I never thought I’d live to see the day when Connecticut would do something that made sense as far as drug laws are concerned. Understand that this was the last state to legalize birth control back in the 1960s.
All over the the world, health agencies are starting to look at drug laws in general, and I think they’re leaning toward some kind of legalization. Let’s face it, the war on drugs is a failure. Look at Mexico. The country is very close to being a failed state because of the drug war. Mayors are being shot, and police chiefs resign and flee to the United States. Speaking of the good ol’ USA, Mexico likes to blame us for causing the huge demand for illegal drugs, but let’s face it, the demand is in every country, including Mexico.
I think someday, long after I’m gone, the world’s civilizations will legalize drugs. All drugs. I don’t know if it will be a wonderful world, but it certainly will be interesting.
