Your tax dollars at work

It's so hard not to be jaded with the goons we have running DC:

“Drug warriors scored a virtual victory after the 2006 U.S. elections when they hurriedly extended the War on Drugs to a psychoactive substance previously exempt: nepetalactone, the main psychoactive ingredient in catnip.”

What harm is there in catnip? Here comes the science: “This psychosexual reaction lasts for 5-15 minutes and cannot be evoked again for an hour or more after exposure.” Were there humans who were somehow abusing catnip? The feline receptors that react strongly to catnip lie in an organ exclusive to cats, yet the chemists say catnip may affect humans like a mild herbal sedative akin to valerian root.

Let's just say that a war on catnip will lead to some pretty irate felines in my household. Tip o' the hat to the blogger known as catnip (who previously had no knowledge of the GOP plot to start a war against her).
