Ron Paul: States rejecting failed war on drugs

By Seth McLaughlin - The Washington Times May 10, 2013

Former Texas Rep. Ron Paul says the United States is “making progress” in rejecting the failed war on drugs by loosening state drug laws.

Mr. Paul, a 2012 presidential candidate and libertarian icon, said on his weekly radio podcast that people will eventually wake up and realize that “prohibition doesn’t work.”

“Many states now are expressing themselves, passing laws in defiance of the federal government, … and they should have the right to legalize marijuana or whatever they want,” Mr. Paul said.

Mr. Paul said that he does not endorse the use of drugs, but that it is the job of parents — not the federal government — to prevent kids from using drugs.

Almost perfect.

It would be lovely if Dr. Paul would say something like "I do not advocate the use of drugs, but this is a plant." Double brownie points if he added "A plant that has tremendous healing powers." And if he REALLY wanted to go for "the money shot" he could point out that Pharma drugs account for MOST drug-related addictions and fatalities.
But he does pretty well for a man brought up under the societal spell of "Refer Madness" and professional indoctrination into Pharma-worship.

Ron said he often reads LewRockwell.com site.
Imagine him reading sites like Infowars and NaturalNews on a daily bases.
