The War on Drugs

War on Drugs

The American government exists at the consent of the governed. Americans are the beneficiaries of a long liberal democratic tradition which places individual liberty at the height of our value system. This liberty has given us peace and prosperity at levels which were completely unknown to our ancestors. The War on Drugs is a direct threat to that long and illustrious legacy.

The War on Drugs envisions individual Americans as government property. By self-medicating, American citizens are seen as damaging that government property.

The United States government then spends billions of taxpayer dollars per year to protect that government property from the American citizenry.

I am not government property and I object to being taxed to pay for a government program which treats me as if I were.

Drug Policy Alliance

The Drug Policy Alliance envisions a just society in which the use and regulation of drugs are grounded in science, compassion, health and human rights, in which people are no longer punished for what they put into their own bodies but only for crimes committed against others, and in which the fears, prejudices and punitive prohibitions of today are no more. Our mission is to advance those policies and attitudes that best reduce the harms of both drug misuse and drug prohibition, and to promote the sovereignty of individuals over their minds and bodies.
