On the flip side of the coin my friend, are the innocent children and community that suffer because of drug addiction, drug use, drug abuse and drug sales.I question the morals, intelligence and social responsibility of those who support the drug war. They THINK they are protecting the public but they are actually putting the public in danger.
Why do people think drugs can be controlled by arresting people? After doing it for a century things have gotten WORSE not BETTER. We must consider the effects of such foolish policies.
The drugs are going to STAY whether people like it or not. If arresting people deters drug dealers and users then why does our drug problem get worse every year?
It's simple; by outlawing drugs we are raising the profit margin for those who are willing to break the law, attracting MORE dealers, NOT FEWER!
People who are arrested for drugs are VICTIMS of a failed policy. In the future the police officers on the front-lines of this destructive drug war will be laughed at for their efforts.
Shame on Canandaigua police for wasting our time and money and ruining the lives of people who do not deserve it!
Sorry to say that from 1985-2009 cocaine/crack and heroin has done nothing but destroy.
You guys can fight all you want on the "marijuanna" issue is it right or wrong.
We know that there has never been anyone to overdose off of marijuanna. But cocaine, heroin, crystal meth and crack. GET EVERY DROP OFF OF THE STREETS IF YOU CAN, AND THOSE WHO DISTRIBUTE AND SELL IT.
These drugs and even the gateway drug marijuanna have a direct link to the homicide rates in the African American community.
Me personally, I would prefer to see the druggies doing marijuanna then alcohol, cocaine, heroin, Meth and crack.
