The war on drugs caused this mess. What genius thinks more government regulation on any level will make it better? Besides, there are many Americans who suffer from chronic pain. Draconian measures just make it harder for them to get adequate treatment. Nothing will improve until we stop filling our prisons with drug offenders & focus on rehabilitation. The punitive approach has failed. Excessive policing has failed. The current approach to regulation is clearly not working. Could you guys just back off & not pee on this wall? I'm certain there are smart people in the U.S. (Dr Carl Hart, for one) who could figure this out. None of them appear to be employed by federal or state government in any capacity.
