The Drug War In a Nutshell
Thoreau explains to a friend what will happen to him if he decides to grow a marijuana plant on his property:
- Masked men with guns would break down your door.
- They would confiscate your assets.
- They would drag you away in front of your family.
- They would lock you in a cage with violent criminal gangs.
- They would do these things because if you were allowed to grow and use that plant then something bad might happen.
The only thing neglected here, as one of Thoreau’s commenters points out, is that the masked men would also shoot your dog. Other than that, that about sums it up.
