Drug War Belongs in Dustbin of History

"We can’t solve a problem without knowing its origin. To solve America’s drug problem, we have to know the history of the drug war.

The drug war did not start with Richard Nixon. It wasn’t a Republican idea, or a traditional idea. The drug war was launched before the First World War by utopian Progressive Democrats.

Woodrow Wilson signed the first federal drug law in 1914, the Harrison Act. It was intended as a weapon against opiate-using “Orientals.” Some doctors supported it because it granted them a prescription monopoly. At first, the Harrison Act only increased the cost of opiates to users. But soon the doctors fell victim as well, as the Harrison Act was used to imprison pain doctors and even those who ran opiate-addiction treatment clinics."

Drunk Lives Matter: News Wrap Up of Uber Activism This Weekend

On Friday night, after Christopher David turned himself in to the authorities and was released on $5,000 PR bail, several peaceful protesters stood outside Daniel Street Tavern in Portsmouth to let people know about the situation pertaining to Uber.

BREAKING NEWS: Pro-Uber Driver Has Warrant Out for Arrest, May Miss 1st Child's Birth

This just in from Christopher David, FSP early mover and civil disobedience activist who has continued to drive for Uber in the City of Portsmouth, despite the city council's ban. You can read more about the background to his story here.

Says Christopher:

Portsmouth has a warrant out for my arrest.

Officer Andre Wassouf -- the police officer from THIS VIDEO -- called me two weeks ago to inform me that I may be guilty of a class B felony for posting this audio recording of the bouncer (even though I was on a public road, in my car, and he was on a public sidewalk with no expectation of privacy). Bouncer called the police about it, and Wassouf said he would check to see if the bouncer wanted to press charges; if so, he would call back when a warrant was done. Wassouf recently called again to inform me that he has completed my ARREST WARRANT. Wants me to turn myself in.

AG Sues Tiny NH Town Over Letting Parents Choose Best School for Their Kids

The issue for the tiny town of Croydon vs. Big Bad Brother has been heating up for some time now. Read more here, here, and here, where the Independent Institute writes:

"Children are not creatures of the state, and public school officials in Croydon should be commended for their efforts to put the best interests of children ahead of petty, parochial politics."

Yesterday, the New Hampshire AG's office mailed paperwork to the Sullivan County Superior Court in Newport filing a complaint from the N.H. Department of Education for a preliminary and permanent injunction against the Croydon School District. Read more at the Union Leader.

NH: Wealthiest State in the Developed World

Yesterday, Ryan McMaken, editor of Mises Daily and The Austrian wrote a blog at Mises Wire comparing Sweden and Germany to American states, finding that if they were to become U.S. states, these countries would be amongst the poorest.

This is interesting, but not half as mind-blowing as the fact that New Hampshire, according to his data, is the wealthiest state in the developed world, beating Luxembourg, Norway, and Switzerland.

Why would this be? Perhaps the NH Advantage has something to do with it? Or maybe it is a combination of the hundreds or reasons why New Hampshire has become such an attractive destination to discerning individuals?
