Which of course do not work, except in the perverted sense of working for those who profit by them. We have more people using more drugs than ever before. No law can do anything about this. As Spinoza observed some 300 years ago: "All laws which can be violated without doing anyone an injury are laughed at... And men of leisure are never deficient in the ingenuity needed to enable them to outwit laws framed to regulate things which cannot be entirely forbidden/' And» he added, f,He who tries to determine everything by law will foment crime rather than lessen it." Amen. Addicts must commit, crimes to get money for dirt-cheap drtigs made expensive by the laws (legal heroin costs only pennies a dose); narcs perjure themselves daily to make cases and daily lake money not to make them; researchers tailor their findings 10 please their government employers; and the difficulty of enforcing laws where all violations are between consenting parties has made Swiss cheese of the Bill of Rights. To mention only some of the most obvious crimes incited by the drug laws.

Less apparent, perhaps, but a more damning example of sheer pigheadedness or organized greed is our failure to learn the simple lesson that tastes cannot be legislated. The prohibition against alcohol was a long and costly fiasco, but instead of drawing the obvious conclusion that people won't obey laws regulating their private conduct, the government started a growth industry in narcotics law enforcement. . Nothing succeeds like fail tire. T-men signed on for the big push the way vaudeville comics flocked to the talkies after the silenis died. Instead of common sense, we got Harry Anslinger.

As for the future, marijuana will probably be legal within a few years, and there is increasing pressure lo examine the myths surrounding cocaine. But this is no more a signal that drug law enforcement will eventually fade away than a hanged man's erection is a sign of life. The Drug Enforcement Administration will remain in business just as the Pentagon does after a war has ended. Whatever decriminalization lakes place will represent nothing more than an acknowledgement thai so many respectable people are using a certain drug that is no longer politically profitable to go on trying to arrest them. It isn't likely to result, from understanding that drug laws can't work.. Legalize all the current illicit drugs and ihe prohibitionists will draw up a new lisl~ There is no shortage of candidates. Alcohol has led to more addiction than all the other drugs combined. Cigarettes cause cancer.. The game won't end until the futility of attempting to legislate morality is apparent to even the Neanderthals.
