Drug war wisdom from Sir Richard Branson

Again, Sir Richard Branson, one of the planet’s most intelligent and wealthiest humans, advocates against the drug war, this time at Huffington-Post.

“The U.S. currently spends no less than $51 billion — per year — on the war on drugs. That’s double what Apple profited last year. It’s a horribly depressing number when you think how far even a fraction of that money would have gone if invested in prevention and rehabilitation efforts.”
