Don't EVEN Talk About It!

Ending the War on Drugs, that is. Scary stuff.

Seems the City Council of El Paso, Texas is fed up with the violence with its sister city on the border, Juarez, Mexico. They unanimously passed a resolution which included asking the federal government to at least look at the possibility of ending the War on Drugs as a way of stopping the violence.

The Mayor of El Paso vetoed the resolution. Pretty scary when a resolution is vetoed because it suggests we even discuss ending the Drug War.

Thanks to Radley Balko at The Agitator blog for the story.
