Ret. Detective wants drugs legalized
but highly regulated of course

Quote:The War on Drugs is a War Against America

Detective Cole argues that the only solution to the drug problem is the legalization of all drugs. The $69 billion spent each year fighting the drug war could then be reallocated to regulation of the industry and treatment for addiction. He argues that instead of taxing the drug trade the government should offer free maintenance doses for addicts in an environment where professional help for addiction is available. He points to the successes of similar programs in Switzerland and the Netherlands as a model for a treatment system which can succeed in eliminating overdose deaths, reducing the crime rate, and achieving dramatically higher recovery rates for addicts.

At NASA, it really is rocket science, and the decision makers really are rocket scientists.
But a body of research that is getting more and more attention points to the ways that smart people working collectively can be dumber than the sum of their parts. ..

It is the triumph of concurrence over good sense, and authority over expertise.&
