Who is this guy trying to kiss-butt too? Has he even done any research of his own or just spouting baseless propaganda? Is he willing to take on the ENTIRE chemical industry, including MONSANTO AND DOW? Is he wiling to go up AGAINST C.I.A. & D.E.A.? Can he even standup to the notorious coal boss Don Blankenship?

Somehow this just seems like an opportunist trying to make some brownie-points with someone, nothing more than pandering via fear-mongering.

How do you plan on doing what the ENTIRE US gov't has NOT been able to do since Nixon created this BS boondoggle "war" that is really just a vehicle to maintain CORRUPTION?!?

here is a peek at some previous FAILURES to do as your squaking about ....

So should he just do nothing? Should he just sit back and watch the state a state of pill-popping zombies like some bad Walking Dead spinoff?
Just curious what your thoughts are...

I didn't see MJ mentioned anywhere, just Rx and meth.
.
ironically, if MJ were available legally, and/or prescribed as much as some pain killers, this probably wouldn't be such an epidemic.
.
good on them for trying to address the problem, instead of looking the other way.
it's time to start putting drug addicts into rehab programs instead of prisons.

When spending the PEOPLE's money to persecute those VERY PEOPLE doing nothing is preferreable when the REAL problem is INTERNAL from within the gov't itself. Without a comprehensive and REAL "house-cleaning" it only becomes another FRAUDULENT activity funded by tax-payers!

American Drug War: The Last WHITE Hope ...

The involvement of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in cocaine trafficking in Central America during the Reagan Administration as part of the Contra war in Nicaragua has been the subject of several official and journalistic investigations since the mid-1980s. Among MANY other examples, here is just a mere sampling of its GLOBAL operations ...

On December 20, 1985, these and other charges were laid out in an Associated Press article after an extensive investigation which included interviews with "officials from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Customs Service, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Costa Rica's Public Security Ministry, as well as rebels and Americans who work with them." Five American Contra supporters who worked with the rebels confirmed the charges, noting that "two Cuban-Americans used armed rebel troops to guard cocaine at clandestine airfields in northern Costa Rica. They identified the Cuban-Americans as members of the 2506 Brigade, an anti-Castro group that participated in the 1961 Bay of Pigs attack on Cuba. Several also said they supplied information about the smuggling to U.S. investigators." One of the Americans "said that in one ongoing operation, the cocaine is unloaded from planes at rebel airstrips and taken to an Atlantic coast port where it is concealed on shrimp boats that are later unloaded in the Miami area."

On March 16, 1986, the San Francisco Examiner published a report on the "1983 seizure of 430 pounds of cocaine from a Colombian freighter" in San Francisco which indicated that a "cocaine ring in the San Francisco Bay area helped finance Nicaragua's Contra rebels." Carlos Cabezas, convicted of conspiracy to traffic cocaine, said that the profits from his crimes "belonged to... the Contra revolution." He told the Examiner, "I just wanted to get the Communists out of my country." Julio Zavala, also convicted on trafficking charges, said "that he supplied $500,000 to two Costa Rican-based Contra groups and that the majority of it came from cocaine trafficking in the San Francisco Bay area, Miami and New Orleans."

Former DEA agent Celerino Castillo alleged that during the 1980s Ilopango Airport in El Salvador was used by Contras for drug smuggling flights with the knowledge and complicity of the CIA. These allegations were part of an investigation by the United States Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General. Castillo also testified before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Between 1996 and 1998 the Central Intelligence Agency investigated and then published a report about its alleged involvement in cocaine sales in the US. This was prompted by the journalist Gary Webb's report in the San Jose Mercury News alleging that the CIA was behind the 1980s crack epidemic. Gary Webb alleged through his Dark Alliance series that the government had been complicit in the trade of drugs in the inner city through the use of a kingpin named Freeway Ricky Ross. According to the Oakland Tribune, "In the course of his rise, prosecutors estimate that Ross exported several tons of cocaine to New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and elsewhere, and made more than $600 million in the process."
