Simpson on the Drug War
Not much to add to my usual rant against the drug laws except that BBC's John Simpson notes that, not only do we sponsor price supports for "controlled" substances, but we also subsidize agriculture, forcing the prices of American farm products so low that even third world economies can't compete. So, essentially, we make it impossible for these poor bastards to grow anything except illegal drugs. How can this happen without Americans being generally aware of the inconsistency?
