The war on drugs is a catastrophic failure. Every year billions of taxpayer dollars are wasted on prosecuting and imprisoning non-violent Americans. Prohibition fuels a dangerous black market where ordinary contract disputes are settled not in civil court, but in violent turf wars between gangs and cartels. Once peaceful communities have become lawless war zones; millions of lives have been ruined. Families are torn apart.
The heaviest burdens of the drug culture are laid upon African-American and Hispanic communities, prompting Ron Paul and others to rightly criticize prohibition as being the most racist policy promoted by our government.
