Yeah, I found the link and have started watching. Given that it goes for over an hour, i'll have to find time to get through it. It's amazing enough that the experiment has been undertaken by the Portuguese, but it's even more incredible that it's not all over the news across the world. doesn't fit with the storyline, so let's just ignore the facts...

Anytime. If you are still interested in the topic check out http://www.cato.org/event.php?eventid=5887 for a video of a talk given by Glenn Greenwald about the same subject.

Scratch that - it didn't like firefox, but it works in IE. Fascinating post, and very interesting findings. Thanks!

I'm getting a blank screen when I click on your link. Is it me or you? Help me out? I'd love to read the article.

I invite all of you arguing about the harms of drug decriminalization to take a look at Portugal. In 2001 Portugal decriminalized all drugs and it "has been an unquestionable success, leading to improvements in virtually every relevant category and enabling Portugal to manage drug-related problems (and drug usage rates) far better than most Western nations that continue to treat adult drug consumption as a criminal offense," (http://www.salon.com/opinion/greenwald/2009/03/14/portugal/).

All of the statistics show impressive declines in drug use, HIV infection and show a marked increase in people seeking therapy for drug abuse. A lot can be learned from their example.

I just wanted to take a moment say and tell you I greatly appreciated your saying that. I myself have duel-citizenship with Canada and the US... almost all my family is Canadian and i've spent a very large portion of my life in Canada. While i absolutly love it and look forward to going back each year... i can't tell you how many times i've heard this... this exact thing... friends, family, classmates this gets hauled out and worked into conversation a truly bizzare number of times when people realize I'm an American... the other one... The Space Arm... A close second... It's one I usually nod and smile and insie wonder exactly why they'd even want to lay claim to that... let alone how they figure...

Anyway i agreed completely and especially with regard to your final comment "There are a lot better examples for Candians to use."...

Cheers
Jan

A good retort to Gutfeld, until near the end. I'm Canadian and I am getting tired of Canadians bringing up the War of 1812 and the burning of Washington. Yeah, we burnt the capital of the United States to the ground... almost 200 years ago. And it wasn't like it was really Canada, it was thousands of seasoned British veterans led by experienced commanders who took along some Canadian provincials to fight an inexperienced and smaller American army supported by relatively unorganized militias (very few of whom left their homes to fight on the campaigns).

There are a lot better examples for Canadians to use.

P.S., we didn't burn it down in 1812, it was actually burnt down in 1814, during the War of 1812 (which lasted 3 years).
