Have a documentary on the DVR from some WACKOS. "Hooked: Illegal Drugs and How They Got That Way" talks about bureaucracy run amok, Major governmental and press lies, lives lost and ruined... the usual.
All to toss the Mexicans... at least in the beginning...
Somebody should do something about the History Channel!
16 arrests, didn't mention how many convictions. Betcha damned few. How about this, stop wasting the money, make "illegal drugs" legal, take all the money out of it and see what happens. Tax the crap out of it, giving money to the real gang of thieves and be done with it. I mean prohibition has such a great history in this country. But wait, they want to ban tobacco too, hmmm, bet that will help a lot...BTW, I live in a part of the country where the HA are not and basically give a rats a$$ about them...
Again, getting rid of the DEA and all the other Major infrastucture dedicated to this "War" in addition to what... HALF the Prison population of the U.S. (we lead the World!) will yield Billions and Billions of dollars of REDUCED costs.
How much graft, corruption and illegal activities would this move would stop, in the gov?
I wouldn't see any major costs associated with legalization that we don't have now. Why give the gov money to waste? This move could result in a surplus allowing our taxes to be lowered not raised.
Amen. At least for Pot. If everyone can grow their own, I'm thinking the market collapses, and assholes quit planting the stuff in our National Forests and threatening people who are just trying to take a hike.
For the rest, I dunno, maybe we need a club to get people with a real problem to get into rehab. Get busted again, go TWICE as long. It would cost a lot, but I'm guessing not too many people would want to go a second, or third time. A friend of mine went through that. They monitor what music you listen to, don't let you make phone calls, and make your life pretty tough if you don't participate in group. It saved his life.
