The Drug Slaughter
Radley Balko’s got a list that’s entirely too long over at his place detailing several lesser known examples of the results of the heroic war against “drugs.”

If you happen to be any one of the afore mentioned people, that’s enough to get you killed in the pursuit of eliminating drugs from our society. But hey, it’s the price that has to be paid, right? Because those damn kids can’t be allowed to smoke marijuana and screw up their own lives.
By gum, it worked against alcohol, and it’ll work against drugs. Oh, wait…
