What drug war?

The impetus for change in drug policy in the United States to something that actually works is way past due. The Onions satirical take in 1998 ("Drugs win drug war") makes me wince even harder that nothing has changed since the 70s.

It would be a distraction for the current administration to make an attempt, but billions could be saved by doing something, anything to be more effective.

Update: Mexico tries something new: passes decriminalization for minor drug possession as well as providing treatment for addiction.
