The Bar Gets it Right.

This piece reports that the King County Bar Association wants the state to take the control of drugs away from gangs and street dealers by manufacturing them and distributing them to addicts instead of locking up users and letting the black market thrive.

Finally some sense.

Not like you don't already know this but...Studies in recent years have shown that drug-crime prison sentences have fallen disproportionately on blacks and that more than three-quarters of the $40 billion spent on drug abuse in the United States each year goes toward punishment, not treatment.
