Want To Make A Drug Lord Laugh?

Modern drug tunnel UNDER our borders.

Just Mention the War On Drugs

NY again tried to decriminalize small amounts of pot in our state. The Republicans in the NY Senate extinguished it.  They’re following the drunken steps of the Federal government which has spent about $500-PER SECOND for DECADES trying to tell us to ‘just say no.’

Ask any 10-year American kid if it would be harder for him to buy a pint of liquor or a small bag of weed and he’ll laugh at you.  Legislating morality is always a losing proposition for the government. The most obvious examples are Prohibition and the War on Drugs – oh wait, I forgot gambling, pornography, and prostitution.  Voluntary “crimes”  where the victims are the same people who commit the crimes. And drug deaths?

The number of drug deaths in the US in a typical year:

  • Tobacco kills about 390,000 people.
  • Alcohol kills about 80,000.
  • Sidestream smoke from tobacco kills about 50,000.
  • Cocaine kills about 2,200.
  • Heroin kills about 2,000.
  • Aspirin kills about 2,000.
  • Marijuana kills 0. There has never been a recorded death due to marijuana at any time in US history.
