Here's an op-ed from an Obamanian drug policy adviser, Kevin Sabet.
What we here at Blogger Central find most interesting is ... this thing is published on CNN. The only thing that would be more amazing would be if it were on MSNBC. But if it were, it wouldn't be noticed. Does anyone watch MSNBC any more?
