I think narcotics are probably the single biggest problem we face. The effects drugs like crystal meth and crack cocaine have are wide ranging. It starts with kids doing bad in school. Once a person becomes addicted to these drugs, nothing else is important to them.
They will do whatever it takes to get the drugs. They are no longer rational. A person high on narcotics sees things different than a normal person. They have hallucinations, they are delusional. They will steal anything from anybody. This leads to violence.
The people that will benifit from this budget cut will be the gang members on the street selling drugs to kids and killing anybody that tries to get in their way. The problem has already spiraled out of control. We should be doing more, not less.

Until prohibition is repealed and drugs are legalized so that they can be effectively regulated and controlled, we will have illegal drug money fueling gangs, cartels and terrorists; a deep hole in our public budgets; millions of Americans with criminal records removed from the productive arenas of education and the workplace; lack of respect for the rule of law; the list is almost endless.
Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP) is a 12,000-member organization started by police, prosecutors, judges, FBI/DEA agents, corrections officials, military and others who fought on the front lines of the war on drugs and who know firsthand that prohibition only worsens drug addiction and drug market violence problems.
