"What we have here is a failure to communicate."

We, meaning nearly every American politician, authority and citizen, insofar as addressing the problems of drug war. We will always have drugs and will always have problems with drugs but they will be much less severe when we tax, regulate and actually control these so called "controlled substances" for adult use.

We can suppose for another 93 years that we can change the minds of hundreds of millions of users worldwide, tens of millions of growers, traffickers, distributors; continue to feed our terrorist enemies cash cow, fund the paramilitaries in Colombia and the deadly cartels in Mexico, give reason for the violent gangs to exist on our streets, ensure our childrens easy access to drugs or we can legalize drugs for adults. The answer to this question must come from you and be directed to our servants in the legislatures. Silence is far from golden.
