When the US drug Czar (what is that?) Gil K starts making sweeping statements about drug reform and legalization that include terminology like 'silver bullets' is time to put this all back into context.
Drug reform is not about mythological creatures or things we don't understand. Its quite simple really.
The US lead Prohibition "War on Drugs" is a war on drug users, farmers, poor people, minorities and women and children.
All this misinformation and half truths from men who take drugs themselves- just legal and government subsidised forms such as alcohol and tobacco is a disgrace.
Human nature and addiction is complex no doubt but prohibition only makes everything a whole lot worse.
There is a old native American Indian proverb that says:
"You cannot wake up someone who is pretending to be asleep"
This is the problem .
The truth has been and is as we speak being distorted and people are being manipulated by powerful legal drug using men to maintain power and control. Legalize and regulate all drugs and drug markets. Educate the people. Power to the people.
