Welcome to the party, Leonard.

...or, Yeah, Leonard, let's do that:

Let's admit War on Drugs a failure

 And while we're at it, how about we give up on this silly and arguably just as antithetical to liberty War On Guns, too? I know you hate them as much as you hate drugs, but if you're going to argue that Prohibition was a failure with tobacco and drugs, it only follows that you have to extend the argument to other prohibited objects, too. And how about you confront the nasty reality of the history of gun control, that it was originally used as a tool to keep black people down just as surely as the drug laws do now?
