Editorial: Some depressing drug-war math

OC Register | January 25, 2012

Supporters of America’s continuing “war on drugs” like to scare the rest of us into pursuing the same path that the nation’s governments have been taking for decades – ratcheting up police interdiction efforts, imprisoning drug users and pushing the envelope on government snooping to intercept drug dealers and their cash.

If we don’t follow this path, we’re warned, an epidemic of drug use and lawlessness will sweep the nation. Yet many of the drug-related problems the nation faces – gang wars and crime waves in particular – are the result of government prohibition and crackdown on drugs, not drugs themselves.
