I agree with the guest editorialregarding the war on drugs: it has been the most self-destructive approach to a problem. One only has to look at the way in which the “war” has damaged more lives than it has saved, distorted our criminal justice system, and levied untold costs upon those of us who must pay the taxes to support the ongoing failure and the endless destruction of human lives and families.

We can be more creative than a knee-jerk use of “war” in addressing our human problems. Thank you for supporting this guest opinion.
