"Oh, now you're John Kennedy?" Even Ryan knew that was dangerous territory, time to retreat!

I want to add one to your list, TomCat. The War on Drugs. The billions of dollars wasted, the people slaughtered, the lives ruined for using marijuana and then sent to prison. The years lost in developing marijuana for proper use in fighting so many diseases, cancer, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, seizures, and on and on, goes the list. The US government is not unaware, they own the patents for the cannabinoids (not THC) found only within the marijuana plant. The other result of the war on drugs, the price and restrictions on ordinary pain relief for those who need the help.
