"If US drugs policy were a company, it would have gone bankrupt years ago." This, see, is why Bush needs to increase military spending. long before the dot-com era, the same mentality fuelled the War on Drugs: spend now, and hope for profits... well, some time in the future.

I would probably agree with the main points of this article if I got past its obnoxious, sneering attitude.

I was hoping Canada could get some money too, and guns, tanks, you name it, our military is in sad shape and an influx of cash and equipment would be great. I'm sure we could produce enough drugs to warrant it. Perhaps we could manufacture more to get more money. It has to be cheaper to grown drugs then fund an army right? This could be a great source of revenue for countries that need it, and it never stops coming. It's like winning the arms lottery.
