Ron Paul Decries 'War On Drugs'

Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul is decrying the "war on drugs" in a speech to supporters in Washington state. The Texas congressman told more than 1,000 people at a rally Thursday night in Vancouver, Wash., that Americans should be able to make their own decisions on such matters. Voters in Washington are likely to decide this year whether to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. Paul was spending Thursday campaigning in Idaho and Washington and has rallies planned Friday in Richland and Spokane. He is expected to hit most of Washington's media markets before the state's nonbinding caucuses on March 3/Fox News. More here. (AP photo: Ron Paul waves to Twin Falls crowd Thursday)

Also: Ron Paul will rally in Moscow at 4 pm,” but those of you who are closer to Moscow should know that Paul’s appearance is at 4 pm in the Student Union Building Ballroom on the University of Idaho campus.

Question: What do you think about our decades-old "War on Drugs"?
