OneEyedJack: I do remember how she was disparaged for her "just say no" motto on drug use. The left howled and mocked her for that, because...I don't know why.
About government getting all up in your bong:
When Prohib was initiated, drinking went up. After Repeal, drinking went up.
JohnTant: "...how much of this police militarization traces back to the 'war on terror?'"

Bernhard Goetz, now 65, arrested for selling $30 worth of pot in NY subway. The article is mainly about the '84 shooting, no details on how he got entrapped now.
One of the first thoughts to arise in my uncaffeinated brain this morning:
Well, Slaps, there once was an Amendment about booze. At least that was, briefly, tragically, Constitutional. Everything else is the Leviathan of taxes and regs.
