Obama Starts A Civil War On Drugs


California legalized medical marijuana for seriously ill patients in 1996 and it is now legal in 16 states and DC.  However, the Obama Administration wants to shut down pot dispensaries in California.

Obama's renewed 'War on Drugs' is ironically led by the Department of Justice while they are currently trying to cover-up the Gunwalker/Fast & Furious scandal that involves the federal government handing military-style assault weapons over to Mexican drug cartels.  The guns have been used to murder people on both sides of the border.

More than 42,000 people have been killed in drug related violence in Mexico since their president Felipe Calderon stepped up his 'War on Drugs' in 2006.

Legalization of drugs will end drug trade related violence.

The US 'War on Drugs' is an abject failure that costs US taxpayers $15 billion a year, or $500 a second.  The 'War on Drugs' has wrongly imprisoned tens of millions of non-violent American drug users and costs taxpayers almost $200 billion a year.

If the federal government was sincere about stopping drug use, they would end the CIA's drug smuggling adventures.

The federal government's enhanced War on Drugs is not really about drugs, it's about crushing States Rights under the Tenth Amendment and generating mega-profits for the pharmaceutical industry.

Ron Paul endorses ending the War on Drugs.

 Will the social-engineering smucks in Washington ever get over themselves? At some point, before they all die of old age, someone is going to have to move "policy manipulations" into the present (21st Century). There's little hope for the survival of the Republic, as long as the living are FORCED to function based on the history of the ignorance and self-annointed biases of the pathetic horde of "dead lunatics" who crammed the current policies up our collective asses, during their failed lives.

  At least Obama isn't "starting" wars - yet - to deflect attention away from his failed "administration". At some point, the United States is going to have to get back to the business of governance and some legitimate "enlightened self-interest". This lunatic posturing over non-event events and holier-than-thou egocentric meddling in the lives of Americans and the unwitting citizens of any number of foreign countries, really has to stop. THERE ISN'T A SERIOUS PROBLEM IN THE WORLD THAT ISN'T A DIRECT RESULT OF THE INTERFERENCE AND POWER-MONGERING OF ONE OR ANOTHER SO-CALLED GOVERNMENT AND THE SELF-SATISFIED ARROGANCE OF THE ASSHOLES WHO CLAIM TO BE SOME SORT OF "AUTHORITY" OR "CHAMPION OF THE PEOPLE" Give us, all, a break!
