Anyone who disbelieves the high cost to society of our
unconstitutional war on drugs needs only to look at the
case of Charleen Foree. Had her drug of choice been
alcohol or tobacco, she never would have been incarcerated at taxpayer
expense, and her body violated by a taxpayer-subsidized company.

This case illustrates all too well not only the monetary cost of this
illegal war, but also the human cost, as Ms. Foree will never be able
to have children or live her life the same again.

We need to stop this madness now before it's too late.
