I wish Michael Chertoff had told us his gut feeling was about pot brownies, or something like that. then we wouldn’t have gotten all worrried about Al Qaeda, and maybe would have been prepped to support the new front in the war on terror, the marijuana fields of Northern California. From the Record Searchlight:

The nation’s top anti-drug official said people need to overcome their “reefer blindness” and see that illicit marijuana gardens are a terrorist threat to the public’s health and safety, as well as to the environment.

John P. Walters, President Bush’s drug czar, said the people who plant and tend the gardens are terrorists who wouldn’t hesitate to help other terrorists get into the country with the aim of causing mass casualties. Walters made the comments at a Thursday press conference that provided an update on the “Operation Alesia” marijuana-eradication effort.

“Don’t buy drugs. They fund violence and terror,” he said.

I’m not a militant about making marijuana legal or something, but it is pretty obvious that the War on Terror Drugs is not working, even to distract the country from the failure of the Bush Administration to wage successful war on real terrorists.
