Thank God, not Clinton. One does it for mercy, the other for some callous polital gain.
IMHO the drug trade is one of the greatest threats that not only America, but the entire planet faces. The amount of money is just too irrestiable, especially for goverments, it seems.
I won’t be a hypocrite, I’ve done my fair share of drugs
many a moon ago. Won’t do anymore. Ever.
Any military could wipe these cartels off the map easily but they’re now ingrained in every society, not unlike liquor. Save your soldiers, the war is lost to the immoral. Like your Clinton.

You’re not a hypocrite. You know what you AREN’T missing.

If you used drugs, stopped, and say people shouldn’t use drugs, people say: Hypocrite! You used drugs yourself!

If you didn’t use drugs, and say people shouldn’t use drugs, people say: You don’t know what you are talking about!

So, you can’t win with those who don’t acknowledge that drug abuse hurts MANY people, not just the people using.

Quite true. Of course, if these substances weren't illegal there would be no massive amounts of money involved.

The illegality creates the high prices.

I am continuously amazed at those who think CA agriculture could be saved by legalizing pot, as if a legal product would maintain the same high price. In actual fact, of course, pot as a legal commodity would quickly drop in price, as has every other farm product.

High price could be maintained by taxation, but set too high it would create a black market for untaxed dope and we're back to somewhere near where we started.
