We are spending hundreds of millions of dollars trying to curb the flow of
illegal drugs into this country.

Much of this money is being spent in the countries where the drugs originate.

The flow of drugs follows the law of supply and demand.

If there were no demand, there would be no supply. How about turning our
attention to the millions of people in this country who are users of
recreational drugs?

Not that the drug enforcement people are neglecting this approach entirely.

They are busy cracking down on those who use marijuana as medicine.
