And That's The Way It Is!

Walter Cronkite dives into the "War on Drugs" at the Drug Policy Alliance. This organization's Mission Statement reads,
The Drug Policy Alliance envisions a just society in which the use and regulation of drugs are grounded in science, compassion, health and human rights, in which people are no longer punished for what they put into their own bodies but only for crimes committed against others, and in which the fears, prejudices and punitive prohibitions of today are no more. Our mission is to advance those policies and attitudes that best reduce the harms of both drug misuse and drug prohibition, and to promote the sovereignty of individuals over their minds and bodies.

Seems like solid policy, yet even the Bu$hCo "Patriot Act" tries to wage War on Drugs! Peace ... or War!
