DEA and National Security

The Washington Post reports on the reorganization of the National Security Council under President Barack Obama.

The NSC will bring new agencies to the table such as DEA.

Given the centrality of opium and heroin prohibition to the Afghanistan conflict and the prohibition violence in Mexico, this makes a lot of sense.

Elevating the issue can help clarify that the intrinsic ineffectuality of drug prohibition is a serious aggravation of our national security.
