The war on drugs has cost the western world. Australian civil governments have ploughed huge sums of money into policing, courts, rehabilitation programs, hospitals and other medical care, social security and a raft of other things. As always the bill is footed by Australian taxpayers via the theft of wealth redistribution. And we love it! We want more to be done by our civil governments. Why? Like the Jews in Moses' day, we love slavery. The food and drink are good.
