The drug war's promotion of murderous violence was highlighted again this
week with the discovery of what appear to be mass human graves in Ciudad
Juarez, Mexico.

Anyone with an ounce of common sense - of course, that excludes all drug
warriors and most members of Congress - should know that the only reason for
all this death and terror is the war on drugs. Isn't it obvious that the
"war" is much worse than the potential drug-related problems that may occur
if drugs are legalized, taxed and controlled?

Just as the doomsayers were wrong when they finally ended Prohibition 1,
they will be wrong again when this cruel and immoral Prohibition 2 is also

The only barrier to an end to this insane war is the addiction that the
government and other vultures have for the money and power they get from
encouraging and expanding this "war" against the American people.
