    Halfway through the Kerlikowske video and the first four callers are drug war skeptics. NICE!

  • Shap

    He got his ass handed to him, I DVR’d it.

  • great to hear Shap, Dudeman! he needs his head handed to him regularly.

  • Dudeman

    OK, finishing it now and there was only one caller that didn’t denounce or exhibit skepticism about the drug war. He was a cop.

  • claygooding

    Although the cop did not denounce the WoD,he did denounce targeting drugs that caused minimal harm and allowing the pharmaceutical drug market,which the drug warriors are supposed to be in complete control of,to grow to such epidemic proportions.
    He never came out and said marijuana,but the thought was in my mind that he was targeting marijuana law enforcement. He is and officer from MA and I believe he said Boston,where they have already decriminalized marijuana with pending legislature concerning legalization.
    His major concern was that since the drug warriors controlled the production of the drugs,how dsid they allow so much over-production of the drugs to supply the black market with them.
    Kerli answered with bullshit and hints at new tactics the “might” work.
