Yes, objectivity and reality were the first casualties of our
country's glorious "War on Drugs." The *abuse* of drugs, whether legal
or illegal, obviously costs our society dearly, but the hysterical
restriction of responsbile drug *use* is clearly not a realistic
solution.

>Let people know how you feel.
The War on Drugs is a war on *my* rights, and I'm not going to stand
for it!
