By maintaining a constant and steady flow of illegal drugs into the USA, our government is controlling the crime rates. When the flow is interrupted, the price of drugs jolts up and down causing the addicts to commit more robberies and muggings in an attempt to feed their addiction.
This also causes over usage which is hard on the ER staffs at the local hospitals. When a hard addict who is used to taking a hit every eight hours misses a couple of them, they tend to inject themselves with unsafe amounts which causes them to behave erratically. So we see more 911 calls, etc.
No, I am not suggesting that we legalize drugs.
Yes, legalize them, make sure the law abiding citizenry is armed, and leave the users to die in the streets if need be.
I for one am pretty fookin’ sick of sacrificing my liberties and convieniences for half assed stopgap corrupt bullshit like this. Boo freakin’ hoo if the “ER staffs are stretched” from scum, end EMTALA and let charities take care of drug use and violence victims after their stabilized or let em die.
This push-me-pull-you creeping authoritarian crap needs to end.
What if we cut off all their supply and let them go cold turkey. All heroin is gone.
Infect the crop with a genetic strain that makes all future crops unable to produce seed—like the genetically modified corn we hear about.
