1. The government should be in the drug business. It is very profitable while the drug war is expensive and a losing battle. The US government should buy poppies and other drugs directly from the growers. They could then product the drugs and give it to users free – as much as they want. That would put the cartels out of business, kill the drug smuggling trade and overdose all the major users. Of course, all buyers must sign a waiver of medical treatment except for rehab. If drugs are free, other crimes would decrease as well.
2. Drug use in professional sports seems to be a major problem. I think we should allow one league in each sport to use drugs. Let’s see where it goes. We might discover that if done properly, drugs might enhance the players without serious side effects. We won’t know unless we try. After all, we let players drink and use tobacco even though we know the side effects.
