"You can at least let sick people have marijuana because it's helpful. Why don't we handle the drugs like we handle alcohol?. Alcohol's a deadly drug. The real deadly drugs are the prescription drugs, they kill more people than the illegal drugs.I think the federal war on drugs is a total failure. The drug war is out of control. I fear the drug war, because it undermines our civil liberties and magnifies our problems on the borders. We spent a trillion dollars on this war and, believe me, the kids can still get the drugs. It just hasn't worked."
