a high enough percentage of
users to make the law a real threat,
although we do catch enough
to seriously overburden
our legal system."

Make what "law" a real threat ? Real law is not a threat ! What legal system ? In Amerika, exists a Police State system of tyranny.

    If he meant " to seriously overburden our legal system" that our jails are full to overflowing with non violent people, then he is correct.

    Forget about overburdening the courts, the property seizures is what it is all about -- that's where 'law enforcement' gets it money. Good luck trying to get it back even if you are innocent. Legalized theft.
