Contrarian Drug War Justice

The Drug War Rant has posted a list of policies he would enact if he were the Contrarian-King of the U.S. A brief sample of my favorites:

  • DEA agents who investigate doctors for prescribing pain medication must have other DEA agents perform any medical procedures (like heart transplants and brain surgery) that are needed by the agents. After all, if DEA agents know so much about medicine...

  • Law enforcement officers who are part of no-knock drug task forces must publicly list their names and addresses. Ordinary citizens are allowed to wander through their home between the hours of 11 pm and 4 am and look through their drawers.

  • Any laws passed that have criminal penalties are automatically infinitely retroactive for those who voted for (or signed) the law. This means, for example, that any Congressmen who vote for enhanced drug possession penalties would be immediately liable under that law for any drugs they took when they were young.

Go read the rest, it's pure gold.

Here is a question that I would like to ask a lot of politicians. Have you ever smoked pot or did any other illegal drugs. If you have than do you believe that you should have been caught and are you willing to do the time? If the answer is no, than I would ask them why should anyone else have to the time?
