Soros’ drug demands are dangerous
In Friday's "The Soros empire" (Commentary), Jeffrey T. Kuhner hits the nail on the head. Mr. Soros' confusion about his messianic attributes is not unlike his confusion on effective drug policies.
If Mr. Soros had his way, drug legalization would not stop with marijuana. In his autobiography, "Soros on Soros," when asked about the legalization of drugs, he said, "I would establish a strictly controlled distribution network through which I would make most drugs, excluding the most dangerous ones like crack, legally available."
Someone who foolishly says legalizing marijuana for adult use "can hardly make it any more accessible to young people" either doesn't know a thing about business or just isn't telling it to you straight. Because we are talking about Mr. Soros - known the world over as a currency speculator, stock investor, businessman and even convicted felon - the latter must be the case.
If marijuana becomes legalized, it will be marketed like alcohol. Street dope dealers will not simply disappear, they will target the only customers they have left: our kids. If Mr. Soros thinks the criminals who push drugs in our neighborhoods and engage in other illegal activities such as trafficking in weapons and human beings will suddenly become respectable, law-abiding businesspeople, I have a bridge I'd like to sell him.
