This year the federal government will spend about $51 billion on the war on drugs. Think that's a waste? This year marks the 40th anniversary of the war on drugs – a critical time to shine a spotlight on 40 years of failed policy. Since the war on drugs was declared, it has destroyed lives, wasted resources and treated responsible citizens as serious criminals.

For 50 years current drug policies have failed everyone, everywhere but public debate is stuck in the mud of fear and misinformation. Everyone, even the UN Office on Drugs and Crime which is responsible for enforcing this approach agrees -- deploying militaries and police to burn drug farms, hunting down traffickers, and imprisoning dealers and addicts – is an expensive mistake.
