Coulter's faulty argument

Coulter argues that the drug war should continue because we have welfare. The government forces her to subsidize pot heads, therefore keeping drugs illegal will minimize the amount of money that goes to people who wind up staying home smoking pot instead of getting a job and getting off welfare.

The problem with this argument is that she doesn't take into account the amount of money spent on the drug war. The drug war is welfare for the feds.

She will wind up paying more in tax money to the fed's drug war than on people who receive welfare because of drug use.
