Us stopping weed from coming over the border is like stopping the Wehrmacht from hopping the border into France: it’s too big a border to defend against asymmetrically-effective technology. And here’s the thing: (most of) France didn’t want the Wehrmacht to make it to Paris, the same can’t be said of American drug demand.
