State of Wisconsin secondary Archives: on Drugs


Phil Anderson: End the war on drugs & legalize marijuana

Q: Do you support or oppose "Marijuana is a gateway drug"?

A: ONLY BECAUSE ITS ILLEGAL. If Mountain Dew was illegal, IT would be a gateway drug. When alcohol was illegal, IT was a gateway drug. End the War on Drugs, which is aimed at people of color. Reduce incarceration rates by treating drug addiction as an illness, not a crime.
