THE ECONOMIC GAIN FORM THE DRUG WAR PAIN
America’s Drug Problem
Kill them all and let god sort them out! Ok, Ok that may be a little harsh, because…. Well, you cannot commit one crime in the furtherance of another crime….damn, it sure sounds good though!
Drugs, drugs, drugs, who said it was a problem anyway? Was it the pharmaceutical companies? The pharmaceutical companies that dispense and sell legal drugs made six hundred billion dollars in 2000 without the addition of legalized marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and or methamphetamines. Yea, I am sure they would like to get in on the action but they would lose out on all of the other drugs manufactured that could replace the effects of the aforementioned sidelined drugs.
It is my long standing ...view middle of the document...
This alone would cost hundreds of millions a year if not billions. That is not to mention the doctors’ care, rehab for those who now want to quit, and the associated costs of law enforcement officers from the border all the way to the coasts to protect smugglers who now are coming to America to steal our regulated drugs.
According to the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency), in the year 2000, our taxpaying society spent one hundred sixty million dollars on the five percent of the population who abused illegal drugs. (U. S. Drug Enforcement Administration)
So, if we conservatively doubled the acceptance rate, the taxpayers would be paying much more to deal with the explosion of addicted dumbasses.Did I say that out loud?
Seriously though, the only real solution to America’s illegal drug problem is to radically change our state and federal laws to allow for more stringent criminal punishment as it relates to drug traffickers, drug offenders, drug users, for example, the death penalty! Stop the multiple appeals process for three time losers; impose mandatory sentencing guidelines that are non-negotiable. America was built on the premise that we are a free society, but when that freedom affects the rest of society, then the root cause should be addressed, and rooted out. That’s right you heard me! Kill the drug lords! Especially the one that peddles his/her wares on the street, which directly affects the children.
This is one case where the majority cannot over ride the sanity of the few. The cost is too great, economically and morally. Let Holland be the guinea pig for destruction. However, I probably would not mind legalizing marijuana, and perhaps a little snort snort..toot toot for the responsible ones..
I could go on and on about this drug thing but I will not bore you with it…
