File this under the "duh" column. I'm not firmly opposed to the US Drug War because I smoke cannibis or shoot needles in my arm. I'm firmly opposed to this stupid war because it is a catastrophic failure. In reality, all we are doing is subsidizing enormous criminal syndicates by guaranteeing enormous prices (and profits) for the drugs they manufacture and sell.
I have a better strategy for defeating the drug lords. Bankrupt them. Take the money out of the game, and you'll destroy their business empires out completely. Then they'll have to work at White Castle or Wal-Mart.
And isn't that the best punishment of all? :P
