How to lower prices of consumer goods…

Over at TownHall, Debra Saunders writes about failed Plan Colombia:

The New York Times reported last year that anti-drug planes have to fumigate three times as much land as they did in 2002 to kill the same amount of coca.
And for what? An endgame that produces more cocaine than the world wants — and at cheaper prices? […]
“Can you tell me any other product that has gone down in price in the last few years?” Curtis asked — and you can’t include technological products that change. Think milk or bread or beef.
Those consumer prices are not falling. It takes a Washington-born government program — designed to drive up the price of cocaine — to drive down the cost of cocaine. The one thing drug warriors never demand of an American anti-drug program is that it actually work.
