Obama War On Drugs: Focusing On Prevention And Neuroscience, President Ends Reagan’s War On Drugs | Breaking News for Black America

If the so called War on Drugs were really about public-health in America. And preventing people from using narcotics in the first place and getting users of of narcotics. Then you would think the policy would be about preventing narcotics from getting into the country in the first place and that's all. Narcotics not just legal-narcotics like tobacco, alcohol, prescription-drugs, steroids and you could also look at caffeine. And sugar I mean if you really want to have a War on Drugs that are bad for people in this country. Most drugs that aren't used for medical purposes would be illegal and probably most of the country would either be in. Prison or breaking the law and government deciding that fifty million people in prison or whatever it might. Be is too much and we simply can't prosecute and incarcerate everybody. Hell government would have to prosecute and incarcerate their own drug-warriors because we as a nation all use drugs that aren't. Good for us but this is not what this is about. This is about politics and the tobacco, alcohol, sugar and prescription-drugs industries not wanting real competition from. Marijuana and other illegal-narcotics.

If the so called War on Drugs were really about prevention and public-health. Then we wouldn't be as a country locking up people and sending them away where they can get more illegal-narcotics. What is one of the biggest security issues for our jails and prisons, illegal-narcotics as well as legal-narcotics. I mean seriously if this were a real War on Drugs which I'm against and wouldn't be my approach to. Narcotics in America legal or otherwise, we would do whatever we needed to do and keep those narcotics from. Getting into the United States in the first place and for all of our users and narcotics, they would be in drug-rehab getting off of those narcotics. And moving on with their lives outside of the criminal-justice system. But thats not what this is about, this is about big government knowing best what drugs we should be allowed to have in America. And what drugs we shouldn't have based on what they and their political backers have decided is okay.

If you want a real War on Drugs and like I said I don't want a real or fake War on Drugs. But if you are going to have one, do it right and get people off of drugs and out of jail and prison and stop drugs from. Entering the country in the first place.
