I’ve been saying this for years now. If it worked in Switzerland, why wouldn’t it work for us. It’s a deeper problem then what’s presented here. Big pharmaceutical companies also try to push hospitals to prescribe prescription opioids to people. Those people end up getting addicted, get cut off from their supply, and then they search for harder drugs that give them the same feeling. That doesn’t mean they deserve to be incarcerated though; they need help.

Parabéns pelo canal! Vivo no Brasil, onde a guerra às drogas tem cada vez mais se intensificado, gerando mais violência e preconceito. Um candidato a presidência soube se aproveitar do medo e do preconceito das pessoas, está prestes a ser eleito com base no discurso de "bandido bom é bandido morto". E quando você tenta conversar com as pessoas, elas acabam te chamando de "comunista" não dando a menor importância pra seus argumentos. É muito triste ver meu pais indo mais uma vez no caminho da ditadura militar.

The War on Drugs is all about inconsistency. It should be called The War on Drugs except for alcohol, tobacco, pharmaceuticals, and coffee. Cuz the war on drugs only targets particular drugs, not all drugs. Wow. Amazing how much society has corrupted the word "drug". smh.

Chris Bacus (3 дня назад)
A war on drugs is ultimately not effective. People turn to drugs and other addictions to escape problems and numb themselves temporarily. It's a coping mechanism that is brief yet solves nothing. The right answer is to address the underlying hurts, traumas and tragedies that people cannot handle about their lives on their own. A 'war on drugs' starts with embracing people's humanity and fundamental need for relationships. Making meaningful connections with others is the opposite of addiction.

The war on drugs is a lie! It was always a lie and it will always be a lie. This lie wouldn’t even exist without these pig fucking politicians pushing their delusional make believe on society. Everything these idiots have done claiming to combat drugs, actually encourage it more. Our governments stupid, laws and restrictions are the criminals biggest money maker. The only way to truly shut down the black market sale of anything, is to take the value out of the product. Their laws and restrictions only enrich the supply and demand which raises the price! Either the government has a stock pile of drugs they want to capitalize on, or the political pig fuckers representing our country are completely stupid. Either way, their fat greedy asses need removed from power! A government, for the people, we have not! The opioid epidemic was created by our elected retards as well. They restricted opiate pharmaceuticals and heroin use skyrocketed as a result of that. Afghanistan happened to have one of the largest opium stocks in world and we just come out of a very long war with them not, so long ago. Our so, called elected representatives are supposed to have the people’s best interest at heat instead of their own selfish agendas! People, we are electing criminals, fools, and greed machines to run our nation, and they are running our nation into the goddamned ground! That’s on us!

seth green I guess you got me there. But video games don’t have addictive properties, now do they? Heroin is wired for you to become addicted to it. Maybe if more funding went towards protecting children from neglectful parents, it would work out.
seth green (3 дня назад)
+Vegan Atheist ummm... alcohol... literal poison is legally distributed buddy... i get where you're coming from and yes the effects from drugs not only on the user but those around them can be devastating but there's no reason someone should be locked up or seen as a criminal because they want to get high... as I've already said most issues commonly associated with drugs have been caused by the fact that they are illegal... cartels wouldnt exist if it werent for the drug war... laced drugs which attribute to more than half of all overdoses would not be a problem if it werent for the drug war... perfectly viable medicines such as weed or even acid would be more readily available if it werent for the drug war... theres such a negative connotation when it comes to drugs and there really shouldn't yeah some people waste their lives getting high or even neglect their kids because they gotta chase that high and that honestly sucks but the same thing could be said for a million other things too some parents just play video games all day and neglect their kids so should we ban video games now?

Additionally, I found that the annual budget was around 2 billion dollars for 2014.

You missed the point, the war on drug was never intended to solve the problem of drug or even to lower drug use. Even a toddler could figure out after 5 minutes that it has no chance of successfully doing that.
Mixup 221 (7 дней назад)
Illegalizing drugs is like telling kids not to use swears it just makes them swear more. Also your totally right about how the potency and overdose rates go up. One thing I’ll disagree with you on was when you slipped in white kids doing more drugs and getting arrested less. There was no data on that besides black kids getting arrested more. There was no data on white kids doing drugs more. That’s a pretty annoying tactic on pushing the agenda of white privilege. Anyway I really liked all the other arguments in this video and how they were backed up with hard facts.

It will work... and no government should have the right to tell the governed what they can and can't put in their own bodies... that's bullshit...
Here is what I got from this video. Continue the war on drugs just change it up a bit. -No more prison sentences for using drugs -More rehabilitation -Education for people to learn not to give money to criminal gangs and cartels because they use it to continue criminal activity. -Work with more countries governments and private organizations to shut down criminal organizations and decrease drug usage.

American democracy is dead. Politicians do not represent the peoples majority opinion. Prohibition continues while over 2/3 agree with at least portions of this argument. Arrests, violence, cartels, overdoses, misinformation, stigma, and other negative effects ofnthe Drug War will continue as we sit back. Take action. Vote. Demand policy change. Join the peoples movement. End corporate, pharmacutical, and lobby control, their interests differ and oppose those of the American.

maybe we should rethink schools being defenseless gun free zones and figure out why suddenly people would what to murder *defenseless innocent people also knowing its next to suicide, we also have a huge mental and drug problem in this country and its they cant use gun theyll use bombs, cars, planes whatever they can do to make people as miserable as they are regardless of the tool they use. making gun illegal will push it under ground to criminal operation will take over and considering you can make a gun in your garage with standard equipment, metal, springs and a little know how i dont think we have the resources to fight his
seth green (13 дней назад)
i dont think outright banning guns is the way to go but some kind of reform needs to be made. I dont know how to solve the problem I'm just acknowledging the fact that there is problem and something needs to be done about it.
Minh Triet Vo (13 дней назад)
There's only 3 countries in the world to protect (constitutionally) gun rights: US, Mexico, and Guatemala. Literally the whole world got problem on drugs, but also literally the whole world doesn't have that much gun rights (compare to US, that is). Illegal drug creates broken and impecunious community, while legalize gun creates school shooting. Also, some historian argues that the Second Amendment are primarily to help defend states' right, which is literally, at that time, an excuse to hold up slavery. And our Founding Father fights with musket, not AR-15 and machine gun.

Josue Ravena (19 дней назад)
Here in the Philippines, the current President is doing a campaign on war on drugs. So far, it's going well, but the blood shed and possible hate and protest is inevitable. People who were jailed and pushers who were imprisoned because they can't have self-sustaining jobs that will support their family. Harm Reduction maybe a good idea, but of course how can we maintain that with funding, heroin being abused and some people who tried to overcome their addiction only to succumbed to their death due to overdose.

I can't agree! In korea, people don't use drugs because of strong law.
seth green (11 дней назад)
+호롤롤로 no... like the only drug that could apply to is meth... and as I've already said more harm is caused by the drug laws than the fucking drugs themselves... you can't just go "oh well... side effects... so there..." that's not an argument all that says is you have no fucking idea what you're talking about... a lot of illegal drugs aren't even that bad and every drug that is illegal is more harmful because of the fact that they are illegal...
호롤롤로 (11 дней назад)
If there are no side effects of drugs, there is no reason to disagree. But there are serious side effects. The more drugs you use, the less dopamine receptors and serotonin receptors in the brain, making people more and more painful when they are not used.
seth green (11 дней назад)
+호롤롤로 i wrote it didnt i? People have used drugs for thousands of years and a little law saying no isnt going to stop shit... most of the biggest issues we have with drugs are only an issue because most drugs are illegal...

+seth green ... Do you think that?
seth green (12 дней назад)
+호롤롤로 oh. Well in that case you are still wrong because people in south korea still do drugs... it's totally natural for someone to want to alter their state of mind and there is no reason they should be punished for doing so... and a lot of these "bad" drugs really arent that bad and could potentially help people such as weed or acid or shrooms or mdma and the list can go on and on. No drug is ever really 100% safe even weed has it's downfalls but no government has the right to tell people what they can and cant put in their body...
