Freedom heals

In spite of the tendency of politicians to cling hard to the status quo, especially when a policy expands their power and control like the drug war does, here is an example of how eliminating laws that make matters worse can help society recover and get better.  Now, if only the lawmakers in the USA can learn from the Portuguese experience, as well as the states that have legalized marijuana, and totally end the war on drugs not sold by Big Pharma.  Then take this principle and apply it to every other area where government intervention has wreaked havoc in our lives.
