    and kind of scary. the incarceration industry is a big business, with lots of dollars and jobs (many unionized) at stake. crime is good for business, and the more things you criminalize, the better business becomes.

    these people will not easily let go of those dollars and jobs, they'll fight tooth & nail to keep them. don't expect any sanity in the "drug war" anytime soon.

    and freedom is told to take a walk.

    Drug war hysteria ruining Nyquil for everybody is truly classic...a real knee-slapper.  

    Kindergarten governing at its worst....an extremely small segment of the population uses Nyquil to get high (their god-given right if you ask me, but beside the point)so now nobody can get their nightime, coughing, sneezing, aching, so you can rest medicine.  aka Little Johnny ate a crayon so now the whole class can't use crayons.
