The war on drugs manifested quite some time ago. Thankfully, The Nixon Administration vowed to expend maximum resources achieving victory. I believe he took the money labeled for this victory and filled his pockets prior to empeachment. I have no evidence, Especially when it comes to tainting the honest image of Nixon. Time and time evidence supports that the government doesn"t want this war to stop because of the cash cow it has become for "The Man".
I argue that this war can never be won without radical changes in society. This radical transformation I"m speaking of poses to completely legalize all illegal narcotics within the nation"with portion restrictions of course.
I argue that dependence, Overdose, Incarsirstion, And crime will all drastically reduce. Legalization of all narcotics will reduce overall poverty while increasing employment, Success, Happiness.

I offer that we shouldn"t put more money into rehabilitation or punishment meant for prevention, But instead shift our focus in loving others while teaching self-awareness.

What are your thoughts? Does religion play part in your discussion? Do you believe that the War on Drugs is actively being fought or just managed?

YESSIR! We are destroyed the world of drugs. Police find drugs every day. Just the other day on June 26, 2018 "A police dog helped officers in Chicago recover more than 1, 500 pounds of narcotics with an estimated street value in excess of $10 million" (ABC news). That is a crap ton of drugs. Most likely those are the only ones that exist currently if there was that much found. Currently nobody else is using them because they all got caught. In the future we might find more and they will be gone again. Can you name someone that has ever used drugs? Nope. Nice try. Nobody uses drugs so this topic is quite irrelevant

The problem is "we". . "we" can not live without drugs, (the other "we"). So "we" have war with us.
