Softening of Patriot Act Support

A good article at Reason by David Weigel: When Patriots Dissent —
Surprise: Standing up to the PATRIOT Act can be good politics.

The article gives a nice background of the erosion of support for the Patriot Act, and while the drug war isn’t mentioned, it’s relevant.
The Patriot Act was touted as a way to apply drug warrior tactics to terrorism, and then, behold, the new provisions were often primarily used to give drug warriors more weapons to use against Americans’ rights.
