Pat Buchanan suggests end to Drug War

Buchanan says:

There are two sure ways to end this war swiftly: Milton's way and Mao's way. Mao Zedong's communists killed users and suppliers alike, as social parasites. Milton Friedman's way is to decriminalize drugs and call off the war.


Americans are never going to adopt the Maoist solution. For the users of drugs are all too often classmates, colleagues, friends, even family. Indeed, our last three presidents did not deny using drugs.


Will we raise the white flag in the drug war, as well? Which is the greater evil? Legalized narcotics for America's young or a failed state of 110,000 million on our southern border?

The False Prophet offers this tongue-in-cheek summary of Buchanan's article, "alcohol Prohibition was a good, moral thing, but, unfortunately, if we don't legalize drugs, we'll be overrun by beaner thugs."
