That was my guess. If they don’t catch her with the e-mail scandal, the Feds may trip her with a prescription drug abuse charge and, if found guilty, sentence her to rehabilitation and end her political aspirations.
Doing it in country is better for the balance of trade....
I’d consider legalizing drugs as long as not a single penny of government money was spent on rehad of the crazy dopes who get hooked on it. Of course, that’s too much liberty for a liberal to handle.
My 23-year-old calls it the gov’t’s 4 “D’s” to seize power over the populace - jeep the people:
Heroin is NOT addictive after one use nor is it fatal upon abstinence (though alcohol can be).
Read, “Romancing Opiates,” by Theodore Dalrymple. He was a prison doctor in England and dealt with a lot of addicts. Much of what we think of opiate addiction is fueled by misinformation from movies and TV. The average heroin addict becomes and addict over a period of 2-3 years suggesting that it is not as harmful as you mentioned (I once believed that too). In fact, according to Dalrymple, it takes a fair amount of effort to master its use and some work to become an addict.
This is not a defense in favor of Clinton’s suggestion, just a statement of fact.
“How about cutting off the supply ? Heroin is addictive after one use, it will never stop unless you build a wall.”
I think it would help if we didn’t protect poppy crops. Afghan production has tripled since we invaded after 9/11. It was actually lower when the Taliban ruled as insane as that is.
A good start is for government get out of the patient doctor relationship. Replace obamacare with vouchers and doctors can work for their patient instead of the government.
“Do you think the government HASN’T tried that?”
No. Not when troops in Afghanistan are strictly forbidden from harming the opium crop or trade.
I knew it.
Hillary is a...
We think alike.
To vote for Hillary Clinton you would have to be high on crack so yeah I can understand why she wants to legalize drugs. Probably needs to be high to do the big nasty with Slick Willy too
Without realizing it, she is calling for the mentally ill to be hospitalized and institutionalized.
It seemed to be something NBC produced to show during commercial breaks on the YouTube stream.
To modify Milton Friedman’s statement: You can’t have the welfare state and unlimited drug use.
Go ahead and legalize all drugs, but don’t make me pay for the consequences when others screw up their lives.
The only thing that really cuts off the supply of anything is a cut off of the demand.
“Iâd consider legalizing drugs as long as not a single penny of government money was spent on rehad of the crazy dopes who get hooked on it. Of course, that’s too much liberty for a liberal to handle.”
But that was her entire proposal. To make it a health issue where, of course, huge amounts of federal funds would go to rehab and counseling and education etc...
“Keep ya doped with [dope] and sex and t.v.”
