It is widely accepted, both in academia and government, that the war on drugs has been an overwhelming success. But despite the many opportunities in private prison investments (paying a much higher dividend than the ten year treasury) and huge job creation, in both law enforcement and cottage industry horticulture, this most sensible and accredited policy of government has not been free from racist hijacking by white police officers and xenophobic capitalists.
Because of the racist implementation of an otherwise well thought out policy it is now time to reassess what success means. Sadly due to white nepotism too many judges and law enforcement officers are bigoted racists who have a tendency to let their redneck kin off while throwing the book at a person of color for the most minor of offenses. This situation has been compounded by their xenophobic fear of anyone besides a white male having access to firearms.
Incarceration statistics clearly show this racist bias. Despite being give unfair access to accredited medical care including the easy availability of oxycontin and other pharmaceutical company approved pain medications, (predisposed to criminality) whites insist on perverting the system by not only taking medications in unapproved ways (i.e. crushing, snorting, and injecting) but also taking advantage of black neighborhoods poverty by buying heroin, Carfentanil, and other unaccredited painkillers, from desperate young black men.
Because of this racist outcome it is time to regulate drug use in a more progressive manner. One of the great outcomes of this will be to get people more involved in the system through registration and medical regulation.
What must be resisted at all cost is the retarded idea of the libertarians (and other alt-right freaks) that drug use should be the choice of the individual and that government should be less involved. No, government must be more involved in peoples lives. A system whereby drug use is treated as a medical problem rather than a legal one has some merit – in as much as the full benefits of both big pharma and insurance can play a role.
It is time for government to act before more innocent black men, driven by economic racial inequality to offend, are locked up while hillbilly white junkies go free without even being registered and monitored by the state and/or big pharma.
