I'm ready to end the War on Drugs. And a majority of Americans are right there with me. Myself and Vigilant Producer Alex Logan run the numbers on how much the U.S. stands to gain by ending this so-called war. Do you think it's time to legalize or decriminalize drugs?

New prohibition?
What do you consider old?

Good God! A breath of common sense.

Funny the timing though - having sent so much manufacturing abroad, perhaps its time to turn to things like manufacturing drugs? I doubt people will have to woo customers.

If drugs do become legal again would it be fair to compensate all those who have been punished for taking them and had their property stolen by the state?

Wasn't there a leak that the UN is talking about global decriminalization all over the world now? Richard Branson I think is the source. You can see it happening, they have secured enough control digitally now, they can finally drop the bull snip drup war...

I heard of a guy who got caught recently for a speeding infraction, and he was nervous so the state trooper started goading him and accusing him, the guy became more upset so the trooper put him in his patrol car and searched the guys vehicle and found prescription meds without the guy having valid prescriptions. The trooper called DHS and now DHS is holding the guy on 250 separate felony charges. And the guy has no chance of getting a lawyer except for the public pretenders. A friend of mine's wife is a friend to this person's wife, so that's how I heard about this.

Happened last Friday. I don't know the person. This is a good example of what this war on drugs leads to, and the only thing that matters to those running the current show is the money they make busting people and throwing away the keys.

The guy is looking death in the face and is in some DHS detainment facility in Skagit county Washington. DHS, the new Gestapo who cares not for citizens, and enjoys the absolute and total destruction of a human being.
This war on drugs is a smoke screen for authoritarians and Nazi style storm troopers. And Obama loves this, being the most authoritarian neanderthal to ever disgrace the White House. He would rather take away the right to self defense than defend citizens as his agendas currently show.

The current business of letting some people out of prison is just fakery for political purposes. He hasn't decriminalized anything and most likely doesn't intend to since that would be a plus for "Freedom" Something he despises proven time and time again by every single thing he does.

Police that exploit these laws knowing that their enforcement actions will totally destroy a family are themselves doing an immoral thing to another human being with a grin on their face. Following the law and doing their so called job is not what they are doing since they embellish evidence and twist the laws to get maximum destruction upon a person.

This is especially true of the department of homeland destruction which should be disbanded immediately since they are totally run amok and walk with a strut and one hand on the trigger. They do not observe the law of the land themselves and declare themselves entitled to search and seize anyone at any time for any reason they wish.

The war on drugs will end one way or another. If it doesn't end by people doing the right thing for the integrity and future viability of America, then it will eventually end when the bloodiest civil war in the history of the world is over, but then it won't matter anymore anyways.

The way it's going right now, laws keep escalating and punishments keep escalating along with these new laws that even recently passed in Washington state like the law that makes it a felony if you have a prescription medication that is not in the original container and you get caught with them loose or in a coat pocket. Felony bust depending on the schedule of the drug.

The latest popular propaganda says that the war on drugs is dwindling and winding down, but that's because of the pot law changes just beginning. The truth is that it is gaining more and more laws with worse and worse punishments. I hope I am wrong, but reality says otherwise at the moment. The war on drugs is a clandestine and evil civil war all by itself that is leaving a wake of destruction of families which will inevitably bring about the destruction of America and sooner or later America will be outed as the most UN-FREE country on the globe. It already is in so many other ways.

If you ever get Obama in the ring Jesse, give him a snap kick to the jewels and tell him it's from me, NoCorruptionAllowed

The option to legalize and decriminalize is a start, such as the bill by Sanders.

While a very positive step don't underestimate here. The worry may be one the PDs don't have small time drug offenses to use to keep people in jail, who will be the next group to take the fall for the for profit prisons? Jaywalkers(ie see Austin)? Traffic infractions? More debtor prison time? Sadly, so far, it's been DUIs for medicinal marijuana patients in Washington State.

The 'war' on drugs has a big social cost. Corruption
provides a lucrative option for the enforcers.
Get on the wrong side of the players , and your life is over.

Decriminalisation and legal purchase framework would
put a lot of Mr. Bigs/gangs on the back foot .
And free a lot of people from their backmonkey.!
Once something is legal , a lot of people don't want to
do it anymore !

An officer from the Mission Police Department in South
Texas, who was assigned to the Drug Enforcement
Administration task force, was arrested on federal
charges that he stole more than five kilos of coc aine
from a home during a drug raid before staging a fake
drug bust to cover up his crime days later.

Hector “Jo Jo” Mendez, 45, a 17-year-veteran of the
force, is accused of stealing 15 bundles of coc aine
from a home in Mission in July of 2012. aine-from-dealer-with-intent-to-resell/

Corruption runs deep in the Rio Grande Valley –
one natural result of Mexico's $10 billion-a-year cartel
industry and America's $30 billion-a-year drug war.
Twenty years ago, a Hidalgo County sheriff was convicted
of racketeering and money laundering, and since then
other border-county sheriffs have been brought down
every three or four years. "Narcotics investigation is
a very slimy world," Sheriff Treviño told local newspaper
The Monitor in 2008.
"If anything is gonna kill us, it's internal corruption,"
he warned. "Because some of our folks can be bought.".
By 2012, word was getting around that the Panama Unit
might be dirty.The Panama Unit was the sheriff's idea.
It was a way to get his son working more or less under
him without violating state nepotism laws. The sheriff
wanted Jonathan to follow in his footsteps, to be one
of the top cops in the state, and leading a narcotics
unit was an important step. "Lupe was grooming him,"
says one federal agent. "The unit was created to help
Jonathan climb the ladder."

Dealers were starting to talk: Crooked
cops were one thing, but they shouldn't go around
stealing your #. Other cops saw red flags too –
like how the unit occasionally called in an operation
after the bust, instead of before.

Meanwhile, the Panama Unit was getting paranoid –
not about cops, but about drug dealers. Treviño
wasn't afraid of the cartels themselves: He was
smart enough not to step on their toes. "Not every
dealer in the Valley runs with a cartel," he says.
"So the more independent ones, you could go after
them safely." Also, if they did ever accidentally jack
the wrong stash, he had "friends on the other side of
the border" who could take care of him "in case #
hit the fan." He adds, "It's like a business. You have
to go through a chain of command. So I had people
up the chain who could put a stop to it."

"Escorts have been around forever," says a local
police chief. "Corrupt cops have been doing that
for a long time." The way they worked was a
couple of unmarked Panama vehicles would drive
behind and in front of Betty's shipments, protecting
the load from any bad guys and stepping in if any
good guys showed up. Escorting didn't pay much,
especially compared with the rips. But the unit
had a bigger plan in mind: They would use Betty's
connections, working loads and building trust, until
they got one valuable and vulnerable enough to rip off.

What was obvious to him was that the Panama Unit
had stumbled into a trap. Betty was an informant
all along – "loaded up in a government vehicle with
government coc aine,"
The news of the Panama Unit rocked Hidalgo County.
In all, nine officers associated with the crew were indicted,
and the DA announced he was throwing out as many as
75 cases: "Their credibility went from absolute to zero,"

It wasn't long before suspicion fell on the sheriff.

Lupe Trevino ultimately admitted to accepting
between $20,000 and $25,000 from El Gallo.
A sheriff's commander, who was himself convicted
of bribery, claims it was more like $1 million.
The cash was delivered in paper bags, fives, tens
and twenties. At his own sentencing in November,
El Gallo – who, to be fair, stood to earn a reduced
sentence by implicating the sheriff – said he gave
Lupe $53,000 for a new fishing boat and $40,000
for a trip to Vegas. aine-texas-hidalgo-county-20150105?page=6

For most of the ’80s Michael Levine was a high-voltage
player in America’s drug wars, until he became
convinced that the government’s efforts were
misguided and useless.
“There is no drug war. It’s a fraud.
No other nation in the world has a drug war.
The rest have addiction problems. We have war.
Why? Because it’s a toy, a grab bag with a lot of
big hands in it.

If you live in Canada my Team of Dr.'s can help prescribe you Medical Marijuana under Canada's MMPR

The Marijuana is non contaminated with other narcotics such as found on the blackmarket.
THC typically ranges from 14%-30% (which is usually 2-3 times stronger than Black Market).
CBD strains are available. There's some amazing work being researched in Canada specifically geared towards 2 Cannabinoids,

CBD - Cannabidiol
CBN - Cannabinol

My Producer Has all available in all strains. Simply Magic!

613-875-6575 or

Mention this ATS post and you will get $50 off the cost of the consultation (which also includes your prescription, if you pre qualify with a medical file that supports your need to want to try Cannabis as a last resort for treatment)

Sad right, a last resort, but that is how it is viewed currently (in the medical community) It needs to change.

The only way it will change is for more people to get Legal.

My expertise with growing and recommending Producers, and my knowledge about how the Cannabis receptors interact with our very own endocannabinoid receptors is second to none. Education is key and I am here to bridge the educational gap between Patient, Dr. and Licensed Producer.

Thanks ATS!

It's about 70 years past time to at LEAST decriminalize *all* drugs. It's a public health matter, not a criminal matter, and prohibition simply does not work. There are much less damaging ways to waste money; all we've done is made them more accessible and dangerous as well as empowering criminals and promoting corruption.

Screw that I don't want to live in a society where drugs are condoned. People with substance abuse problems have some serious psychological issues. Mind altering substances mess people up. I hate dealing with drug addicts and alcoholics as it is. People don't need the right to be able to walk into a store and say give it to me. I'm perfectly fine with locking them up. If it were up to me I'd get medieval on them.

There's a difference between condoning drugs and handling them appropriately.

Education, prevention, and treatment are appropriate responses. Ineffective criminalization that only amplifies the involved problems and ruins lives/wastes budgets in the process is not.
