Tax payers money is wasted on the drugs war

war on drugs

From presidents to the dogs on the street, everyone agrees that the war on drugs is an utter failure. It has made criminals out of decent human beings. Attacked our freedom and held the tax payers ransom for years. This urban war has created the environment where drug cartels are formed. Huge profits going into the hands of the most violent members of society.

Cannabis is the largest part of the drugs war. The authorities are apparently protecting people from a substance that is less harmful than alcohol and tobacco. There are negative affects with consuming large amounts of cannabis. This is true for sugar, salt and just about every other substance as well. If we are going to decide on the danger a substance poses to the public then we need to scientifically study it and then make rational decisions.

The problem is, we have done the science, pot it turns out is actually beneficial to our health. If the anti marijuana side had real facts on the health dangers posed by cannabis, we would have heard about them. Government is entrusted with our tax money, when they misuse that money then they need to be held accountable. The huge police effort to keep cannabis off the street doesn’t work. Pot is more widely today then it was when the drugs war began. People like it and patients need it.

By legalizing marijuana you save the tax payers huge sums of money. Instead of arming the police and letting them play Rambo with non violent citizens that smoke pot we could use the money saved to provide free public transport in cities. If more people use public transport then less cars will be polluting our environment which will have huge health benefits for society. You see, once we open our mind we can really start changing society for the better. A better tomorrow is waiting for us if we make the effort and stand up for what is in our best interests. Until then, slime ball politicians will profit from our division.
