Carla Howell on Drugs

Shes the Peace candidate in the War on Drugs

I see the desire for small government in the rising tide that will wash away the insane War on Drugs. Drug Prohibition means obscenely high profits for pushing drugs on children. It means children joining gangs and killing each other to make huge illegal drug profits. In the War on Drugs, I am the Peace candidate. What Eugene McCarthy did to end the no-win, destructive war in Vietnam, Libertarian candidates are doing to end the Drug War.

Be scared of the Drug War more than scared of drugs

Q: The idea that drugs would be legal scares a lot of people. Why should it not scare them?

A: The War on Drugs is destroying neighborhoods and ruining families. Drug Prohibition makes it obscenely profitable to push drugs on our children. I encourage parents to find out the consequences of specific illegal drugs and tell their kids the truth: these drugs can ruin your health and your life. Everyone should be frightened of the war on drugs. Its been a terrible failure.
