It is not a lack of understanding of the law but the law itself that stands in the way of inspired leadership. The drug laws in the U.S. are a joke. They promote corruption here and abroad. They work to encourage drug use. They fuel gangs and violence.

Federal drug czar Lee P. Brown, returning from top-level meetings in Bolivia, Venezuela and Peru, on Tuesday claimed "positive developments" in the fight against drug production there, but the specifics he cited presented a mixed picture at best.
