'This Is Working': Portugal, 12 Years after Decriminalizing Drugs

Twelve years ago, Portugal eliminated criminal penalties for drug users. Since then, those caught with small amounts of marijuana, cocaine or heroin go unindicted and possession is a misdemeanor on par with illegal parking. Experts are pleased with the results.

There's no valid reason why we as a country couldn't do this, but from the prezinut on down the vast majority of those in power find it entertaining to hammer drug users and let banksters escape prosecution.

It's both disgusting and disheartening.
