Darrell Castle on Drugs
CASTLE:˙Disagree, but I am not a scientist (is one beer a gateway drug?˙ Is an aspirin for pain a gateway drug?)
A: I'm totally opposed to the war on drugs. It's not doing anything except imprison a lot of people for trivial offenses. I favor some kind of decriminalization, especially where federal laws are concerned. We have a debate in Memphis right now as to whether to fine people a small amount for marijuana possession, and that's how the war on drugs should be determined--at the local level, with local laws. But no one should go to prison for having a joint.
A: The Constitution party's official position is we don't believe in legalizing drugs. But me personally, I am an advocate of decriminalizing possession. I think it's a liberty issue and a moral issue. We should not be putting people in prison for possessing these things. There are other ways of handling it and it's causing the whole war on drugs to be a disaster.
