    Nonsense !
    It’s a huge success !
    It does exactly what it was created for.

    The gold collar scum crowd wants to keep the money flowing to fund their debauchery life styles. This is how they keep the little guy out.
    Read :
    ‘the Committee of 300’ John D. Coleman. Hint the royals have controlled the drug routes for hundreds of years.
    ‘Barry and the Boys’ Hopsicker. Hint poor Barry – just doing his job ends up in the trunk of his car. The entire cuban thing was guns for drugs as was fast and furious. The alphabets fund their paychecks by using free guns (compliments of taxpayers) then sell them for drugs and bring the drugs into the U.S. by light planes they fly over (as in Mena Arkansas) and push the duffel bags out w/ a beeper inside to locate them at night.

    In a free society, there could never be a war on drugs. A government would never be allowed to regulated the personal conduct of the people. But alas, we were enslaved several generations ago.

      Damn straight!

    I’m in agreement with crocodile below.
    It has been very successful. It has made some criminals very wealthy and advanced the power of those seeking it.

    The writers view is indicative of how the people have become so distracted and confused they no longer see the forest for the trees

    It’s the same with the war on poverty, terror. How many billions have we wasted with searches at the airport that have produced squat.

    I wondered why a video on the war on drugs could not mention that the major suppliers of drugs are the USA in the forms of the CIA (finances black ops) and other alphabet organizations. Then I realized this video was made by the major George Soros organization Open Society.

    This makes me disappointed in Activist Post. It is hard for me to believe that people that check this spot are unaware of who grows, transports and sells the drugs all over the world.

    Drugs will soon be replaced with human trafficking a trade that is gaining importance even as I write this when all people can be put on prescription pharmaceuticals (very far along on that objective)

    I couldn’t disagree more. The real shame is that the War on Drugs has been an immense success with its goals: creating a terrifically profitable enterprise for the Military/Industrial/Prison-for-Profit/Judicial juggernaut.

    How embarrassingly stupid of us to allow this to happen on the public dime of “societal control.”

    How can anyone claim it’s a failure? It has accomplished everything it was created to do – and them some.

    In the May-June 1995 issue of The Utne Reader magazine, former DEA Chief for New York Michael Levine wrote an excellent article deploring the War On Drugs. He wrote about “the legions of belly-crawlers in Government employ”, a reference to the Government’s use of confidential informants (that term does not adequately represent the scope of criminal activity which these extra-judicial lying scumj assets engage in). I’m approaching my 6th birthday and have seen how this horrible War On Drugs has played out over peoples’ lifetimes. Crimes were committed which never would have been committed apart from this insane and criminal Government program. Murders were committed, lives ruined due to entrapments and persistent behaviour of scumbags who couldn’t take responsibility for their own crimes, so they took the Government’s offer to destroy other lives in order to stay out of prison.

    There never has been a war on drugs.
    There always has been a drug war on the competition.

    The collateral damage fills prisons, cemeteries and battlefields, across the world.
