War on Drugs

If it were up to me, all drugs would be legal.

If it were up to me, if you hurt anyone while f----d up on drugs, you would be executed.

The above is a broad outline of my Drug Policy.

The first international drug treaty was signed a century ago this week. So what was the war on drugs like in 1912?

I agree for the most part.

Not sure I'd like to see drugs like crack and meth legal though.

The execution part is draconian, I think existing laws against causing harm work just fine. But I agree that drugs should be decriminalized.

Talk about smaller, less intrusive government, we'd take a huge step in that direction.
