The War on Drugs Is a Failure

The term “War on Drugs” was first used by President Richard Nixon in 1971.

ONDCP’s view is that “drug addiction is a disease that can be successfully prevented and treated… making drugs more available will make it harder to keep our communities healthy and safe.”(2011) One of the alternatives that Mr Kerlikowske has showcased is Sweden’s Drug Control Policies that combine balanced public health approach and opposition to drug legalization.

    The? Feds never had that potential and never will. That is why the Feds need to stick to their job, protecting the borders; a job they refuse to do. They want to play games instead of doing their job.

    The height of ignorance: Two states, Colorado and Washington, just voted to allow legal recreational possession of Marijuana; at the same time, New York and other states are making soft drinks illegal.
