A sample of his work from “Keeping Drugs Away from Your Children”
It’s a sad, indeed tragic, fact that Nixon’s war on drugs has actually made it 7 times MORE likely for your child to come into contact with illegal drugs. The reasons are very straight forward: As the government increases the criminal penalties associated with prohibition, the price of various illegal drugs is increased. The increased price means greater profits for drug dealers. These greater profits attract more and more dealers, and especially, young teenagers.
