True, but for those who can profit from it, it's a massive success!

Old news is old. Then again, this report might actually wake up the politicians in Ottawa.

It's a great success if your goal is to restrict civil liberties!

Yea, well when was intelligence every used to drive policies?  We don't need studies to tell us that Cannabis is the debbils weed that makes...oh, never mind.

Just because it's the right thing to do means that there will be another twenty years of BullCrap as they decide "What it all means".  Pants-wetting prohibitionist cowards.  Fark Them all with a rough sawn 6" x 6" pole

What do you mean a failure? It has been a huge success. It has driven the price of drugs up, given the US an excuse to militarize their national, state, and local police force, and given hard working enterprising young men and women jobs in a thriving market.

It's not like we don't have other useless futile wars to waste our time and money on.

If we used the money we spend on the war on drugs and the war on terror we could probably win the war on poverty.
