Our country needs to tolerate adult drug use. Until we do, there is no possible way to achieve the principal purpose of drug policy as stated by the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy—protection of minors. Changes in our country wrought by the massive illegal drug market, for which we must thank our anti-drug laws, cannot be overcome any other way—especially not by more criminal punishment. As things stand, we have no practical means of separating young people from the pervasive illegal dealers and small-scale user-dealers operating in every county of the nation. On the other hand with an approach that allows legally and safely manufactured drugs to be dispensed directly to adults, subject to the controls and the counseling described in my book, Kill the Drug Trade: Ending the War on Drugs in a System of Toleration, Counseling and Control we, can do just that.
PROTECTION OF OUR YOUTH FROM DRUG EXPOSURE
DRIVING TRAFFICKERS AND DEALERS OUT OF BUSINESS
THE EASING OF NATIONAL, STATE AND LOCAL BUDGETS
The book describes both the conceptual elements and implementation details that will render such a new system POLITICALLY FEASIBLE. Both Liberals and Conservatives can unite behind this market based but government regulated program.

We need to get the book out there and into the hands of the many organizations, interest groups, public intellectuals and all those who help to fashion government policy — people who can grasp the importance of its contents. The revolutionary, but highly practical idea of the system described is a game changer that will work to the benefit of every American.
