Every so often the War on Some Drugs decides to lie about one of the ones it is currently at peace with. E-cigarettes are not a tobacco product. (Not that I’m in favor of them. Nicotine is the one substance I abused that I wouldn’t do again, and probably the one that did me the most harm.)

The way to have fewer abortions is to give good sex education, to make birth control freely available, and to empower women to say no if they don't want sex and to demand birth control if they do. Anyone who finds that approach unacceptable thinks that there is something more important than minimizing abortion, such as controlling people’s, and particularly women’s, sex lives.

Prescription opiate addiction is a major problem, and the government is reacting the way governments do, by forbidding and cracking down. A study says that cannabis can seriously reduce the use of opiates by chronic pain sufferers. Is there something more important than minimizing opiate addiction?

DEA steals a man's life savings because they can. Do I have to tell you what color he is?

Treating Sudafed as a narcoterrorist weapon of mass destruction has surprisingly made more business for the Mexican drug cartels. It's a naïve domestic meth, but I think you'll be amused by its presumption.

Thanx to Radley Balko
