Reverse Drug stings are nothing more than law enforcement offering drug sales to people this is unacceptable for anyone to break the law thinking they are enforcing the law, this is what has lead America to becoming nothing more than a gulag prison camp, modern slavery, exploitation of the poor, and to think once this country had liberty, well its far from that now, soon we will have nothing more than razor wire and concert for the citizens. All because of a drug war that most Americans do not even want.
Ooh, what kind of concert? I want middle seats, the speakers are bad for your hearing.

Mike , could not have said it better myself. I am mentally arming my mind for the coming insurrection. It's already happening most Americans don't believe anything the system says anymore. It is all lies and corruption, at some point it becomes like Marilyn Manson sung:

we don't need credibility cuz we're fuckin incredible

First off, I know that buying and selling is against the law... So now that that's out of the way,......

I always found it funny that Law Enforement can bust you for selling drugs obviously but then they can possess the drugs, and sell them to somebody and then bust the person for buying.. What a messed up world!! I understand settin upa dealer that wants to buy 50 kilos or whatever... But posting as a street dealer and busting the addict for a small, personal use amount if any drug is just screwed up!!!

racist in the sense that cops would try to bust smal time users. i mean really, is the justice system so desperate for money that they need to do that to get people wrapped up in the "probation game", or do they think this will help them win the never ending war on drugs, because let me say 2 things. 1 the war on drugs will never end because if someone wants to get high, they will.. by all means available. 2.) the people they need to bust are to distributors and suppliers since thats who is keeping the use of drugs rampat in america, not to mention the drug cartels and the cia. i mean comeone, mexico was seriously considering making all drugs legal this year (yes there was a bill for this) to curve the violence from the drug cartels. atleast one american country realizes this war is something that cannot be "won"

How is busting small time users racist? 1. Crackers are just as likely to use drugs as anyone else 2. It's more costly to keep them in Jail and provide a public defender

I would agree that the war on drugs will likely never cease in this America. The reason being exactly why Idaho and a few other states gives such severe penalties for even the most petty of crimes: the industry created by penal systems. Cops, prison guards, parole officers, and high ranking officials who are being paid copious sums of money by criminal networks. War is the same way. We go into Iraq for the wrong reason. Why, because Halliburton Enterprises makes billions of dollars when war happens. Many others make alot from these choices as well. It's really quite pathetic that our gov't is so corrupt that they would rather it's citizens be the victims of all kinds of crime, mostly theft, because someone needs to get their fix. I'm not putting down the majority of people who use drugs. It should be anyone's right to do with their body whatever they want as long as it doesn't harm others.

It is always good to check recommendations before using recreational drugs. But if i am unwed will the Clearwater Police stack charges, and demand stiffer penalties if i am under the influence wile committing the crime of helping a 19 year old unwed mom purchase food for her baby? Does this drug supplier require a copy of my marriage license before selling a recreational drug?

Please read the book before thumping. There are thousands of religious leaders who misquote the letter from God. Nobody will be taken anywhere. Watch Shepard's Chapel if you don't want to read the bible. Chapter by Chapter, verse by verse.

well the good news is that 16 of the states have already made legal amrijuana available with a card.. i would imagine the rest will now follow suit. after this goes on for a period of maybe 10 years, you will notice drugs systematically being decriminalized because lets face it, its a loosing battle. look at mexico, they made small amounts of personal use legal and are having no problems with that, but the problems they are having reside in the cartels who feed americas never ending demand for dope. if we legalize it, we will stop violence here, but abroad. the gov't is ridiculous, if we have freedom, give us the freedom to make our own damn decisions

Well, my conclusion to this so called war oon drugs is this: I believe that its a huge waste of money and resources. bottom line. think of the money our goverment wastes trying to make arrests or gather information, and secondly think of the resources (man power/hours) used (better term would be wasted) on stake outs, intellegence, and judicial process. Not to mention the fact that the majority of the prison population (considering also that its over crowded) is in prison for a drug conviction that wasnt even a viollent crime, plus how much we spend to house these individuals. I read it costs the state something like $28,000 a year to house and feed each inmate every year. this is ridiculous. I mean, at that rate, they should be able to just provide everyone in the united states with a job that pays that. Im sure it would be more condusive. Furthermore.. is rehabilitating an individual for a period of 1 - 5 years in jail something that you would think would conform them to become "NON-ADDICTS"? If anything, these people do more drugs in jail then on the streets. All this institutionalization does is teach people how to become better criminals. Its like college for junkies. Really. i think the concensus is something ridiculous like, 1 out of 20 inmates (2.5%) arrested for some sort of drug charge actually succeed in turning their life around and staying sober for a period of more then 5 years of their release.(not to mention that after 5 years, a majority of them go back to using) What about the other 97.5% that become repeat offenders. These statistics are just down right ridiculous. how can they say that the "system" is working when the proof IS NOT in the pudding? Now dont get me wrong, i do believe that actions and certain litigation should be processed, however, the current penalties are way out of line. They should consider programs, fines, and removing jail time if there is no harm toward another individual. Anyone agree with me?
