Mises Institute: Mark Thornton- Nullify The War on Drugs: Why its Time to End The War on Drugs

I’m not sure nullify is the right word to use when it comes to the so-called United States Government’s War on Drugs. And to suggest now is not the time to conduct this so-called war which is not even a war and I’ll get to that later and what I mean by that. Because there was never a right time to conduct this bogus war at least on policy grounds. Perhaps on political grounds but that’s a different subject because there was never a right time to fight this so-called war because it was the right thing to do for the country. I’m not talking about nullifying the War on Drugs in America and saying now is not the time for it. I’m talking about ending the anti narcotics policies in America. And arresting people for what they do to themselves. And amending how we deal with narcotics in America, that’s what I’m talking about here.

Why is the so-called War on Drugs is not a real war, well as Gore Vidal said about the so-called War on Terror. Thats not a real war either and he could’ve been talking about the so-called War on Drugs as well. What Gore Vidal said about the so-called War on Terror is that it’s a phrase that a real war is fought between people or between countries or people in those countries fighting each other like a civil war. What the so-called War on Drugs is, a collection of anti narcotics policies designed against people who would use illegal narcotics or sell them to people who want them. It’s an attack against individual behavior and individual freedom, that people are too stupid to make these decisions for themselves. And that government needs to make these decisions for us.

And one reason why the U.S. Government’s anti narcotics policies, lets call them aren’t working is because Americans love freedom and the ability to make their own decisions in life. Even if that means going to prison for something they believe shouldn’t be illegal in the first place. Especially if they believe they can get away with it like adult marijuana smokers who are smart enough not to over consume. And to drive while high or use marijuana while in the presence of law enforcement officers.
