I seem to recall there was a lot of mocking and sneeering around here — and certainly elsewhere — when the Drug Policy folks were running ads linking drug use to terrorism. Well it turns out that drug use funded the Madrid bombing.
Yes, yes, yes: I understand that drug legalization advocates can claim this as evidence as to why we should de-criminalize drugs. Fine. But, that doesn’t change the fact that the drug-use-helps-pay-for-terrorism argument is essentially valid.
