sensible drug policy?

Obama's nominee for drug czar might actually bring reason to drug policy in this country. The former Seattle police chief wants to focus less on incarceration and more on "evidence-based" methods such as treatment. It's probably too early to signal the end of the war on drugs, especially with all fear mongering dealing with the drug war at the Mexican border, which might lead to unconstitutionally deploying US troops on national soil and militarizing the border. The DEA hasn't gotten the memo yet, though. Even though Obama said raids on medicinal facilities would stop, a dispensary in San Francisco was recently raided.

On a side note, I've decided to revive this blog and use it for a variety of topics. Pretty much whatever is on my mind at the moment.
