U.S. War on Drugs “Shocks” Canadian Conscience: Borden

05-May-08 12:17 am EDT Leave a comment Go to comments

The leader of the U.S.-based organization "StopTheDrugWar.org" has it absolutely right when he says "drug prohibition today is like alcohol prohibition of the last century".  And he cites a really solid number of reasons for why the harsh drug laws in the U.S. should be repealed in the context of a Michigan woman who’s life was ruined when she sold drugs to a cop at age 19.  She ended up escaping from prison and being on the run for the next three decades, only to be arrested in Québec – which resisted her extradition back to the U.S. on the basis that the sentence for her crime "shocked the Canadian conscience".

Sometimes, I’m so proud to be Canadian.  I really am!
