Operation Julie: The first shot of the war on drugs

BBC News – Operation Julie: How an LSD raid began the war on drugs

I have the legalization of marijuana in my program for New Jersey. Obviously, even if it passed, it would  a mostly symbolic gesture because marijuana would still be illegal at the federal level. I have never used any illegal drugs myself and I am somewhat ambivalent as to whether the war on drugs, as it goes today, makes any sense.

It is evident that we are not winning that war.

Legalization of marijuana is not by any means a priority within my program.
