“If you look at the Drug War from a purely economic point of view, the role of the government is to PROTECT the Drug Cartel.”

I’ve been saying this for a long time…” I see America with half the number of prisons, half the number of prisoners, ten thousand fewer homicides a year, inner cities in which there’s a chance for these poor people to live without being afraid for their lives, citizens who might be respectable who are now addicts not being subject to becoming criminals in order to get their drug, being able to get drugs for which they’re sure of the quality. You know, the same thing happened under prohibition of alcohol as is happening now.” Milton Friedman
