I agree with you regarding drugs....

...as long as we hold people responsible for their conduct while on drugs. I mean truly hold them responsible - no excuses because they're addicted, no coddling with taxpayer funded rehab. As far as traffic violations go, you have to keep in mind that if you are killed by someone speeding, running a red light, passing illegally, or whatever, you are just as dead as if you were shot by an armed robber who jumped the fence at Tijuana last night. Traffic enforcement is a valid and NECESSARY use of law enforcement assets. The War on Drugs is a total failure, but even that pales in comparison to our BIG waste of law enforcement assets, our inability to truly punish convicted felons who so richly deserve severe, long term prison sentences. We could have every single officer in the country arresting criminals, but if legislatures are going to structure light sentences, and judges go even lighter, the situation is hopeless.
