Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And that's the right answer.  Having dealt with people hopped up on hard drugs like cocaine, but also being pretty militant about the "My government doesn't own my body" view, I'm conflicted on it.  And then there's the -- in my view, perfectly valid -- argument that it's wrong to penalize the overwhelming majority of drug users who aren't causing problems simply because some can't handle their highs.

I'm also not wild about throwing people in jail for things that I've done more times than I'd care to admit.

This is all to say nothing of what I think is clearly the fact that the Drug War has not worked, and it will not work.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
