This war on drugs won't end...

Posted 03-15-2011 at 02:08 AM by SmokeaJoint

The way I see it, the War on Drugs is perpetrated by money first. The cops get paid, the criminals get paid. All the efforts to legalize, to regulate, to end prohibition on the local and national level are all being undermined by the huge source of income known as Drug Prohibition. It practically prints its own money.

The government pays for enforcement of draconian drug laws. As a result, dealers and manufacturers raise prices. They make more money off their addict customers who can't stop using, and when the cops do raids, they take all the money and put it back into enforcement. Thus the cycle perpetrates itself. Not to mention the blatant corruption IN THE POLICE that has been spawned by the huge amount of drug and cash flow.

Now, the solution as it stands is to end prohibition, thereby eliminating the lucrative black market. But the Government profits from the War! Theres no way they will willingly end their money machine. No amount of lobbying, of state level efforts, no level of demonstration and democracy will be able to get the Government to let go of its fistfulls of drug money. Thus, the solution as it stands is a failure.

The road to legalization has been being walked since the 70's, and with little result. Whats to suggest a change in the trend? Instead of trying the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result, why don't we approach this in a different manner?

To end the War on Drugs, first you must end the motivation to wage the war. The motivation here being money. Now, to expect an addict to willingly quit his/her drug of choice is more foolish than to expect it to rain gold nuggets.How then to end the cash flow? Its very simple. The answer lies in high school level economics.

Saturate the market with high quality product. When theres way more product than the consumer can buy, prices drop as surplus builds. Now, in economics this would be a signal to stop production. Lets not do that, Lets continue to churn out massive amounts of high quality product as fast as we can.

Drown the War on Drugs in its own worst fears. When you grow or otherwise produce in bulk, its insanely cheap. For instance, I like to boast that with the cost of a quarter oz of weed, I could buy the stuff to grow 3-4 ounces of weed. And not just weed. Opium poppies are easy to grow, so we could flood the domestic heroin market. Some synthetics are stupefyingly easy to home synthesize, and even their precursors can be made without too much equipment and know how. Think of how easy meth is to produce. Just reading what Wiki has to say on mephedrone and methcathinone production hints at the ease, and the vast resources of the internet can fill in the gaps with only a little search and studying.

It can be done, if we are willing. If even a few substances (like the easiest o cheaply implement, weed and opium) were able to be removed from the market in this way, the rest would follow. America and the world should be shown the folly of prohibiting experiencing the mind. Its a failed War, and if we can make it stop paying, we can end it.

The easiest way to support this movement? Repost this blog. Then, grab some Papiver Somniferum seeds, some cannabis seeds, and your computer, and get to growing!
