War on Drugs: Now the War on Christmas, Too?

YouTube: Santa — busted for cocaine while he, the elves and the reindeer are out for a binge spin. You have to wonder if Rudolph tipped off the cops after a failed intervention.

Seriously, though, the ACLU is asking folks interested in drug policy reform to raise the issue for consideration at Change.gov. Their "open for questions" section is a great place to raise the issue — and any other governmental reform or renewal question you might have.

I wanted to be certain the public commentary didn’t get lost in the holiday shuffle in case folks wanted to weigh in on this. Or any of the other myriad of problems we’d all like to see tackled — and well — in upcoming months.
