Extremely entertaining Rachel Maddow segment which starts with describing how certain states, since Prohibition, select which wines and liquors are sold there. She then goes on to discuss how weed, another recreational drug, is wreaking havoc on the states vs federal laws now conflict since several states just voted to legalize pot. She ends with an impassioned plea from a Maryland law enforcement agent to end the war on drugs. It's expensive (trillions!), doesn't work and has done nothing but pack prisons--which cost taxpayers a fortune. I'd be very happy if we admitted that we've lost the war on drugs. Or at least weed.
