More evidence that those who vehemently push this so called ‘war on drugs’ are not only buffoons, but out of touch with reality. It seems that the latest crusade in the ‘war on drugs’ is being led by Sen. Chuck Schumer of N.Y. who wants the Feds to crack down on a secretive narcotics market operated on the Internet.
“Never before has a website so brazenly peddled illegal drugs online,” Schumer said. “By cracking down on the website immediately, we can help stop these drugs from flooding our streets.”
He has got to be kidding. Someone please tell me he’s kidding. I would dare say that decent law abiding citizens who work and live and whose children go to school in drug ravaged neighborhoods would rather have drugs FedExed to users than to have junkies and dealers invade their streets in search of their ‘cure’. Think of it, no more dealers on the corners. No more drug violence in the streets. The hipsters and artists can now hang out at the internet cafes with the dealers discussing the profit margin on a kilo of cocaine while drinking lattes.
