of State George Shultz, just to mention two distinguished public figures known for moderate views on government policies, defends a honest, open public debate over drug decriminalization.
