Why don't you just admit you've lost the "drug war" and put those billions of dollars to use in social programs to IMPROVE OUR SOCIETY in America?
Jeez... the government has spent over a TRILLION dollars on this drug war these past 40+ years, and it hasn't really made much of a dent, has it? Legalize it, control it, sell it, and tax it. WIN WIN situation there!
Added bonus - AMERICANS get services and benefits to improve their quality of life!
