The scofflaw pigeon.
​When did Colombia's avian population fall into a desperate life of drug running? First, there was Lorenzo the Parrot, who was arrested last fall for acting as a look-out for a weed and weapons stash. Now comes word this morning that Colombian police have detained a pigeon that was trying to fly into a prison with 1.6 ounces of pot strapped to its body.

Someone get these birds a very special episode of Blossom before it's too late.

Colombian forces noticed the pigeon struggling to fly over the walls surrounding a prison in Bucaramanga, reports Britain's Sky News. They nabbed the bird as it fluttered near a house, unable to gain much height due to a white bag strapped to its back.

When police opened the bag, they found almost two ounces of pot.

"This is a new case of criminal ingenuity," General Jose Angel Mendoza, Commander of Bucaramanga Metropolitan Police, told the network.

Have you ever watched the Drug War Clock as it ticks away all our hard earned tax dollars? http://www.drugsense.org/wodcl...

Or the US Debt Clock?

Alcohol prohibition in the US run from 1919 to 1933 - Now google 'The Great Wall Street Crash' and see when that happened!

During alcohol prohibition, all profits went to enrich thugs and criminals. Young men died every day on inner-city streets while battling over turf. A fortune was wasted on enforcement that could have gone on treatment. On top of the budget-busting prosecution and incarceration costs, billions in taxes were lost. Finally the economy collapsed. Sound familiar?

If you have liberty then expect prosperity, but there’s most definitely no chance of prosperity without liberty.

To support prohibition you have to be either ignorant, stupid, brainwashed, insane or corrupt.
