just end the drug war here in america
no longer will they have anything to fight over because the drugs will be created by legit companies, that will create legit jobs, improving our
illegitimate economy that is being destroyed by the rich
tired of hearing how our gun laws might be changed to keep guns from going to mexico to be used in the drug violence there?
tired of hearing how we must change our laws and policies to protect mexico??
end the drug war, and we keep our guns, they have no reason to use guns there if theres no drugs there
if we do that, what will be their next excuse to change the assault weapons policy?
tired of the economy being in shambles?
end the drug war, use the benefits of hemp and other drugs that are now banned.
along with hemp, several other "illegal" drugs out there possess potential pharmaceutical benefits that should be pursued and researched
doing so will create new farming jobs, new research jobs, new manufacturing jobs, and the list goes on.
tired of hearing about problems in mexico and on our borders?
worried the problems on the canadian border will escalate with the escalation of violence and the cracking down on the mexican border?
end the drug war here in america
tired of the increased rate that non-violent americans are being placed in the legal system?
end the drug war relieve the burden placed on our disciplinary systems, our jails and probation systems are in need of a dire break as things are
spiraling out of control
tired of hearing about old grandmothers being shot during no knock warrants because they think they are being robbed?
end the drug war and no longer will police need to break down the door of a old woman because they think she possesses a gram of marijuana
i created this thread, because im sick of hearing in the news about the horrible things going on in mexico, im tired of the media hyping all this crap
up, im tired of the majority of the crap we see in the news, and when looked at, almost all of it starts with the drug war
in the 30s prohibition was repealed, and things started changing for the better, the community was revitalized, that is what needs to happen now, we
need serious change, not just the kind of change that is a political catch-phrase to win an election, but the kind of true change that will turn this
country around , we need things to be shaken up
im not promoting any specific drug, im not targeting hemp and saying it is going to save the world, im in no way advocating the use of any drugs
what i am advocating is a change in the way we do things, open up these fields for research, let us use what is available to us
lets give it a shot, we've been trying what we've been trying for a very long time, and we have failed immensely. our failure has been very costly,
not just in money but in lives and policies
i dont want this thread to be the typical drug debate thread where one person says yay and one person says nay
what i am hoping for is a realistic discussion as to what it would take for this to truly happen?
what must citizens do? what must politicians do? where do we begin? what are your thoughts?
