The War on Drugs

A girl in my high school graduating class, Rachel Hoffman, was murdered. She was facing a drug charge and agreed to participate in some kind of sting with the Tallahassee police that apparently went all awry.

Hoffman, who was working with the Tallahassee Police Department's vice unit in an investigation, went missing Wednesday night near Forestmeadows Park. Investigators found her body today in rural Taylor County. Two men have been arrested in connection with her disappearance.

All this because of less than an ounce of marijuana. It's so stupid. The "war on drugs" kills more people than drugs do. It certainly kills more people than it saves.
