The Drug War: Big Money Fast

The drug war will never end because people will always want drugs, and as long as there's a demand there will be a supply. But don't fool yourself that's it's not "winnable." Every time you have to stand in line to buy cold medicine, the masters win. Every time you or your children are random drug-tested, at work or at school, the masters win. As Mexico melts down and over 2 million Americans languish in cages, the masters win. Because prohibition is, and always has been, a tool of oppression. And its spin-off war has never been anything but an excuse to ramp up the fear and the violence, increasing the oppression and furthering the careers of lawmakers and law enforcers. At the small price of human life. They win.
