Original Message End The Violence, Legalize All
Drugs - A Pipe Dream
By Devvy Kidd


[link to www.rense.com]

an interesting article, but,

PROHIBITION IS THE PIPE DREAM.

we don't like drugs,
so we will simply make them illegal,
and they will go away,
and that is the easy sounding answer.
IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE,
IT IS, TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.

after decades of PROHIBITION;
DRUG USE IS UP,
drug PURITY / POTENCY IS UP,
KIDS ARE STARTING YOUNGER,
THERE ARE NEW DRUGS, that never existed before, that are much worse than the ones we prohibited; fake pot, bath salts, meth made with toxic ingredients, etc.

as PROHIBITIONISTS usually do,
she gives many fine examples of PROHIBITION CAUSED PROBLEMS, (or crazy, violent, abusive assholes)
AND THEN SHE BLAMES THE DRUGS,
INSTEAD OF BLAMING PROHIBITION.
(or blaming the crazy, violent, abusive assholes)

there were once gangs that MURDERED PEOPLE over the illegal alcohol trade.

there are no such ALCOHOL gangs today,
BECAUSE alcohol is legal,
and therefore, not highly profitable.

alcohol is sold and used every day,
without PROHIBITION CAUSED violence.

there are LOTS of DRUG gangs today,
BECAUSE DRUGS ARE HIGHLY PROFITABLE,
BECAUSE drugs are ILLEGAL.

example;

"'It's not illegal because we don't want people to feel better. It's illegal because it makes good people do crazy things,'

this ignores the fact that your body cannot tell the difference between street heroin and prescription opiates like valium, percodan, etc.

when coca-cola contained cocaine,
it was sold and used every day,
without PROHIBITION CAUSED violence.

amphetemines were sold over the counter, as 'stay awake' pills or 'diet pills' for years,
are still sold as a prescription drug,
and our fighter jet pilots are REQUIRED to use amphetemines on extended missions today.

prescription drugs are sold and used every day,
without PROHIBITION CAUSED violence.

prople who are crazy, violent, abusive assholes,
are always going to be crazy, violent, abusive assholes,
so, don't blame the drugs,
blame the crazy, violent, abusive asshole.
("personal responsibility")

some lovely hypocracy;

"Dopers, rich or poor, should be made to pay the tab for their rehabilitation, not taxpayers.
Personal behavior brings personal responsibility.
If you get addicted to drugs (even prescription medications), it's your responsibility to pay the cost of getting yourself clean, not mine. Not mine through higher taxes or higher insurance premiums."

so, she is for "personal responsibility",
if you get addicted to drugs,
BUT AGAINST THE "personal responsibility",
TO CHOOSE WHAT YOU WANT TO DO WITH YOUR BODY.

so there is no CHOICE, no FREEDOM, no "personal responsibility", in the begining,
but, somehow, in the end, it is all your fault.
all your "personal responsibility".

EXAMPLE; say you want to drive a car.
but you get NO CHOICE,
you are forced to drive a car witH no brakes,
and when you crash, well,
YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR IT.
IT IS ALL YOUR FAULT.

IF she was really in favor of "personal responsibility", she would be in favor of FULL LEGALIZATION.

"Personal behavior brings personal responsibility."
IF IT IS A "Personal behavior",
WHY ARE THE COPS INVOLVED WITH IT ???

nose picking is a "Personal behavior".
should the cops be able to arrest us for that, too ???

some lovely irony;

"Do people really think legalizing drugs will stop the violence? People who believe that must be smoking a pipe full. You can make meth, cocaine or heroin legal.
But, even if they were available for ten cents a pound,
it will not stop the violence, abuse of children"

later in the article, she mentions a mother who pimps her 6 yr. old daughter, for MONEY, to buy VERY EXPENSIVE illegal drugs.
if drugs were LEGALLY available for ten cents a pound,
things like this WOULD NEVER HAPPEN.

and selective memory;

"Prior to the sex and drug "revolution" of the 1960s, millions of tons of drugs did not come across our borders."

millions of tons of drugs did not come across our borders BEFORE NIXON DECLARED THE 'WAR ON DRUGS', EITHER.

she does finish with some truth;

"Do I believe the official 'war on drugs' is a massive failure? Yes, I absolutely do. The whole thing is a gigantic fraud. I also believe politicians, even those who sincerely want to see people off drugs so they can live happy, healthy productive lives, have passed laws that are morally wrong just to get more votes at election time."

and;
"The "war on drugs" is a multi billion dollar industry that must be dismantled and start over. There is no constitutional authority to steal from you and me to send any federal law enforcement to other countries to "fight the war on drugs". There is no constitutional authority to steal from you and me to pay foreign countries to stop growing opium or any other drug."

AND;
"There is just too much evidence that rogue elements within the U.S. government are using drugs as their cash cow for black ops, not to mention protecting the drug industry in foreign countries where it eventually ends up here. The gutless cowards in the Outlaw Congress have refused to investigate CIA drug running for decades."

and;
"The Outlaw Congress has also turned a blind eye for decades to the big banks laundering all that dirty drug money"
