The Drug Warrior’s Moral Equivalence

For those who doubted the intellectual rot that the Drug War has wrought on warriors’ minds, consider this remark from Paul Chabot, drug zealot from the Clinton and Bush Administrations:

When asked by HuffPost Washington Bureau Chief Ryan Grim why we keep marijuana illegal, Chabot responded: “Why do we keep heroin, LSD, prostitution, child pornography illegal?”

It’s just one long, undifferentiated parade of horribles in Chabot’s mind.

The only benefit to moral equivalence so obtuse is that it’s commensurately absurd to any reasonable person.
