Wasting resources on drug prohibition

Here is another example of how even local resources are being wasted on drug prohibition.

The title of the article is "Law-enforcement agencies smoke out marijuana plants in Watauga County."

Of course, there is not a single word about whether this impacts availability or use. And that is because it does not, as all the studies and available data clearly show.

There is also no word about how much of this stuff the police get to keep, including any revenue they find, ironically to fund more drug war.

Yet, it makes a nice headline, doesn't it?
