Of course the big time lefties have done plenty of damage too.
But “conservatives” have often cheered the drug war started by President Nixon and given new life by President Reagan, to the detriment of the rule of law. Our Constitution was written to limit the efforts of the federal government. Drug regulation under the Constitution, is something relegated to the states. The DEA is about the last thing the founding fathers would have ever wanted for this country. Yet, many who have trumpeted the Constitution and its limits on federal power have continued to support the “War on Drugs” and other federal efforts to legislate morality.
George Will says that this needs to change.
