When Forced To Justify Stupid Laws, You Realize How Stupid They Are

In this video there is a great short discussion on several topics, including The War on Drugs in the last couple minutes. But the folks at Reason.tv also cover a stupid beach law in CA and the state of gay marriage around the country.
They also make a good point when talking about stupid laws in general. When the proponents of those laws are forced to justify their existence, the real stupidity behind the law comes out. And when it comes to The War on Drugs, the failure of our drug policies is plainly evident. The violence associated with what they rightly refer to as the “War on Marijuana” is not sustainable, in terms of lives or money lost.
The more we force proponents of marijuana prohibition to justify their stance, the sillier it sounds.
