Three key facts about drugs (in the news)

1) Our current President is a self-admitted pot user and his druz czar Gil Kerlikowske says we cannot have a war on our own people (i.e., the drug war)

2) Our top law enforcement official in the US, Attorney General Eric Holder, says the drug war is too costly and not effective enough

3) Top scholarly experts across the political spectrum have concluded that the drug war is a massive failure.

Given this, you'd expect this to be top news, no?

And it is!

In the next few weeks, major sentencing reforms will be announced with regard to drug policy. I cannot wait!
