Just a random sampling of headlines should be enough to convince the average reader that there’s no winners in the war on drugs. At least, not on the side of the alleged good guys.
This week, pot activist Marc Emery was to surrender himself to Canadian authorities, who will in turn transport him to their counterparts in the U.S., where he will serve five years in prison for selling millions of dollars worth of marijuana seeds by mail.
One can debate the rightness or wrongness of Emery’s business, or the wisdom of marketing anything drug-related in the States, where even puffers can end up doing hard time.
