I love me some asparagus

I do not agree with a good portion of the war on drugs and support marijuana legalization. And I do love me some asparagus.
But arguing against the drug war because of its affect on the asparagus industry, as Jeralyn Merritt does, is really reaching.
Congress has decimated the U.S. asparagus industry by waiving tariffs for Peruvian asparagus. It's a backwards attempt to buffer coca eradication with crop substitution.
