Now that's what I call having a BAD day. Close to a half million dollars down the drain and the prospect of a lengthy vacation to look forward to. I have to feel some empathy for the guy, even though his profits were made at the price of much human misery.

When is the enslavement to these poisons going to end?

Of course you don't care that the entire constitution is being undermined. We've been convinced by both extremes of the political spectrum that government bureaucrats are the only people who can protect our children from dangerous substances. The fact of the matter is, only parents, community leaders, and educators can decrease drug use, big government cannot. Federal funds are flooding local police and it is leading down a path toward a national police force, as well as the assumption of guilty until proven innocent. All we are doing is decreasing our liberties, and putting more money in the pockets of lawyers, judges, prosecutors, police; and most of all the bankers that launder the drug money. Also, the more money the government spends, the more we are in debt to the IMF. Our tax dollars are dispersed to the government in the form of loans in which we have to pay interest on; which between the interest on the national debt and the loans themselves wipes out all income tax dollars taken in. Plus we have to barrow additional funds from the federal reserve because we are current running a budget deficit of 1.5 trillion. All this is creating is government intrusion, and the lose of civil liberties. Do you want the international banks that run and own this country to keep taxing us and inflating us into submission....they are the enemy! "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.-Thomas Jefferson That's what we have now, the banks, the government, and the major corporations of the world are basically partners who work in cooperation with one another. Stand for liberty! Stand for limited government, because Absolute power corrupts absolutely. And that's what this government has done. They use drugs to pay for covert wars that congress either forbid, or they want to keep there distance from. The drug war created the prison industrial complex, and we have one of the largest, if not the largest prison populations in the world. People need to wake up, and stop being complacent. Challenge big government bureaucratic policies that have brainwashed and sold out this country. Take your country back!

It's not fair to make assumptions based on what you read in the news. In my personal opinion of him, he's a good person who just got mixed up in this fast and easy lifestyle. Not justifying what he's done, just saying if you don't personally know him, then shut up. He's in enough trouble as it is. I know a much different side to him and I also know personally what he does for the people he cares about and it is out of love!

So you are saying leave this guy alone, it's just free enterprise??? Crack is killing children, and children are killing for crack and you think the govt. should stay out of it. You need to seek help.

Yeah he's a gem. I pay taxes on income I earn from educating children. Many of them are crack babies, who live lives you couldn't imagine. I should be thankful to him for keeping me in business? GO TO HELL!

You had the same violence during prohibition. As I said before only parents, community leaders and educators can prevent drugs; laws by federal bureaucrats only increase drug use, because as soon as you prevent something it becomes cool. Also you should educate yourself about the Contra movement, and how the former head of the DEA Rob Bonner went on 60minutes and admitted that tons of cocaine were smuggled into this country in order to fund the Contra movement. Ask yourself this. If your government participates in the importation of drugs, then puts it own people in prison for using or selling them, then are you really living in a free country? There is an 18,000% mark up on cocaine. You cannot fight the market with a law, the market is more power than the law. The only way is too legalize all drugs, and have state licensing laws like we do for alcohol. Children also turn to illegal drugs because they are easier to get because no one asks for ID. You would have less usage, less violence, less prisons, and you wouldn't have only a few cartels and government officials benefiting from the illegality. Yes I realize personal responsibility is difficult but, isn't that freedom. Maybe we should stop using freedom as a slogan and practice it for a change. The drug laws are only another excuse to monitor us, and destroy privacy. Also people, just because you morally disagree with something, doesn't mean you should have a law to prevent others from doing things who may have a completely different set of morals then you. Cigarettes and alcohol are legal, so they are not protecting people, so don't even say that. Bottom line, the crusade against drugs should not be fought in the halls of congress, but by the good people who make up this nation. I believe we are capable of solving many problems on our own through the private sector and exercising our constitutional rights of free speech, instead of putting drug addicts in jail where they can get drugs even easier than on the outside. Your hearts in the right place but...."Absolute power corrupts absolutely" Also the Coalition For a Drug Free America is funded by the alcohol and tobacco industry, for the purpose of making a distinction between the illegal drugs and their legal products which can be just as destructive. The definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results. We've given this unconstitutional approach over 30yrs to work it's magic, and it has only fueled the fire. Time to wake up!!!!!!

You should learn to read instead of just baaaa ing like a sheep and just going with the flow. It's funny how you aren't capable of responding and debating in a specific intelligent manner. You need to seek help on how use your brain.

You should read the constitution.... I realize believing in the constitution is a radical thing these days...but you should try it. You need to read up on monetary policy because it's obvious the finances go over your head. You need to pick up a history book and read more on U.S. Foreign policy. All this stuff is related, but you can't see it because you won't open your mind. I actually went to a seminar where a group of state police officers from Texas came to speak about ending the drug war; they were on the front lines for over 20yrs and lost many friends and killed many others...only to see their efforts wasted. Also they pointed that as soon as you take out a cartel, another one replaces it. The market is more powerful than the law you idiot. Yeah lets keep up all this useless spending because it makes you feel better...lol. The purchasing power of the dollar is down over 90% since WWII, and this is happening because of over taxation, inflation and too much spending. Why do you think we have 2 family income households now a days. This is why our kids are being raised by daycare and TV. "Lawlessness leads to violence"..I laughed at that one. Yeah that's why after prohibition was repealed that the violence and bloodshed stopped and we didn't have bad liquor poisoning people. The problem with a guy like you is you think that there is a simple answer to everything. Your idealistic drug war has done nothing to curb usage. Also you never commented about kids being able to get illegal drugs easier than legal drugs because drug dealers don't ask for ID. The definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results. So when are we suppose to win this war, in another 30 years...lol. Throughout most of this countries history we didn't have federal drug laws and we survived just fine. Yes my posts are long, but the topic isn't simple...only you are!

Your topic is long because you're stimulated by the drugs you want legalized. You believe that illicit narcotics will save our country and I believe you haven't slept since the Dead concert. Failing health and schools. Will cocaine cure that too?

You are on the wrong post, this guy deserves prison and so does his mother!

This case is a symptom of the system. If you really cared about kids not using drugs, you would support state licensing laws like they have for alcohol, so it wouldn't be as easy for kids to get. Also I don't do coke nor do I morally support it, but unlike you I don't think my morals should be placed on others. You are too stubborn to look at both sides or even challenge the economics because you don't understand it; so you give up and just sling mud. Also the comment about the dead is funny, because I'm not a bleeding heart hippy liberal. I'm a true conservative when it comes to foreign policy, monetary policy, and the role government should have in society. And if you knew what a true conservative was than you would know that from my positions on the blog that I am one. Try to be specific instead of just name calling. Better yet, read some books for a change, and get back to me in about a year, because you know nothing about history, politics, or economics.

You go to hell and take your mama with you a-hole. I never said he's a gem. All I am saying is you don't know him, all you know is the judgment you see in the news. You people act like he's a child mollestor. BTW, for an "advocate", you obviously don't respect others opinions and appear to be a violater of my freedom of speech. It's really brave to tell someone to go to hell, why don't you put your name on it tough guy!
