    Jason Kersten in GQ:

    The Feds can't see them. Or hear the digging. They don't know how many there are or where they are headed. They know only that the tunnels are coming. And when they cross our border, when the soil gives way and the drugs start flowing, it's already too late. Jason Kersten uncovers a battleground hidden beneath our feet

    Should we just have a running marijuana thread?

    This must be how all those "headless bodies" ended up in the Arizona desert. [/janbrewer]

    It would have to be a walking marijuana thread. Running requires too much ambition.

    I still wonder if there's a booming industry for people planning a five-hour layover in Denver for a marijuana tour. Get a van, paint it like Scooby Doo's, drive downtown, get high, back to the airport. $75 round trip a person.

    Or it could be an SUV with a driver who looks like Nancy Botwin.

    This is basic economics; you want to stop the drug wars? Stop buying it, reduce demand. Oh yeah, middle America (not the ghettos) actually pays the bulk of the drug trade. But no one wants to address that problem.

    At one point there was a lot of incentive for people to not buy it. Then we caved to all the bleeding hearts who cried when we put people in prison.

    Quoted for posterity: the problem with this country is that we have too FEW people in prison on pot charges.

    58 percent of Americans are in favor of legalizing marijuana.
    If it was a presidential election, that percentage would be of historic proportions.
