Let me apologize for the gruesome and graphic photo here. This is one of hundreds law enforcement officers have sent me to show just what’s going on in our border towns. I used this photo because it’s of poor quality compared to the other photos and videos that show this sickening horror fueled by our American Drug War. If you are shocked, that was my intention because we as a country have the power to stop this carnage. We must stop this now.
Washington, DC—With so many hundreds of billions of dollars wasted on the so called Drug War America’s addiction for narcotics is stronger than ever.
The forced treatment programs for those addicts arrested just don’t work. For treatment to work it must come as a result of desire by the addicted to get cured. Prison has proven to be counterproductive since all the likeminded addicts are together and exchange ideas on furthering their drug activities.
The real victims are not the addicts. They are the thousands murdered every year by criminals committing crimes so they can pay the Drug War fueled extreme prices for the banned substances. The other victims are the taxpayers, businesses damaged by crime and the vast underground cash drug economy.
The worst people from the drug countries invaded our borders to profit, murder, and exploit the conditions the Drug Prohibition has delivered.
The Drug War is a solid example of how good intentions bring unexpected results. The only people that benefit are the Drug Lords and Drug Czars.
Because of government failure Mexico needs the Drug War for their economy. Mexico would have failed long ago without the constant flow of cash and jobs related to narcotics. At the same time American government officials have profited handsomely with government contractors who are also political campaign contributors raiding our treasury.
Narcotics not used for under the direction of medical providers should be deregulated. The cost to addicts will drop to that of sugar or coffee. The bloodshed will end, and the criminal organizations will fold. The flow of criminals into the United States will dramatically decrease without the illegal drug trade.
Narcotics enforcement here should simply be through zoning laws and existing laws for protection of children, public intoxication or impaired driving.
If there was any data at all that showed the Drug War reduced demand by Americans there might be justification for this crusade. The exact opposite is true as the demand and prices have increased along with the Drug Holocaust happening today along the Mexican Border.
A side note: For those who don’t remember or never knew America West Airlines exists today because of the drug smuggling efforts and invested profits of four founding airline pilots. They were apprehended and sent to Club Fed but their airline continued.
