So are we really winning the war on drugs and at what costs ?



June 01, 2011 – Comments (6)

The U.S. government has sent $1.4 billion in aid to Mexico and Central America to help fight the bloody war against the drug cartels. More than 35,000 people have died over the past four years in the drug-related violence. Drug cartels have turned to the use of narco-submarines and ultra-light aircraft to get their product to the U.S. market, in an effort to foil increased enforcement measures

I'm  not a  drug user,   in fact  I take  no  drugs,  nor  am  on any  prescriptions,  but  this war  on  drugs   is  a  farce....  

Global leaders call for a major shift to decriminalize drugs.

No of course we're not winning any 'War on Drugs', and it's a fools endeavor to even try. Let's face it- humans desire altered states of consciousness (whether that be drugs, alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, whatever) sometimes, and we always have, whether that's been 'approved' by government or not. The fact that people have always continued to engage in these pursuits despite them often being considered socially or legally unacceptable and sometimes at great personal risk to themselves, that indicates to me that maybe this desire for altered states is something fundamental and inherent within us, hard-wired within our brains. It's impossible to legislate such a thing, just as it was impossible to legislate homosexuality away. These things are a part of us, and no laws can or will ever change that.

And it's not just us, as animals also seek altered states, the most famous being the reindeer in the Scandinavian Arctic who will travel hundreds of miles in search of the hallucinogenic fly agaric mushroom, which makes them behave in a drunken manner. It's the same thing with the iboga plant in Africa, a powerful hallucinogen that boars, porcupines, gorillas and mandrills will dig up in order to get at the hallucinogenic roots. And in the US and Canadian Rockies, bighorn sheep will take great risks to get at a rare psychoactive lichen. In scraping it off the rock surface they can wear their teeth down to the gums, and these are just a few examples amongst many.

Does tripping out or feeling drunk help any of these animals in their natural state? Does it enhance their chances at survival? Probably not, but yet they do it anyway, and so do we. What does that tell ya?

Imagine if we ended the war....      and worked on fixing the soul and hearts of those  enslaved.

Plenty of fat cops would be out of a job.
