    Of course. When you are busy fighting victimless crime you have less resources to fight real crime. But by all means let's keep doing what we've been doing even though the government itself admits it's not working. We'll follow Taylor's lead and throw another trillion at it. That should work. Let's ban even more stuff. That will make it work even better.

    If there is a murderer in town and you catch him, the murders stop. You have a drug dealer in town and you catch him and a new one takes over (and perhaps in the process adds to the town collection of unsolved murders)
    Taylor has the solution. More of the same!

    I don't know. there's no way we can legalize hard drugs, and this "war on drugs" is unsustainable.
    Let the states handle it.

    And I'm not sure what effect you think drug laws are currently having on "hard drugs", because they certainly aren't stopping anyone from using them.

    If you cannot defeat crime, there are only two choices: keep wasting money on a futile civilian police force, or just let people be people.

    Except drug use is not a real "crime". It's just something you find distasteful or immoral.

    Boy, you "small government" conservatives are a funny bunch, aren't you?

    Even U.S. drug czar Gil Kerlikowske concedes the strategy hasn't worked.
    Holy **** - an honest politician!

    I love this guy for his admittance an acceptance.

    Nobody is saying we should stop fighting crime, just that we should be more reasonable about what we define as crime.

    Hmmm...Seems like this sentiment could be applied to the so called "War on Poverty" as well could it not?
