dionysusaur: Marcus Aurelius: The Taliban banned opium production.  Opium only exploded after we took over.

You're saying they're not _all_ bad? I'm sure the Khmer Rouge had some good points, too.

No, I happen to think opium should be freely available.  All drug laws are fundamentally a political crime.  If the government wants to step in a regulate the market, that's fine, but this blanket ban on substances is just an excuse to put unpopular people into prison.
