Here’s a challenge for America’s drug crusaders: Show us a crime of any kind committed under the influence of cannabis from 1750 to 1920. I have searched the archives in vain seeking a homicide, assault, rape or any other violent act connected to marijuana while it was legal.

Obviously Mike Ross is correct that “It’s the laws against drugs that cause crimes.” because when drugs were legal there was no such thing as “drug crime.”

It’s time to end the farce of an unwinnable drug war that causes a thousand times the troubles the drugs by themselves could ever do.
