L. Neil Smith's
THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE
Number 45, May 1, 1999

To the editor of The Libertarian Enterprise:

Yesterday morning (4/21, as I write this) an 11 year old boy had called in to a morning radio show. He explained that he knew exactly who to go to at his school if he wanted drugs.

According to the Office for National Drug Control Policy (http://www.whitehousedrugpolicy.gov/drugfact/budget-1.html), we are spending $17.1 billion for fiscal year 1999 on the drug war. We, the people, are spending $17.1 billion a year to make it easier for 11 year olds to score drugs.

The hosts then asked the boy if it was that easy for him to get a gun at school. He said that he probably knew who he could go to at his school to get a gun if he wanted one.

So, will someone please tell me, when prohibition is supposed to start making it harder for kids to get drugs and guns at school?
