We have a fair number of Conservatives who read this blog. And because of that I get chided all the time about my obsession with Drug Prohibition. Fine.

I have a question for my Conservative critics. (Please. Only those of you who are dyed in the wool Conservatives answer the question. The rest may comment on other aspects of this post.)

Why did the Republicans of 1914 vote against the Harrison Narcotics Act? (the act put the Federal government in charge of opiates and cocaine).

If you can answer that question then go on to explain what has changed since then. Why do the Republicans of 2012 support it AND the UN? Republicans don’t support the UN? Look up “Single Convention Treaty” and get back to me.
