The War on Drugs
I support the following solutions to the "War on Drugs" in the USA:
1) Legalize, control and tax all drugs, starting with marijuana.
(We already do this with alcohol and cigarettes.)
2) Prohibit the production and distribution of all weapons, starting with assault weapons.
(There is no need for weapons made only for killing human beings.).
3) Release or give parole to all persons incarerated because of non-violent use or distrubtion of drugs. (Keep prisons for violent criminals, not non-violent drug users.)
Why is this important?
We constantly hear about the huge expenditures by our government to fight against illegal drugs. We hear about violent behavior by drug users and drug cartels. We know those drug cartels rake in billions of dollars. Much of that money could provide tax relief for the USA, if drugs were legal, controlled and TAXED!
