If Bill Clinton or bad governor and president,it and president,it has
nothing to do with "inhaling." If George W.Bush did cocaine 25 years
ago,it has had no effect on his job as Texas governor;nor will it
determine if he would make a good president.The police, judges,
district attorneys and politicians who have experimented with drugs
have no less ability to perform their jobs.

Drug warriors all have their jobs because they didn't directly
benefit from destroying others' lives, hopes and dreams by catching
and "helping" them.

Politicians get elected because of their views on the war on drugs.
The police, judges, lawyers and drug therapists depend on money
generated by drug-hysteria legislation. These people gain as much be
keeping drugs illegal as the drug dealers do.
