End The War(s)!

Excerpted from a post by Jeff Yager, one of our friends at Advocates of Liberty:

"One of the major news stories from the last week is that Barack Obama has decided that he will end the war in Iraq. Well, not really. Removing "combat" troops in Iraq is at least a step in the right direction, even if they are baby steps. This policy announcement mirrors what appears to be his stance in another war going on that's closer to home and perhaps claiming even more lives than the one in the Middle East: The War on Drugs.

"Last week, Eric Holder announced that the raids on medical marijuana users would end. This could mark the beginning of the end for marijuana prohibition. However, if Obama's Iraq War timeline is any indication at the speed at which he will be delivering his wonderful change, then I wouldn't go looking for that new bong on Ebay quite yet."
