My assessment of you is correct. War is detrimental in more than one way.

Vietnam war...

In 1971, 1 in 20 Vietnam (soldier) returnees tested positive for opiates in their urine (Goodwin et al, 1975). 50% of soldiers surveyed had experimented with heroin while in Vietnam, and 20% had used it frequently (Goodwin et al, 1975). The users ranged from those who socially snorted to those shooting 250 mg every couple of hours (Holloway, 1974).

Afghanistan...

The number of American soldiers seeking treatment for opiate abuse has skyrocketed over the past five years, at a time when the U.S. military has been surging forces into the heart of the world's leading opium producer.

Pentagon statistics obtained by FoxNews.com show that the number of Army soldiers enrolled in Substance Abuse Program counseling for opiates has soared nearly 500 percent -- from 89 in 2004 to 529 last year.

And THAT is how war and drugs are intertwined. How do you suppose the private military industrial complex got started? By sending SOLDIERS to prison for a opiate habit that got started when they were drafted and sent to Vietnam...by who? That's right...the military war machine. Oh..it's true...You really don't have the imagination for reality.

So I'm pro-war now? Weird. I had no idea Kreskin had psychic children.

People are sent to prison for crimes. Addiction is not a crime. I will admit though that many addicts turn to crime to support their habit. However, most addicts keep their habit to themselves.

You're still trying to make this personal and I'm not inclined to play such a childish game with you. Next I expect to hear the CIA crack conspiracy. 3.......2......1......

"Your logic would assume the person in charge of our country is a drug runner."
How silly. The president of a country doesn't run the drugs...their designated people do. CIA, independent contractors...
Heads of countries NEVER get their hands dirty.
Once again, this is NOT about race, it's about corruption. I didn't mention the fact that 27% of Atalanta police are hired by the mayor and police chief because it isn't the subject and it does nothing to address corruption. Got that? This is about CORRUPTION...NOT RACE!
This government has been running drugs for a long time. Reagan was involved. GHW Bush was/is involved, Clinton was/is involved, GW Bush was/is involved... Fast and Furious.... Not only was the US government caught red handed giving military grade weapons to a Mexican drug cartel, the Justice Department and Eric Holder attempted to cover it up. Obama said he was backing off prosecuting medical marijuana dispensaries...NOT! The opium production is up for the third year in poppy fields guarded by the U.S.. Obama has done nothing but follow the Bush doctrine...which includes drug policy. There is plenty of evidence of drug running since Jimmy Carter.. Bush's and Clinton's and no one has been prosecuted..lots of people murdered though. What makes you think it all stopped with Obama? It hasn't... If you're looking for proof positive for Obama's involvement there won't be any until he is not in office and then it will be a few years before the truth is known. Is heroin flooding the street of America...YES IT IS...and people are dying. America is the largest arms dealer...white , gray or black. Does it surprise you that the U.S. runs drugs too?
This is one post in which you accused obama and Holder. Eric Holder is responsible for putting into reality the wishes of obama. You wrote it, and then accused me of not having the capacity to read it. I would like the evidence that obama is guilty rather than just your opinion. When I asked for evidence you wouldn't provide it. Bless your little heart.

If addiction isn't a crime, as YOU claim, why then are there so many in prison for JUST drugs?

FACT: The U.S.A. has 5% of the worlds population but houses 25% of the world's prisoners.

FACT: More than half of federal prisoners are incarcerated for drug crimes in 2010. Despite more relaxed attitudes among the public at large toward non-violent offenses like marijuana use, the number of people in federal prison for drug offenses spiked from 74,276 in 2000 to 97,472 in 2010, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

FACT: In STATE prisons...58% of drug prisoners an estimated 124,885 inmates have no history of violence
or high level drug activity

FACT: Three-quarters of the drug offenders in state prisons have only been convicted of drug and/or non-violent offenses; one-third of the total have only been convicted of drug crimes.

FACT: combine state and local spending on everything from drug-related arrests to prison, the total cost adds up to at least $51 billion per year. Over four decades, the group says, American taxpayers have dished out $1 trillion on the drug war.

I agree, it's a thin distinction. Addiction is not illegal, but having drugs is. Drug testing has opened up a whole new market for discrimination, but addicts have always faced this. Even legal addictions are being used for discrimination, legally.

Corporations are free to discriminate on the basis of fat, tobacco use, alcohol use, skin diseases and all sorts of manufactured reasons. I personally don't think the war on drugs will ever end. Marijuana seemed to be making progress under Bush (oddly enough, but has been hit hard during the Obama administration.

And that's probably the biggest indication of what a con our 2-party system is. BOTH sides are keeping the drug war going. Clinton drove pot arrests to record numbers. Reagan turned it into a real shooting war (with the robbery of personal property as a bonus). And Obama is doing NOTHING about the disproportionate number of black men in prison for drug crimes. Why? Because even if he lets them out, they can't vote for democrats.

So he'd rather "import" new voters. Everyone else just looks the other way.

When someone asks for evidence of your claims that the leaders of countries including obama and Holder are guilty of drugs being in America it makes you send this you tube, why? This you tube is nothing but your malevolent twisted attempt to hide the fact that you don't have any evidence. Telling the truth and asking for the truth has never been a troll characteristic.

Why not? It keeps her from having to address the real issue. It's not the poor black kids fault that he's a drug dealer, it's whitey's fault. It's not the fault of black "fathers" who hit & git, it's whitey's fault.

War is just this person's way of deflecting the reason into yet another direction. But it will ultimately come back to being whitey's fault. After all, whitey starts all the wars. Right?

You're right about the two party system. That's not what we really have, is it? You're right about Obama not doing anything about letting people out of prison for drug crimes. They would be needing jobs. There aren't any. The soldiers will be coming home from Afghanistan soon...there will be not jobs for those people either. Obama KNOWS THIS! That's the real reason why Obama hasn't brought them home or stopped the war on drugs. Also the prison industrial (privatized prisons) complex and all the "counseling services" and drug testing labs would lose too much money. Opps.. there goes more jobs. Obama's a tool of the international banking cartels. I know about the action to discriminate with legal substances by corporations. That is why I boycott Scott's Lawn care products. I noticed they were punishing employees for smoking cigarettes in THEIR OWN HOMES. As to felons not voting..that is up to the individual states. A felon can have voting rights restored. Then they can vote any way they want too. Note..in Canada the ballets are delivered to the prisons. EVERYONE has a chance to participate in the countries future. The Canadian government understand that these prisoners will be released back into the general population of Canada.

"I personally don't think the war on drugs will ever end."

Ohhh... I'm more optimistic than you. The war on alcohol (prohibition) ended. The pot smoking boomers are getting older and we've had enough of this "war on everything". There is much VOTING going on the end this atrocities being heaped on the American people under the guise of "the War on Something". Don't like a corporations policies? Then don't work for them or do business with them. Boycotts do work!(just ask "Oh what a Rush" Limbaugh or the Beckster.)They have both been banished to the nether land of the internet. Thank you for a thoughtful post.
