Richard Branson says it's time to end the war on drugs

Just as prohibition of alcohol failed in the United States in the 1920s, the war on drugs has failed globally. Over the past 50 years, more than $1 trillion has been spent fighting this battle, and all we have to show for it is increased drug use, overflowing jails, billions of pounds and dollars of taxpayers’ money wasted, and thriving crime syndicates. It is time for a new approach.

perhaps we should all write him and ask him to support Ron Paul with a donation to RevPac

Isn't he a foreign national?


Yes he is British

He runs the Virgin Group which creates a lot of jobs in USA, and he has a vested interest in the healthy future of our nation. He is right on all accounts in this editorial, and I applaud him for putting himself out there on the side of freedom. Freedom is good for business and he is a businessman.

With liberty and justice for all...who can afford it.

Hopefully Branson can

Hopefully Branson can financially help the movement. It's great that more and more people are waking up to the absolute failure of the War on Drugs everyday.
