Re: “Charleston police bust uncovers network of illegal drug distributors

This is a dog and pony show law enforcement agencies like to call "Dope and guns on the table". The so-called War On Drugs is a fruitless campaign. It was started in an attempt to divert attention from the C.I.A.'s idiotic plan to smuggle cocaine in the US in exchange to sell firearms to the cartels to pay Iranian rebels to free hostages there (i.e. Iran-Contra scandal). But it all went bad, government officials were exposed, the cocaine trafficking network was established and running. And instead of indicting Oliver North, the Secretary of Defense, and impeaching Ronald Reagan, they were all pardoned by George W. H. Bush, this knee Jeri reaction called The War On Drugs was started, and the blame was pointed at Black and Latino drug dealers in urban communities.

If our government truly wants to slow down and halt the flow of drugs in our country, two truths have to be recognized: One, Mexico is a narco-state. Their whole system of law enforcement and government is a farce to appease the international community. The drug cartels really run the country, just about all of their police officers and government officials are bought and paid for. Justice is only for those with deep pockets and everyone else is outta luck. They are not gonna put forth a true effort in stopping drug flow. Second, destroying supplies of drugs does nothing. You have to stop the demand. It's simple economics. As long as the Paris Hilton's and Lindsey Lohan's want something to toot up their nose at Club Amnesia on Friday nights, the demand for drugs will not stop. Maybe legalization of marijuana, or more efforts in treatment instead of criminalization will slow down demand. Cause what our government is doing isn't working. No disrespect to the law enforcement agencies that scored this win, but this is nothing. It's only a sand grain on a beach of a larger problem
