    wasn't for the War on Drugs.

    Consider what happened in the arms race between criminals and the police the first time we tried prohibition.  Then consider the relative peace and quiet after it was repealed.  Heck, it was just a few decades ago that the police were rarely armed with nothing more powerful than .38 specials and shotguns.  Now they have M-4s and armored vehicles.

    End the war on drugs and perhaps our police can go back to being police?

    There are four boxes to be used in the defense of liberty: soap box, ballot box, jury box and ammo box. Use in that order.
