    There is... never was... never going to be... a true war on drugs. The so called "war on drugs" was merely window dressing to provide cover for the biggest drug dealers on the planet... and guess who they are.

    Let us not forget that people can get high from glue, paint and other legal everyday household items. Does this mean we should ban paint and glue? People educate your children that drugs, sniffing glue, and fatty food should be avoided not because you will get throw in prison but because they are harmful to your health. You simply cant make everything bad for people illegal.

    End the war on drugs, it has failed.
    Hemp was out biggest home grown product until prohibition. 13 years ended the alcohol stations and replaced them with gas stations.
    Today we are still protecting the oil developers, an electric car (GM EV1) was available until it was recalled and destroyed.

    The war on drugs will never end. Politicians know it's stupid. If you're smart enough to convince the people to elect you to the house, senate, or presidency, you are smart enough to see that the war on drugs is stupid. Most politicians act like it is not. The reason they do so is that they are arrogant. They do not want to be wrong. They do not want to say "Yeah, we wasted hundreds of billions of dollars and imprisoned your kids because we made a mistake. My bad."

    It's also political suicide for those that emphasize family values (any family that's had a kid's life ruined because of a drug conviction will instantly know how nonfamily the war on drugs is). Politicians who ran on family values will be condemned by the numerous idiots who think legal drugs will turn everyone into an addict (teach your kids to choose what's right and wrong, don't choke them, that makes them want to try drugs, DRUGS ARE A CHOICE), they will not get re-elected.

    Not to mention all the funding politicians get from medicine producing companies, who's medicines would be replaced with the far less harmful and non-addictive marijuana. Those medicine companies would likely go out of business (it would be for the better, their drugs are far more harmful than illegal drugs). Some politicians probably receive bribes from drug cartels that are strongly against drug prohibition.

    I say screw the government. The sensible officers in the police force need to band together and say "no, this is stupid, we're not arresting drug users anymore". When it comes from the mouths of tens of thousands of officers, the public will listen.

    I'd like to see the day when cops are no longer murdered by cartels due to the stupidity of politicians and when the cartel leaders are forced to get an actual job... or are captured, tortured, humiliated, and executed in public.

    there is no sense whatsoever with the war on drugs! It is just control and bully tactics, it's stripping the very core of your rights away! The right to do whatever you please with your own body! How on earth have we got to the point where someone tells us what to do with our own bodies? It's sickening that the police would smash your door off, leave your property unsafe, scare everyone inside... just to stop you putting something into your body! It's madness!

    The reason marijuana is said to raise crime rates is because possession is illegal. Also, the prohibition has caused gangs to sell weed, rather than people growing it or buying it from a store.

    I forgot, supporting the glass steagall act is very important too.
    Under the powers given to us as citizens, through the Preamble of the U.S. Federal Constitution, the Glass Steagall law of 1933 must be re-enacted now, as an essential stepping stone towards a real economic recovery, pivoted around the NAWAPA project.

    Impeach Obama;
    "My basic assumption is that he wasn't born there," Adams said. "Certifications of Live Birth were given to people who were born at home, or to people who were born overseas and whose parents brought them back to the islands. If his parents were U.S. citizens, or if one parent was a U.S. citizen, as was the case with Obama, the family would apply for a Hawaiian birth certificate when the parents came back from overseas. That's normally how you would have gotten on a [Certification of Live Birth] in the 1960s."

    As much as legalizing hemp.
    Our biggest cash crop, hemp, is still illegal, hemp powered our cars with alcohol. Again it was big oil that brought about prohibition to close the alcohol stations. It had nothing to do with drinking it or smoking pot. Obama is killing our young troops and not allowing them to absentee vote. We need protection again. Audit the Fed.

    Ron Paul, Rand Paul the only 2 candidates that I ever gave a contribution to their candidacy. Ever other member of congress as far as I am concerned need to be tried in a Citizen Trial Court and Hung for Treason and the Members of the so-called Federal Court System, and the Imbeciles on the Supreme court.

    The Demo-Republican Party are a fraud they are one and the same with different imbeciles that vote for those traitors.

    You go Ron!

    As long as drugs are illegal there's a profit for criminals. The Mexican cartel can be a prime example for instance. Marijuana their biggest cash crop is practically next to being harmless. You stop that and the major violence along our borders, border states and in Mexico stops immediatley. In other countries I know it's in Canada and in the Netherlands, their drug users are helped not prosecuted. Our prison population would decrease dramatically and people would get the help they need.

    It's simple psychology. People want what they can't have. Prohibition entices new users.

    Our judicial system is so archaic it's unreal. In Virginia they have carried out no knock warrants, set up cameras to catch people selling TWO OUNCES OF WEED (no lie) while our fire department's BEST firefighters are being forced to live in quarters with MOLD and unsafe living conditions. That money could go to where it is supposed to go, to HELP
