Facing Facts in the War on Drugs

REMOVE THE PROFIT Mr. Nyhan makes an interesting point, one that has been bandied around for several years. Remove the profit from illegal drugs, and the problem will disappear practically overnight. Gone would be the pushers. Gone would be the reason for their existence. Without the pushers, there would be fewer drug addicts. The drug […]
