How many people got a picture of a big black car, chicago, al capon, and a thompson submachine gun?
Anybody? How many other thought when you hear that "that doesn't work"?
Isn't that what we learned in USA between 1920-1933 Prohibition doesn't work, that's why we ended it.
Well that is the description of the policy we live under today, in America, when it comes to drugs.
We didn't have an illegal drug in this country until 1914(same year we got an income tax and a federal reserve).When we passed the Harrison anti-drug act.
The Government said, "We have 1.3% of the people in this country addicted to drugs. We can't.. We can't have that right?"
So they passed this law. Now you fast forward 56 years to 1970. The beginning of the War on Drugs.
In 1970, the Government said, "1.3% of the population is addicted to drugs.We can't have it, we gotta start a war on drugs."
36 years later, a trillion dollars, and all these lives lost. 1.3% of the population is addicted to drugs.
Now think about a random city in USA. Canton Ohio. All I know is this place went downhill due to crime and the police force has gone insane.

I believe it's fair to consider that our american police would be less edgy if drug money was not going into the pockets of gangsters and killers. I believe this town and all others will be a more peaceful place to live once we end the war on drugs. What do you think?
