is the clearly FAILED war on drugs really worth our time?
Decriminalize, sell, and tax marijuana and we'll be making money on a clearly non dangerous drug rather than spend money trying to stop it from being sold illegally.
HUGE waste of money!
Not even a little bit. It's done nothing more than create overcrowded prisons that contain lots of people who are in for victimless crimes. It's also allowed cops to get overzealous with things like no-knock raids where they find no drugs, but end up
bombing babies in cribs. Not to mention the number it's done on those in poverty, predominantly black males, which then leaves thousands of broken homes & black children w/no daddies, thus perpetuating the cycle. It's a failed, harmful mess.
Maybe we should declare war on wealth and get this country back where it needs to be...
Really? What's wrong with wealth?
Nothing. It's meant to be a joke. All of the things we have declared war on still exist and in some cases flourished. We have declared war on poverty, obesity, terror, drugs, etc. So we need to declare war on wealth and get more wealth.
Ok, didn't catch the sarcasm :)
I like your sarcasm
Haha! That was great, ach :-))
