Why the War on Drugs is full of FAIL plus infographic

There i was. Stoned, hungry, bored, watching the 7 o'clock news while drinking a fresh New Castle. Life couldn't get any better. HEADLINE: Major drug bust indicates your kids are now at a higher risk for drug related death stay tuned! I chuckled, packed the bowl again and waited through all the governmental rhetoric about budgets and how both sides, red and blue, are childish. Patiently i sat through the bullshit. Oh there went Casey Anthony, yea we know she is guilty, slipped through the cracks... blah blah blah. BOOM my story. HELL YES. Some guy sporting a tax payer protector suit comes on, with his mount me hat and shades and gay ass mustache. Smiling proudly like a peacock, he announces "The city of Greenville NC has successfully removed 100lbs of Marijuana, 10 kilo's of heroin, as well as 15 kilos of cocaine that had been manufactured into crack, street value over 9000" . He later went on to imply that, since all these drugs were easily accessible to our kids that they are now in danger for their lifes and the only thing we can do to help them, is donate more money to the already failed drug war. Fair enough.. but where is the facts to support this science? I feel more in harms way now because of the simple principle we all know and love in america called SUPPLY AND DEMAND. Now the supply is lower, the demand will rise, as will the prices. What does that mean for those who dont use these drugs? That means you are now at a greater risk of being robbed for your worldly possessions. If yesterday a gram of crack for a crackhead was $50 and a vcr. Now they have to pay $100 and sell their 12 year old daughter as a sex slave. Congrats officer, you have successfully created job security for an already unneeded job. On top of that, now my sack of harmless, medical grade pot is reduced to some shwag sprayed down with drain-o. FFS. How will i live.

Instead of trying to get rid of drugs, why not get rid of the need for drugs? Legalize, Educate, Tax, PROFIT! We would think as corporate as america is we would have already taken this approach considering drug sales  lined the pockets of terrorist with billions, funding the murder of soldiers and other innocent people. The govt is threatening shut down because their budgets are whack and yet they spent $25,000,000,000 last year to keep drugs off the streets. Yes folks, 25 billion dollars. For what? I live in a quiet mostly white subdivision in north Carolina, and yet, 3 out of my 4 neighbors smoke pot and are willing to sell it to me at no profit. So 25 billion dollars spent and i can still get any drug i want on any corner in america. So wtf are they doing with all that money? They want to cut budgets for schools, health care and the elderly, and yet waste all their energy on drug addicts that are not going to change because they just don't fuckin want too. Perhaps if they were educated and healthy they wouldn't need food-stamps and a blunt. Perhaps if they werent chastised for a felony drug conviction they could get a damn job.. Hell perhaps if they were educated they could create their own job that doesn't include crack and prostitution, but the sad truth is, this is america and criminals are dollars. Criminals are free labor in most states. I thought slavery was abolished wtf?

Now that i am done ranting, here is a nice infographic! ^_^



  1. war on drugs fucks more people's lives than drugs themselves. it creates crime waves including gangs and increases poverty.

    in Amsterdam they decriminalized drugs and their drug uses goes down every year. strange how that works.

  2. electric addict yea man you are so right.

    same with cigarettes in the USA. they are legal but they educate the youth about smoking, albeit they have cut out smoking in alot of public areas and shit.. but people can still do it in the comfort of their own places, and guess what. cigarette usage is dropping.

  3. And people wonder why american prisons are so full...

  4. The war on drugs is shame/joke/bullshit. I personally don't drink or do drugs but really don't care if it was legalized. In fact I'd welcome it...the tax revenue alone would be amazing.

  5. Beggars should not be choosers

  6. Weed can be used as an excellent medicine to treat many disorders and illnesses. Its sad how sick people in the US cannot have access to their medicine. And even for recreational use, people should just be able to say "I want to get high because I make that decision to do so" and there should be no problem at all. Damn society, you scary....

  7. Sorrow were ever razed, and testy wrath. Supporting!
