Abstract:     
This article examines some of the erosions of civil liberties caused during the first decade of the 'War on Drugs.' The article discusses some of the history of the suspension of civil liberties and the Bill of Rights during various wars throughout American history and compares them with the 'War on Drugs.' The goal of the article is to show that by phrasing social issues in terms of 'war,' civil liberties are put in jeopardy.
