Reuters is Right about some things on the Right

It's about time that the powers to be come to realize what those of us in the trenches have been saying for decades: the war on drugs is a farce and cannot be won because it's not a real war and because too many people [cops, judges attorneys, rehabs, prison administrators and employees, probation officers, etc.] profit from the supposed "fight," and warehousing people in prison for most things is often counter-productive [as well as a cultural problem, considering we incarcerate a higher percentage of our population than any other country, yet loudly boast enlightenment to an increasingly disbelieving world].  This Reuters piece, somewhat about Christie, is right on, but decades late.  Then too, enlightenment late is better than none at all.
