Different people will react to these photos differently. Most STR readers will see it as illustrating how wasteful and harmful the whole war on drugs is and that it needs to be ended. Govt apologists will see these photos as evidence that drugs are big business and that they they need to take the drug war to the next level. But whatever your reaction, these are powerful photos that depict how big the war on drugs has gotten.
