Legalize Drugs

My friend and fellow activist Dawn Palmer had a great letter published in today's Anniston Star.

Legalize drugs

There seems to be a feud going on with the Department of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the National Rifle Association concerning whether or not the guns in Mexico are coming from the United States and arming the drug cartels.

There is a possible solution to both of their grievances as well as getting a hold on our drug-abuse problem — legalize all drugs.

Sounds horrible, doesn't it? However, legalizing all drugs would stop the cartels in their tracks and the flow of guns into Mexico, as well as taking the drug-abuse problem out of our criminal-justice system and putting it into the health-care system where it belongs. Then we could focus on the biggest drug pushers of them all, the pharmaceutical companies.

Go Dawn Go!!
