Pablo Escobar started selling cocaine to the US in the 70's . Nixon's drug policies started in 1970. The War on Drugs was coined in 1971 and our drug laws go back much farther. Our drug prohibition laws are the only reason violent psychopaths and cartels exist. Look at Prohibition. When alcohol was outlawed the Mafia, Jewish crime syndicates, and the Irish gangs took over and became rich and powerful. How much of the alcohol supply industry is controlled by criminals now? It's just a stupid moral crusade used to line the pockets of those involved in enforcement and politicians. We waist to much money and fill our jails way to full because of this stupid idea.do believe he existed before War on Drugs

By making drugs or any vice illegal we are putting the trade and profits into the most violent of criminals. Not to mention it's no ones business what people choose to put into their body in the first place. Making the drugs illegal has only multiplied the problems for society associated with them. It has done zilch to curb use, curb profits, or mitigate harm. We have no control over the situation as long as there are drug laws.If we didn't have drug laws, being a violent terrorist would no longer be a good way to conduct business.
Seriously Tally, if you disagree say something in defense of drug laws and the War on drugs.
