Not only are people in prison for drugs, but we can't keep drugs from getting into our prisons. When you think of that fact, that we can't keep drugs out of our prisons, it really makes you question our approach to the war on drugs. If we can't prevent drugs from entering our prisons, how can we expect to prevent drugs from crossing our boarders and entering our country.
I'm not saying we should give up the war on drugs and open the boarders, but it makes we question if we're using the most efficient approach to trying to reduce drug use in the country
Too bad the republicans think drugs are a "Moral" issue and think it is the job of the goverment to enforce morals.
and yet, cigarettes are still legal???
Let's not pretend that the War on Drugs is a partisan issue.
Our government (Britain) are complete hypocritical cunts when it comes to weed, they say that there's no medicinal quality but give GWpharma a monopoly to make and sell Sativex
Stop being so naive. War on drugs is not kept going strong because it makes sense or to "protect the children". It's there because it makes a lot of people a lot of money: private prisons, lawyers, judges, police officers, guards, wardens, BANKS, funds for covert operations, extra money for spies, you name it. I mean they can't be THAT incompetent. There are a LOT more drugs flooding the streets than when the "war" started. Funny too that heroin in Afghanistan flourished way more since the Taliban were ousted.
If drugs were legal there would be an immense economic shift and many jobs would be lost, snif. And think of the mafia, gangs, and those poor gentle Mexican cartels too. What would they do then? Think of their children!!!!
