Legalize all drugs, marijuana, cocaine, heroin, etc. Treat drugs like tobacco and alcohol. The "War" on drugs is no more effective than prohibition in the 1920s/1930s. It has been lost. All it does is give the drug cartels a tremendous boost. Release all the prisoners who have been convicted of using. Use the money saved on rehabilition programs. Insitiute mandatory blood tests for anyone suspected of driving under the influence. This will put the cartels out of the drug business just like it took organized crime out of the booze business. Once the novelty wears off, it will beno big deal. Remember that all this stuff used to be legal.

In his column of March 12, 2013, my beloved friend wrote on the issue of legalized marijuana in the state of Colorado. On his radio show, he justifiably bemoaned readers of his column who had written comments questioning his sanity and their relationship over this one issue despite years of being Prager groupies. I will not do any of that. But for only the second time in our long relationship, Mr. Prager, you are dead wrong on a topic … but I still love you.
