Ever wondered why the Drug Warriors continue to get away with their low level civil war, despite daily stories like this one revealing disillusionment within their own ranks, or daily stories about the far greater social costs and consequences of the “legal drugs” (mainly alcohol and nicotine), or daily stories of the very real benefits (psychological and medical) of the so called illegal drugs?
Its because there is so much at stake for them. Admitting defeat on such a violently enforced policy after 50 years of abusing their own populations would make plain to those populations just how badly they’ve been lied to and manipulated by the Drug Warriors.
And as those same criminals are also running the rest of our political system, it would make it impossible for them, ever again to be believed or trusted on any of the real threats. It would, in short, confirm that the Drug Warriors ARE – and always have been – the REAL threat.
