The insane war on drugs

You know the war on drugs has totally gotten out of hand when things like this have to be done:

Steel-plated motel offers refuge in Mexico drug war

MONTERREY, Mexico (Reuters) - A motel in northern Mexico is putting steel doors on its rooms to protect guests from kidnappings and shootings in an escalating war between rival drug cartels.

Owners of the Rancho El Trueno, or Thunder Ranch, began fortifying the highway motel near Monterrey a year ago but have decided to shield all 35 rooms as drug killings have worsened in the area in recent months.

Funny, I don't remember ever hearing that motel owners had to do this when drugs were legal.

And remember, drug dealers are against legalization.
