The Free Press has printed reports and letters from its readers regarding
U.S. citizens' peaceful protests against the Bush administration's war on
Iraq. I applaud the hundreds of thousands who have courageously taken their
voices to the streets in opposition to that war. I am in strong agreement
with their protests. 

Unfortunately, I cannot help but wonder why these same citizens have not
expressed the need to stop the longest undeclared war in U.S. history, a war
the government foolishly calls a "War on Drugs." In reality, it is a "war on
the people." 

Certainly, opposition and protest from the American people is the only
process that will force our political leaders to end their hypocritical and
horribly misguided "war on drugs." 

As with all wars, this war too must come to an end.
