Listen up, screwheads. I know this blog is being monitored by some people not here of their own personal curiosity.

PORTUGAL legalizes all drugs. They treat anyone arrested with drugs as an opportunity to help that person. They offer treatment to addicted persons. RESULT: Drug use declines across every single category.

Further evidence for provincial American authoritarians who don’t even know where Portugal is.

During the early-to-mid-1990s, the Clinton administration ordered and funded a major cocaine policy study, again by RAND. The Rand Drug Policy Research Center study concluded that $3 billion should be switched from federal and local law enforcement to treatment. The report said that treatment is the cheapest way to cut drug use, stating that drug treatment is twenty-three times more effective than the supply-side “war on drugs”.–Wikipedia

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
