Banning More Herbs is Good Public Policy?

I wonder if there would be as many “problems” with synthetic substitutes if we were to take a long, hard look at the laws concerning marijuana in this country. According to Drugsense.org, we’ve spent a little over $2.5 trillion in the War on Drugs™ to date. That much money could go a long way towards fixing the deficit problems that are the biggest distraction number one priority in DC at the moment. I recall president Obama getting a Youtube question about this very issue a while back and calling it “worthy of debate”. Are we ready for that debate yet? Because apparently the DEA has nothing better to do than to just keep banning herbs.
