The negative effects of the war on drugs are not limited to the amount of money spent on attempted enforcement. There is the violent crime or drug gangs fighting over turf. There is the wear and tear on the Bill of Rights as militarized FBI and police conduct raids by smashing down doors, terrorizing home occupants withpointed guns, and kill anybody who thought to defend themselves against what they thought were home invaders. Oh yes, and the surreptitious attaching of GPS devices to track people, and the flyovers with IR detectors, and the coming wave of drone surveillance. And the RICO law travesties.
