Neither side of the drug argument is chock-full of merit. But it's worth questioning the totality of the consequences of enforcement.

How many miscarriages like that of Jose Guerena have occurred as a result of our misguided and counterproductive laws criminalizing drug use?

Without relitigating the issue reciting all of the unintended consequences, I would like to make clear that there is nothing "conservative" about invoking the federal government to control what we ingest into our bodies unless we as conservatives have departed from fidelity to the Constitution and to federalism and to the primacy of the individual as defined in the Declaration of Independence.
