For the most part, the war on drugs is a local communities way of receiving extra cash and assets siezed in their raids.
I thought it was a convenient way of asserting absolute police power and setting the precedent that we really have no rights.
Yea Man! Them cops are always haslin us honest citizens, just because we're cookin up a little meth, or enjoying a few rocks of crack. Why don't they concentrate on all those wild eyed robbers that will shoot a store clerk for $20, instead of picking on us (inhale) honest dudes. Anybody know where I can get $300 quick? I really need it.
