The War On Drugs Ruined My Block. Attorney Marc J. Victor talks about the failed war on drugs in this short documentary. The war on drugs has been a complete failure. With the cost in lives, money, and resources escalating, it’s time to end this failed policy; just as we did the war on alcohol.
The War On Drugs Ruined My Block
In order to think clearly about the drug war, people need to separate the evils resulting from drug abuse from the evils resulting from this foolish drug war. The drug war itself has given birth to incalculable violence for the past several decades. It seems proponents of the drug war simply ignore the root causes of the violence in question.
In a free society, competent adults must be allowed to ingest any substance they choose into their body; even if it is bad for them. Such freedom would undoubtedly result in some people ruining their lives. However, all of the violence associated with the manufacture, transportation, sales and use of drugs would immediately end. Isn’t that by itself a sufficient reason to end the drug war; especially given that people who want to use drugs use them despite decades of failed efforts to convince them otherwise? There is no downside to ending the failed war on drugs and almost incalculable upside for everyone except the drug dealers and drug enforcement officers.
