The War on Drugs: Now, after all these years, it even sounds dumb and tiresome. Here we are on our third president who we all know engaged in some illicit recreational substance use and who went on to being, well, president! That’s twenty years of presidents who got high! That’s why it’s so hard to watch President Obama and Eric Holder backstroking onto the National stage wearing their “Tough On Crime” faces and harassing California medical marijuana dispensaries.
They should allow Medical Marijuana to be the unthreatening foot in the door that it is, and open the door wider.

But after 9/11, the US military-industrial complex quickly invaded Afghanistan and began facilitating the reinstatement of the country’s poppy industry. According to the United Nations Drug Control Program (UNDCP), opium cultivation increased by 657 percent in 2002 after the US military invaded the country under the direction of then-President George W.
