NJ Gov. Chris Christie Says War On Drugs Is ‘A Fail­ure’

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) is a blowhard, but every once in a while he says something sensible, like his opinion on the war on drugs.

“The war on drugs, while well-intentioned, has been a fail­ure. We’re ware­hous­ing addict­ed peo­ple every­day in state pris­ons in New Jer­sey, giv­ing them no treatment,” said Christie.

Indeed, the war on drugs has been a colossal failure that has fueled violent crime and a private, for-profit prison industry.
