In the Nov. 22nd Republican debate on CNN Ron Paul was asked about the Drug War. He called it a “failure” and said the US should handle illegal drugs the same as alcohol. “Al least sick people should be able to get marijuana”. He went on to say prescription drugs do the most harm and he fears our civil liberties at the strong hand of the federal government.
The real story is that the audience reaction is not getting the same weight as “let him die” or cheers for Rick Perry’s death penalty cheers.
