If the comments on our recent posting of Rob Morris' YouTube video are any indication, the War on Drugs is a divisive topic among our viewers. This is not surprising as it is a political, economic, social and racial issue that is complicated and has few clear alternatives that a majority of Americans would agree on, even if they agree that it isn't working (which itself doesn't appear to be a consensus). Given the power of the status quo, particularly with regards to government initiatives, this lack of clear alternatives suggests that the War on Drugs is here to stay, regardless of the government's nomenclature du jour.
However, despite that fact that changing the nation's policy on drugs is an uphill battle, people have not stopped trying to do so. With that thought in mind, we are happy to be able to bring part II of Rob's video series The Drug War Is Awesome! to our readers below. In addition, for anyone who is interested, Rob is now on Twitter, and can provocatively be found at TheFederalGovt.
