The drug cartel murders hundreds of thousands of people
yup they certainly do, them and "motorcycle gangs", as well as other types of gangs. ALL made POSSIBLE by the "war on drugs
" making drugs a
VERY PROFITABLE enterprise.
The drug cartel has thousands and thousands of sex slaves
yup the SAME groups certainly do, partially financed by the same profits generated from drugs made expensive but no less popular by the "war on
drugs". that combined with the fact that prostitution
is ILLEGAL as well making it both a profitable venture, and one that is hidden within
the shadows because ALL prostitution is ILLEGAL. i suspect if prostitution was legal (not a fan of that myself), it would not only REDUCE the
profitability of "sex slaves", but also make them harder to hide within a LEGAL setup where those that CHOOSE that lifestyle (and YES MANY DO
it freely) would "out" the illegals.
The drug cartel smuggles your weed across the border
You buy this weed, and act like you are a peaceful person who hasnt hurt anybody, when you just funded countless slaughterings in South America.
actually only SOME "marijuana" is smuggled
across the SOUTHERN border. it ALSO comes in from Canada, some "major crime" controlled, some
not. not to mention IT IS GROWN ACROSS THE UNITED STATES as well.
in FACT "weed" is NOT the BIG CASH EARNER for the CARTELS, that would be
in fact the primary REASON they can both supply "weed" and profit from it, is because of the war on drugs
taking out LOCAL
growers of it in the US. so if you think of it in that way the WAR ON DRUGS
is JUST AS MUCH AT FAULT for those problems as the criminals are
themselves. just like "prohibition" made the "gangsters" POWERFUL and RICH, so the war on drugs
does the same for today's criminals. in
fact due to this, if they were to totally LEGALIZE just marijuana alone, it would SEVERELY HURT such organizations, not only because of taking cash
and power away from such criminals. but if marijuana was legal many people would not turn to harder drugs when "marijuana" is unavailable because of
shipments seized and "grow op's" taken down.
