US DRUG POLICY IS A POLITICAL LIE NOT A REALITY



US DRUG POLICY IS A POLITICAL LIE NOT A REALITY

Fact is that the US government has no interest in stopping illegal
drug traffic.

That fact is supported by statistics. Drug use has increased. Drug
traffic has increased. Drug popularity has increased. The types of
substances being used has diversified and expanded.

The fact is that Illegal drugs make people easier to control, and
serve to eliminate much of the potential dissent as well as serving to
reduce the capacity for effective action and for critical thinking
which would otherwise challenge government.

If the US government were honest they would legalize most types of
illegal drugs, within a controlled system to assure that high risk
jobs are closed to addicts. (For instance it is not good for an
ambulance driver to be on cocaine or hashish. Similarly it is not good
for a brain surgeon operating and performing demanding surgical
procedures. Clearly there are many occupations that need drug testing
and screening out of addicts who would be considered impaired in
regard to their occupational responsibilities. The current system is
simply a lie and illegal drugs are largely a means of selective
prejudice which can be directed against selected users, and they are
a means of social control.

More often the "aid" given to foreign countries, allegedly for the
purpose of stopping the illegal drug trade, is in fact diverted to
maintaining social and political order against potential insurgency
and possible political overthrow of the government in the region where
the aid is provided. The alleged "battle against the drug trade"
provides an easy means for the US government to provide significant
financial means, that it otherwise could not provide and could
not gain approval for, to police states, and totalitarian regimes whom
it chances to favor or seek favor from.

It is time that a more European understanding and rational, fact
based, approach, replaced the right wing political drug policy lies
that America has been living for many, many, decades.

Cheers.

(PS. I am not in any way connected with the drug trade, nor am I an
illegal drug user. I have no drug habits of any kind. That is a matter
of my own personal choice. However, we need to end the lie and allow
those who feel the necessity to use illegal drugs, much more of a free
choice, even if that choice has consequences which they are willing to
accept.)
