Yur posts are way too long fool, shorten them up sum if u want people to read them.
And yours are too short. You have to have some content or nobody will realize they have read them.

Of course making them longer is no guarantee you'll have anything meaningful to say. So, go ahead, keep them short. Fool you.

As a matter of fact, I have a close relative who has worked as a deputy sheriff assigned to an undercover narcotics unit for nearly 20 years. He makes nearly $100K a year. Only the drug dealers make more than that. And if those drugs were legal, both he and the drug dealers would have to find something else to do for a living.
But I guess maybe you have a point. Legalizing drugs would increase unemployment. Maybe if we made more things illegal we'd have full employment.
The best indication of the failure of the war on drugs is that more people than ever are using them, more people are dying from violence associated with the illegal trade, and more money than ever is being spent on enforcement.
Reminds me of Vietnam. Imagine what we could have done with all the money spent on that failure. Imagine what we could have done with all the money spent in Iraq. Cure cancer? End hunger? Reduce taxes?
We'll spend more on the war on drugs next year. More people will use drugs next year. More people will die in drug cartel violence.
But I guess if I were in law enforcement, i'd see things differently. I'd be cashing big checks in return for chasing people around for growing and selling plants. And I sure as hell wouldn't want anyone to take that life away from me just because my job was a complete failure.
If that were to ever happen, I'd probably have to start hitting the bottle pretty hard. But at least that stuff is legal.
Close relative doesn't count....ugh dumb, ignorant people!!!!
