why we should continue the war on drugs

With American drug use levels essentially the same as Б and levels of drug-related violence either the same as or lower than Б those in countries like the Netherlands with liberal drug laws, public support for the War on Drugs appears to be faltering. This was most recently evidenced in the victory of major drug decriminalization initiatives in Colorado and Washington. Some misguided commentators go so far as to say the Drug War is Бa failure. Б Here, to set the record straight, are fifteen ways in which it is a resounding success: 1.

Answer 5: Hmmmm. I don't know what kind of fancy aluminum foil you've been using, Nicole, but aluminum foil gets really hot in my oven. To understand why this happens, it's good to know what "temperature" and "heat" really mean. Everything is made of molecules and atoms, and all atoms are made of a very heavy nucleus with a bunch of small electrons orbiting around it like moons. The temperature of an object tells you how fast the molecules in that object are moving. When something gets really hot, its molecules get moving around really fast. When you heat up a liquid (like water), the liquid molecules start moving so fast that they stop sticking together, and they change from a liquid into a gas (this is what happens when water boils). The same thing happens when you heat up a solid (like

And even though we know it is the truth, it still hurts and the pain can cause violent reactions. Yes, we love them dearly but there are things about them that annoy us terribly
