I think it hypocritical to blame the push of drugs and not the customers that create that demand. There would be not war on drugs if not for the demand created by the junkies. I'd rather be known as a pusher than a junkie! Junkies are worse than pushers. Put the blame for this war on drugs where it belongs .. upon those that WANT drugs!
The only constitutional right I see that would be bent a little is the right to a fair and speedy jury trial.
I am also fully aware that the new government uses the Patriot Act to sidestep the right, so it is no longer a valid argument anyway!
Those that fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it. -- Winston Churchill
At the same time, I would also hate to derail any movements within the populace that have the potential of taking back control of our government and giving it to the people where it belongs.

Has anyone heard of a vigilante home invasion and murder of a white English speaking family?..... Can anyone see any difference in or how similar the attack on this family is to a drug lord wiping out competition, but using the vigilante label as justification for robbery and murder?..... Maybe not, but the outcome is very much the same..... Where are the drugs and money?

Yeah, the number of beneficial illegal drugs is so high that its obvious people are being led like sheep. Only because people think that these drugs are bad for you.
