The only reason drugs are illegal is because the Illuminati know that people want whatever they can't have, plus it drives the price up

They are playing us for billions. We could be stiling our own white lightening and smoking our own plants, but they can't make money off us that way.

First they deprive us till a certain age. Then they over charge us for natural products, then they make the bad drugs cheaper than the good drugs, then they throw us in prison for sampling what nature has given us.

It never ends with them.

Currently the Alcohol manufacturers are giving about 30 million anually to politicians and judges to keep the laws in their favor. Citizens pay for all the side effects which run into the trillions.

The Feds and States are currently favoring the following addictions which they tax and also get "campaign contributions" from.

The 5 most expensive addictions

• Alcohol. Estimated annual cost: $166 billion. Binge drinking hits the unemployed harder on a per capita basis -- 10.4%, vs. 8.4% of employed people. It is most prevalent in small metropolitan locales, rather than big cities or rural areas. The $18 billion spent on alcohol and drug treatment last year represented 1.3% of all health care spending.

• Smoking. Estimated annual cost: $157 billion. The tab includes $75 billion in direct medical expenses, with the rest in lost productivity from ill patients missing work. Given the low-tax (or no-tax) underground cigarette economy on the Web and on Indian reservations, it's unlikely that sales and usage have dropped much over the past decade, official government statistics notwithstanding.

• Drugs. Estimated annual cost: $110 billion. Like alcohol, illicit drug use is more prevalent among the unemployed. Most addicts are also heavy drinkers, though only a small minority of alcoholics are drug abusers. Crystal meth has followed marijuana, cocaine and heroin as the drug of choice among the young set.

• Overeating. Estimated annual cost: $107 billion. Overeating increases the risk of many health problems, including heart attacks. Obesity causes 14% of attacks suffered by males and 20% of those suffered by females, the National Institutes for Health says, and fewer than a third of adults get regular exercise. The bulk of the $107 billion is the direct cost to treat heart disease, osteoarthritis, hypertension, gall bladder disease and cancer.

• Gambling. Estimated annual cost: $40 billion. Addicted gamblers often feel compelled to chase after bad bets with more money in the hope of winning back their losses. And some who catch the fever develop the need to periodically raise the betting stakes to keep the same thrill. Also, addicts often face job loss, bankruptcy and forced home sales, and they are at greater risk to commit crimes like forgery and embezzlement.

These are 2005 statistics also, much worse now. And i didn't have the porn statistics either --probably cause the politicians are busy doing that.
