Dear Readers, The cultural treatment of the legality of certain drugs has ebbed and flowed over the years.  We can trace the interplay between drugs and societal mores back to the American Revolution.  The trafficking of rum and slaves, coupled with tobacco production, were the foundations of our colonial economy.  Once free from the British Empire, in the first years of the United States, the "Whiskey Rebellion" tested President Washington's ability to keep the country from fracturing over taxe...
