Drug-war follies

Debra Saunders

My theory on the drug war is that it is popular largely because parents will support draconian sentences for other people's children (bad kids) in order to protect their own children (good kids) from doing what the bad kids do. It doesn't occur to these parents that their kids could be on the punishment end. They think they're on the side of law and order.
