It's common knowledge. Tylenol 3, Vicodin, Percocet, Fentanyl, Morphine, Dilaudid, etc... are legally prescribed by doctors, and picked up for a few bucks at a pharmacy. People go from doctor, to doctor, and so on to get as many prescriptions as possible for consumption or dealing to other addicts. It's estimated that 80% of heroin addicts started with a prescription. The opioid crisis isn't coming from Mexico. It is true that most of our heroin comes from Mexico, but that's not the root of the problem, nor is it exported at a rate anywhere near that of marijuana or coc aine.

Whether it is legal or not doesn't stop it from killing people. Which I'm sure is your point..


That's exactly my point. I've known two people personally who've died from it. One from OD, the other from withdrawal from trying to quit. It's TERRIBLE stuff.

Sadly, that is also one of the biggest barricades to people getting free from it, is withdrawal dangers, with hardly any methods of detoxifying the body without having a ton of money to be admitted to a detox center.

That needs to change in a bigger way.

Too bad all those narcotics just switched hands is all for resale! Everyone that has worked in the Drug War long enough and pays attention knows it's ridiculous! Military controlled narcotics is just redistributed under control through a black budget.
It's not noted, accounted for and our mafia like shadow (deep state) government black projects get a stimulus. Now they can do more unregulated things to us all and line the pockets of that which black market purchases will fund!
I have a air traffic patrolmen in the family retired that knew back in the 80's new england would be hurting without good DEA employees if they didn't know how to get them good weed! Humboldt County was just one place he knew to source from and send incognito parcels across this nation.

I won't out him because he's retired now and was working at a job he retired from and woke up on too.

Those Drug Kingpins will be wiping those Migrants out soon I bet. They're cutting into their profits, and you know what they do when that happens.

Human Rights groups are lambasting President Trump for keeping the migrants in Mexico, where Drug Cartels can get at them.


Human rights advocates have voiced their disapproval of President Trump's hardline immigration policies, including the Remain in Mexico plan. They say leaving migrants in Mexican border towns, which have seen intense violence as drug cartels fight each other for smuggling routes into the U.S., are likely to endanger people.

“We have not seen a specific proposal, but any policy that would leave individuals stranded in Mexico would inevitably put people in danger,” Lee Gelernt, an ACLU attorney whose team has successfully sued the Trump administration over its immigration initiatives, told The Post.

Maybe I missed something. Didn't the migrants enter Mexico voluntarily? It's not President Trump's fault that they have placed themselves in harm's way.

I could see this potentially having a positive effect. Anything that helps to stop the flow of drugs and the crime that comes along with them will have a positive impact on American society.


But liberals will still fight against any defense of the border.
In order to help the many. Some drugs and guns may get through.

Some citizens might be murdered , but it's the price liberals are willing to pay to help the many

Even though our military is not at the border to reduce drug trafficking, any reduction in trafficking is welcome, and saves lives of U.S. citizens.

Really? Do you actually think some crack addicts got up this morning, went down to the corner and got "Sorry, some troops are on the Mexican border so we're all out. Maybe try tomorrow...".

Cocaine is like the Spice in Dune. It must flow! It is pure capitalism, where there is demand, there will be supply. And the demand aint changed. You put some restriction on manufacture or distribution and the market adjusts. Prices fluctuate, suppliers adjust their outputs.

You make the border slightly more difficult to cross, then the logistics directors will adjust their strategies - more boats, more submarines, more planes more tunnels. The product is simply too lucrative and will always find a way from seller to buyer.

Have a look at a map: there's like 5000 miles of ocean between Europe and South America - that beats any razor wire or wall, yet Europe gets all the coc aine it needs, every single day, month and year.

The only way to reduce supply is to reduce demand.



Maybe we should keep troops there permanently, and train them to take a more active role in apprehending traffickers?

The most expensive military in the world used as border guards?

I now how accurate this article is: fake news. The flow of recreational drugs is doing just fine and always will. Why? Because the enormous profits created from prohibition strongly drives the market. And there is never a shortage of demand.

So..What your telling me is the war on drugs is possible, if you actually tried instead of letting the CIA do its thing.

Good. More Open Borders would mean more Influx of Narcotics Into the U.S. but it seems Liberals seem to be embracing criminals and human traffickers.

With drugs it is supply and demand. Sadly there will always be a demand, so there will a supply. If it is not coming from Mexico, it will be made is some lab in someones garage, or grown in a closet right in the US.

Liberals see every human being as a potential voting Democrat. If an illegal drives drunk and kills your kid, that's OK...as long as that illegal alien votes Democrat.

It makes sense.

They will start to ship more drugs across once the army has left the border though.
No need to build a stupid wall. Drugs are transported via ships and in the postal system now.

Sums it up nicely


We're under no obligation to lift a finger to rectify their mistakes. We do not even do that for US Citizens, so why in the heck would some foreign nationals trying to illegally cross the border think we're going to help them?

We can't even help our own people, I don't understand how the rest of the world sees us as the great giver/provider. We are beyond broke (tens of trillions in debt) and have rampant third-world conditions in many places around the country
