``Fair enough. The "straight" argument had, at least, the whiff of
common sense. Or it did until you saw Reefer Madness, which
was hawked around secondary schools a generation ago. This
was an example of propaganda so inept it could only backfire.''

Voodoo Social Policy
Exorcising the twin demons, guns and drugs (Jacob Sullum, 1994)
``Coleman was seeking to discredit guns by associating them with drug
dealing. But the image works both ways. Drug warriors try to instill
fear of illegal substances by linking them to gun violence. Thomas
Constantine, director of the Drug Enforcement Administration, recently
told The Washington Times: "Many people talk about the nonviolent drug
offender. That is a rare species. There is not some sterile drug type
not involved in violence who is contributing some good to the community.
That is ridiculous. They are contributing nothing but evil." Thus,
supporters of gun control and drug control both use the threat posed by
violent, lawless people to justify banning inanimate objects. . . .''

House drug czar Barry McCaffrey during a November 1996 telephone
chat. Not quite.'' . . .

``The word "legalization" was not used. Legalizers and their
financial quartermasters know Americans are 87 percent against
legalization. So now they use camouflage phrases like "harm
reduction" -- permitting drug abuse without penalty, the first step
toward de facto legalization.
One signer told me that she did indeed favor legalization but that
