DEA Speaks Out Against Legalization

Executive Branch or Legislative? You decide after reading the DEA Publication, "Speaking Out Against Drug Legalization". This 2003 publication is available on-line. An excerpt:

The Legalization Lobby claims that the “European Model” of the drug problem is successful. However, since legalization of marijuana in Holland, heroin addiction levels have tripled. And Needle Park seems like a poor model for America.


The Legalization Lobby claims that America’s prisons are filling up with users. Truth is, only about 5 percent of inmates in federal prison are there because of simple possession. Most drug criminals are in jail—even on possession charges—because they have plea-bargained down from major trafficking offences or more violent drug crimes.

An interesting read.
