The entire reason for this is the WAR ON DRUGS.
Instead of having room murderers, rapist and other people who are a legitimate threat to our 'precious society'. They lock up millions of drug
offenders (2001, 700,000 alone for marijuana only skeptically.org...
) most for mere possession, they will lock someone up for
"POSSESSION" even if theyre just found to be under the influence of a drug they count internal possession.
I can eat so much food, im 800 pounds. I can smoke so many cigarettes that I must gasp for breath, I can drink so much booze I cannot walk out my
door. I can do any number of RETARDED things, that endanger my life and well being, as well as some people around me. BUT THE GOVERNMENT WONT DO A
THING ABOUT IT!!! Unlesssss its an illegal drug that im harming myself with, then they can lock me up and ruin my life further.
1. Drug user, requiring treatment
2. Recreational user (100's of million of these in America's)
3. Drug pusher(any level)
4. Manufacturers (Growers, cutters, cookers, etc)
Drug users that require treatment, NEVER GET IT and have all their problems exasperated using prohibition. Recreational users who as a group COULD
NEVER BE ARRESTED, even arresting 10% of everyone who has used any drug in the last year, would totally change the US not to mention theres not enough
cells. These people get randomly caught in the crosshairs of law enforcement, and have their lives ruined. Possibly losing their kids, and future
Thus, first 2 groups suffer under prohibition.
Then we got the drug pushers and manufacturers. THE ONLY
reason these guys exist IS BECAUSE OF PROHIBITION!! Prohibition = Profit!
Thats the only reason they organize into gangs, the only reason they murder, and rob each other, the only reason our streets and our children will
never be safe is because of PROHIBITION! Then, ontop of all that, we get a police state to watch ALL of us.
Eliminate prohibition, and all of these problems that have arisen BECAUSE OF IT, disappear.
