WA: Seattle drug war comix

From Reason magazine, via Seattlest, cartoonist Peter Bagge takes a field trip -

The Beast That Will Not Die - Trying to Stop America's Seemingly Unstoppable "War on Drugs" -

- including this visit to Drug Court:

While it may beat going to jail, opting for this program basically means inviting the state to crawl up your ass and live there for two whole years. It's humiliating!

... Personally I find the whole thing nauseatingly paternalistic. Our courts now resemble daytime talk shows!
(hyperbole in original)
