The Cocaine War

June 25, 1989

We should have a national debate on the pros and cons of legalizing drugs. If, after reviewing the choices, the people begin to react favorably to legalization, the politicians will be able to respond.

Decriminalization does not condone drug use but, instead, recognizes the great peril that drugs are to all of society, especially to the youth of this nation. It will eliminate profit and reduce drug demand by providing money for prevention and treatment.
