In reality, if 100% control of opivm went to the T-Ban, wouldn't that be a catastrophe for the US?
It goes beyond the illicit income for the intel agencies, drvgs would flood the streets of America, and all of the money would go back into the
pockets of adversarial 1s1am.
If you take off the mask, America fights for the things it wants on a very basic level; cheap fuel and a good buzz.
Umm... just one issue with your post.
drvgs would flood the streets of America
What do you think is already happening? There is not Much that could happen that would increase drug use. Even full legalization can lower drug use
(of harder "bad" drugs).
You are right though, the money wouldn't go to intel black ops.
What should happen is full legalization, of heroin, meth, pretty much everything.
Except there are some drugs out there of course which should not exist, like scopalamine (or whatever the drug is where people voluntarily do whatever
you say. Many tourists in S. America have emptied their bank accounts for total strangers who laced a drink or whatever), adrenachrome, sh# like
But all the main drugs, like cannabis, meth, coc aine, heroin, mushrooms, '___', extacy, etcetera, etcetera... the people who Want to use these
drugs, Are using these drugs. And a lot of times, people try it and get into it, JUST because they are not supposed to. Let's take away the mistique
and "cool" edginess. Let's take away this as an option for a rebellious teen to express their rebellious spirit.
So, if people realized that, if we legalized everything, the ONLY major change would be that those BILLIONS of dollars each month would go towards
infrastructure projects, paying the national debt, and a massive education campaign to combat ignorance about drugs, and also treatment for those who
There's a lot you can do when you have extra billions to spend every month. Just ask the mexican cartels.
Of course they wont be happy about this, so, the war on drugs would immediately end and the war on terror would begin...
You thought Islamic extremism was bad? These criminals have been saving up money for decades, billions of dollars, invested through front companies
and washed clean, and invested in legitimate stocks, bonds, etc to grow that money. And then, on top of that, there are just random shipping
containers buried here and there, packed full of currency.
They can bribe anyone. If you wont take the million dollars as a politician and keep drugs illegal, then someone else will happily accept that million
to do something horrible to you and your family. Heck they would do it for half a mil, so then you could hire two seperate people/teams to do even
more damage to your life.
This is one of the biggest national security threats in my opinion. The cartels already infiltrated all over in the US, with both street gangs, AND
"legitimate" moles working in law enforcement, politics, clerical government positions...
I call them the ISIS of the South, but, that may be too tame of a description.
