We should make all drugs legal.
The idiots would end up killing themselves, the cartels would go out of business, and we wouldn't have to worry about poop on our streets.

“There were 189,000 heroin users in the US in 2001, before the US-NATO invasion of Afghanistan. By 2016 that number went up to 4,500,000 (2.5 million heroin addicts and 2 million casual users). The US military invades Afghanistan yet leaves all the opium fields alone.
Even though those fields are said to provide 90% of the world’s heroin.
The US Central Intelligence Agency trades drugs to those who will fight their battles for them.
It sort of sounds like maybe the US ought to forget about Mexico and invade their own CIA as well as burn those Afghan poppy fields to the ground, salt the Earth, and incinerate any future efforts to regrow that crap. Either that or start cutting heroin with Draino and saturate the marketplace with that, making those not currently using opiates too disturbed of the possibility of getting the bad stuff to ever consider trying it and those who are already on it either get off it or end up no longer a drain on society or their communities.

They also don’t have legal guns and have much higher tax rates and are much more socialistic. So what’s your point? Less diversity = less freedom ... you want freedom you deal with diversity.
Diversity doesn’t equal drug addiction. Drugs have always been an issue in the United States longgggggg before we have become more of a melting pot.
People forget what happened during prohibition.

What the government is doing now is utter BS. My Dr wrote me a prescription for Tramadol today and I couldn't get it filled. The fricking Fed has ruled that the initial fill can be for only 7 days and the prescribing dr has to provide pre-qualification to fill the entire prescription. How STUPID is that to have the prescribing Dr provide pre-qualification for a prescription he wrote.. Stupid X 3.
Then where would you get all that lovely Coke and Weed that your nation's populace craves so much?
