Hillary Pullls A Palin
In a statement more reminiscent of something Sarah Palin would utter, Hillary Clinton says the US can't legalize drugs because "there is just too much money in it.". Well DUH!, did she ever stop to think that the reason drug lords make so much money selling illegal drugs is because, well they're illegal in the first place. In another Palinesque moment, she also opines that legalization will lead drug dealers to "find it in their interest to addict even more young people." That is just plain bizarre to say the least,the point of legalizing drugs is to eliminate the profits for the criminal element( drug dealers), no profits, no dealers, fairly simple concept. As for the canard that legalization will lead to increased use, you only need to look as far as Portugal to see that the opposite is true.
