    Drugs are cool tho I love some of them so pls don't judge durgs for inncreasing ammount of crime. crime will always there no matter what if Kapitalist system will allive. As you mention you can't handle with durg cartels but with system in your country . Countrys may sell drugs on their own and legally so there will be no bad chemicals killing people and goverment will know who bought which ammount of drugs so they can get over from it. its not important if drug users increase if they don't die however world population also should decrease by something for better world. You also need to know that some drugs as marijuana dosn't effect your health badly just effects pshcolgly which you can easly solve if you have a strong brain or with help from a pshcologiest. Fighting with crime as war will also crime. its like you use fire to get warm but you injuring youserlf but you keep trying cuz its so cold. you need to hug someone or even medicate to not feel cold. using fire is not an option and it never will

    What are you talking about? Nixon's whole point was to bulldoze human rights. "We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did." -John Ehrlichman, Assistant to the President for Domestic Affairs under Richard Nixon All in all, I'd say it was an amazing success. Horrifying, terrible, and awful for everyone except the rich and powerful, but anything positive was a side effect

      @Ariel Ontiveros 1. Mutilation case is very rare 2. I don't think that those multi-million dollars case are caused by drug addicts, it's drug dealers, and of course there's no such headlines, because by that logic, they're also own the MEDIA 3. I acknowledge the difference between drug users that do nothing harmful and those who's do criminal activities

    I think Nixon's intentions for his War on drugs, which happened much earlier even FDR with marijuana, Reefer madness was 1936. Nixon had harsh penalties on the dealer, but less harsh on the user and focused on prevention and treatment (methadone clinics) for the user. Sammy Davis Jr USO trip to Vietnam he went to entertain the troops and to find out about the treatment of troops regarding drug policies. John Ehrlichman hated Nixon after not being pardoned, him saying that the reason for the drug war was to get rid of hippies, and black Americans, while at the time working with CORE, and Robert J Brown, as well as the Philadelphia Plan. The Black Capitalism idea was from Lewis Woodson ""Augustine: and used by Robert Reed Church in the 1800s. Floyd Mckissick probably introduced it to him for his Soul City project. Even after Watergate, Muhammad Ali defended Nixon in his interview, and Robert J Brown spoke at his Library. The attacks that Sammy Davis Jr recieved because of the inauguration hug, and James Brown received for his endorsement (he mentioned Sickle-cell anemia control act, and his friend Robert J Brown in his interview). I could be wrong "Black Supporters of the Presidentt under fire." (NYT, October 17, 1972).

    Lamentablemente en México esto ha escalado a niveles sumamente mas preocupantes: los capos de las drogas al no tener donde lavar el dinero proveniente del narcotráfico han establecido sus propios negocios, plenamente legales con lo que podrían sobrevivir y refinanciar el lucrativo negocio de las drogas mundialmente. Esto es un problema financiero también, donde los grandes bancos mundiales (como HSBC) no solo no cooperan, sino que evitan se investigue a sus grandes clientes.

    I am so far offended and we're only seconds into this. There was no war on drugs. They may have called it that but compared to nowadays, not even close. If we fought any other war as "hard" as we fought the war on drugs, we would have lost those too. Don't get me wrong. I do sometimes use illegal drugs and not just weed. I'm just pointing out the obvious. The war on drugs was not much of a war really.

    it's easier for minors to get drugs then booze.. sadly.. so long as demand exists so will the supply, its truly just that simple.. when will we stop building army's *police,gangs,cartells, etc* and just start helping our people.. the worst thing which wasn't mentioned.. is how our prison system takes small users and forces them into life changing decisions like joining gangs and things to protect what remains of there being.. no1 is happy to be a meth or drug addict.. Question to anyone who reads this but feels our system is just or supports it as such still... tell me how facing more then 75 years for nothing but possessing a quarter gram or less baggy of dope 5-7 times.. 75 years?? murderers get less time then this.. so how can you link this to helping and or justice? all I know is if there is a God..

      @Luke Watson so you cant even get past your own lack in ability to expand your thoughts out beyond your own experience. Sooo now you accuse me of something you know nothing about cause your arguement ability is childish at best. Sad for someone carring the name watson. truly try yourself and explore these issues. cause drugs my dear watson are on one of many issues that bring a whole slu of disagreement to many countries. Big surprize your answers get less intellegent but instead more engaged anger. Sadly accusations like yours are very reminiscent of a childs "no u r" i hope this isnt the case as i wouldnt wish the issues i discussed on anyone. Good luck sir if this rings truth for you then you'll need it.

      @Luke Watson Your direction of isnt very well laid out. Your queetion is just negative and about as effective pissing on hornets.. Lets not even get into the fact you answered nothing and simply attacked some people for something beyond there control, there familys actions. And many of todays gen of users has nothing to do with there past. I comes down to big pharma pumping out painkillers for everything.. kids within this timeframe, eye infection broken leg or sprain a multitude of reason s docs justified for hobestly and probly ment well. but a young adult fresh on drinking/party scene who saw and heard either thru music friends family or whatever.. opiates.. has there own bottle and says hell ill try 3-5 im curious. To some kids the idea of a pill getting you "high or whatever" doesnt and cant be fully understood may even seem like bs dispite what tought. so trial often occures even now i wonder how it changes some people and makes them almost monsters. but luke.. some stay the same and never hurt anyone, and work thru every day and have lives.. meanwhile there street drugs cost an arm.. or they o.d. or get cought driving there drug home to use cause you have to get it home to safly use it. so what about them? Your assuming every user is a problem and thats simply not the case.. there are bad eggs with every group. this is humanity. and id even say more so in the drug community. but this blanket statment is wrong and very unjustified. yes drug families tho tend to bring up drug using kids and its all they know in those cases. i find this to be even more heartbreaking myself. and seeing the swiss find something that is giving these people a better life is refreshing. not to mention it takes away from these powerful cartels control over all the innocent people in between this war.. ntm these prisons so many support only make stronger and smarter criminals and turn young and afraid into hardened criminals. its a tough political and social issue sir. your entitled your opinion but i highly suggest you consider a deeper thought as its far from a quick fix.. like our current brute force method.

    I totally agree with this video i went to europe and saw 1st hand how much better their system is compared to the united states system but what isn't taken into account are all the congressmen and men in the senate and others who hold high and powerful position's in our government who have invested billions of their own money into private prison's they make too much money locking people up to just say oh that's wrong we are ruining people's lives! No! They DONT CARE!!!! Like trump and the 1 percent it's all about MONEY! How much they can make! how much power and influence they can wield due to their enormous wealth! Unless all us citizens got together and said no more! But that will never happen! so we will always have this misery! Like my european friends tell me americans like to boast about freedom how free they are nut in reality we have far less freedom then europeans. I have to agree with them. Very sad situation thay will never change because of human GREED!
