War on Drugs?

One of the few major drugs to remain unscathed by our government's hypocritical, unjust, and unconstitutional "War On Drugs," alcohol, is coincidentally, one that keeps us stupid, unaware, and unable to fight for our liberty while under its influence. This Bud's for you! But how is our government justified in criminalizing any drug? Considering that the crack epidemic in this country can be traced directly to the CIA bringing cheap cocaine into this country to finance the Iran-Contra arms-for hostages deal, where do they get off passing zero-tolerance laws that make it legal to confiscate a citizens property merely on suspicion of dealing drugs? Considering that alcohol, tobacco, and caffeine are all perfectly legal, and all practically shoved down our throat, where do they get off financing the "This Is Your Brain On Drugs" campaign? Considering the fact that a "war" on drugs wasn't deemed necessary until they realized they could no longer use a war on commies to fuel our perpetual war-time military economy, is it really likely anyone in charge really cares about drugs' possible harmful effects? Or is it merely a military action on the American people designed to feed the wallets of the military and prison contractors, and all the government officials in their pockets?


Discuss amongst yourselves.
