If your strategy to legalize the use of plant cannabis by all people for any reason is to preach “All use is medical/wellness”, cannabinoid pharmaceuticals is where you’ll end up. There exists a paradigm for the medical / wellness use of substances, and it lies in the realm of doctors and pharmacists and prescriptions and manufactured drugs. However, there also exists a paradigm for the recreational use of substances, and it lies in the realm of taverns and bartenders and DUI laws and ID checks and home brewing.

So the foreigners who would cross the border into Holland for their cannabis will turn to the streets when the coffee shops aren’t available. The growers who supply the coffee shops can make more money selling for higher prices in the street than are found in the shops. The Dutch citizens who value their privacy will also turn away from the coffee shops and get their cannabis in the streets.

The Dutch government said yesterday that it wanted to try and ban tourists from buying cannabis in the famed “coffee shops” in the country where hash is on sale legally. The Netherlands has one of Europe’s most liberal soft drug policies and street-side coffee shops have been a popular tourist attraction in Amsterdam and border cities for decades. There has already been an effort to clamp down on what the country calls “drug tourism” in the country’s border cities near Belgium and Germany.

Is anyone surprised? You shouldn’t be. After all, this is the same Gil Kerlikowske that has said repeatedly that legalization is not in his vocabulary, and publicly stated, “Marijuana is dangerous and has no medicinal benefit.” And this is the same administration that recently nominated Michele Leonhart to head the DEA — the same Michele Leonhart who overruled the DEA’s own administrative law judge in order to continue to block medical marijuana research, and publicly claimed that the rising death toll civilians attributable to the U.S./Mexican drug war “a signpost of the success” of U.S. prohibitionist policies.

Fact 1: We have made significant progress in fighting drug use and drug trafficking in America. Now is not the time to abandon our efforts.
The Legalization Lobby claims that the fight against drugs cannot be won. However, overall drug use is down by more than a third in the last twenty years, while cocaine use has dropped by an astounding 70 percent. Ninety-five percent of Americans do not use drugs. This is success by any standards.
