Good Op-ed in the New York Times. Read the whole thing, but here's a snippet from the end:
The Bush administration has escalated the war on marijuana, raiding clinics that offer medical marijuana and staging a nationwide roundup of manufacturers of drug paraphernalia. In November 2002 the Office of National Drug Control Policy circulated an "open letter to America's prosecutors" spelling out the administration's views. "Marijuana is addictive," the letter asserted. "Marijuana and violence are linked . . . no drug matches the threat posed by marijuana."
It seems that if you replace "marijuana" with "alcohol," the ONDCP might be on to something.
