This is a big bullshit. Fight drugs as hard as you can.
seth green (56 минут назад)
Emanuel Gonçalves Santos no... that's belligerent and moronic... maybe do some research on the prohibition of alcohol and the drug war that has been going on for 50 or so years... prohibition does not work...

Black kids also do drugs in urban centers with the highest likelihood of being caught and with the highest density of cops. That seems to be an unfortunate consequence of environment rather than direct racist policy and judgement. I’ve never come close to getting caught by the cops in the burbs. They catch kids smoking pot of course. But when you can walk into a forest away from people, it’s easier to smoke than in the city where you stink up a whole building.

There’s only two ways to end the war on drugs: The first way would be very undesirable, and would operate a legal system with almost religious rigour. Create clear and concise hardcore drug legislation with no loopholes, and implement the death penalty as the punishment for all drug related crimes including non-violent drug use. This will basically be a drug addict holocaust with the same goal as the original holocaust: purge society from all undesirables so that those that remain will be pure and clean. The second would be a harm-reduction-focused anarcho-capitalist approach to drugs. Make all drugs legal, let the free market produce and sell drugs however they please, and simply make any drugs that have been proven to cause drops in cognition illegal to use while operating machinery (like driving) and any drugs that impair your perception of reality (such as hallucinogens) illegal to use in public. This would get rid of all the main problems drugs cause, no mass incarceration, no gangs, no smuggling, no cartels. And it would still protect the sober from the impaired. There’s no way to make a government mandated recovery program in a country like the u.s. so perhaps drug production companies would have to pay a special income tax that could be waved if they donate enough of their profits to drug addiction recourse charities, this providing a private incentive to fund drug addiction rehab rather than a government funded one that a) won’t work in the u.s. and b) due to the culture of the u.s. people will refuse the help anyways

This is almost exactly the case when trying to ban guns. America’s gun violence problem isn’t a gun problem, it’s something else. The solution lies in education and care rather than bans and prohibition.

Thank you! There’s so much explained in this video that no one ever thinks about. Everyone says “drugs are bad get rid of them and the people who use them” without thinking about the effects of the methods we use.
seth green (52 минуты назад)
Rocko paws yes. And also just like with drugs there needs to be better regulation. I dont know what but something needs to be done that allows law abiding citizens to legally own a firearm and keeps guns out of the hands of people who shouldn't have them. The biggest issue i see is some of the current regulation isnt even being fully enforced.

The simple solution to the incarceration problem is the death penalty for all drug related offenses.
seth green (50 минут назад)
luke peace ok but why??? Do you seriously not see how immoral that is? No one should be imprisoned or killed simply because they put a substance in their own body... especially when one of the hardest drugs you could ever do which is alcohol is totally legal...

hieu Cu (6 дней назад)
people want more of what they can have less, it's the universal truth. When drugs are hard to get, people desire them more and are willing to pay any price for it, that means when drugs are legally obtainable, people will care less for them and the ones who seek them will be able to use them safely under professional supports. Someone wants heroin? I say give them, or the cartels will.

Around 4:25 the facts on that are a little skewed. Per your source, stated "Whites were about 45 percent more likely than blacks to sell drugs in 1980....that 6.6 percent of white adolescents and young adults (aged 12 to 25) sold drugs, compared to just 5.0 percent of blacks (a 32 percent difference)." Although this fact is true, what is not being said is that 6.6 percent of 73% of the population is actually a smaller amount per capita then 5.0 of 16% of the population. To make this easier, lets assume that we have a population of 100. So 6.6 divided by 73 gives you .09 while 5.0 of 16 gives you .31. So adjusted to 100, 9 out of 100 whites sold drugs while 31 out of 100 blacks sold drugs, actually making black children 4 times more likely to be selling drugs. Just saying.

No drugs = No Problems is acutally true. So maybe think about our shity system, because drugs are wanted. Thus, Problems are real. Change the system, not the cry for help.

theblackbull55 (10 дней назад)
Punishing drug users by throwing them in prison while destroying their future makes no sense. They need help, and they're not gonna find it by being locked up with criminals, and when they get out they are gonna have a hard time getting a job or even a appartment cuse of being convicted in the past. Thats what makes people poor and homeless.

Gregor Coetzee did you not read what i said... yeah alcohol is fucking bad for you... but guess what, people will drink and do other drugs regardless of what some dinky law says and more harm is being caused by these stupid drug laws than the drugs themselves...
Gregor Coetzee (10 дней назад)
seth green in South Africa (where I live) the population of fetal alcohol syndrome children has grown exponentially in the last 10 years with signs of the condition being hereditary due to the early damage alcohol causes to the genetic make up of a human in the womb. If you believe that the masses can be trusted with not abusing something as addictive as drugs then you are welcome to do so.. but be forewarned.. those who eventually end up having to act as caretakers for populations of people who can no longer look after themselves have a threshold of tolerance. If the burden becomes to great the degradation of society will become irreversible.
seth green (10 дней назад)
Gregor Coetzee it actually would solve a lot... just look at the prohibition of alcohol, we saw that alcohol was a bad destructive hard drug so we made it illegal however that proved to only cause more issues so we decided to legalize and REGULATE the drug reducing the overall harm caused by it. Clearly there are still issues with alcohol but nowhere near as many as if it were still illegal...

Living flower Jazz and Rock would still be here without drugs but it would sound different . It would sound like John Denver and Elvis Presley. I listen to Beatles CAN , David Bowie , jimi Hendrix Miles Davis and Bob Marley . Remember Psyedelics and Cannabis are different that cocaine ,meth , heroin and alcohol. . The later are stimulants and sedatives with are addictive and in some cases can cause the user to choke on his or her vomit . Sedatives can shut down your c,n,s, stopping the gag-reflex from working .

Neszter Akos you said alcohlol is different from cannabis because people drink it for the taste and not to get intoxicated. That is bull crap . I worked in a store stocking shelves with non - alcoholic beer and non - alcohol wine . Guess what ? Nobody buys the stuff . The only people buying non - alcoholic beer are recovering alcoholics .

So, it would seem the war on drugs ultimately works in favour of those it seeks to 'eradicate' while working against those it seeks to 'protect'. One could easily be forgiven for thinking the war on drugs was created solely for this purpose while being 'marketed' as the complete opposite 🤔.

I don't care about pot, however heavier drugs like cocaine, heroin, and meth need to be dealt with seriously. I've seen meth heads break into stores and shoot people because they need the money for their fix. They don't give a crap who they hurt and because of that mentality I could care less if they end up in prison. Sober or not they made choices to get to their position.

seth green I have acknowledged it, but it's simply not enough data though. When you make furniture do you measure once and go for it? No, that's how you get unlevel crap furniture, you measure constantly over the course of a build to make sure it's right.

Someone Special i think 50+ fucking years of locking people up should give us enough data to know making drugs illegal just wont fucking work... even 12 years is enough to know that decriminalization works much better than criminalization...
Someone Special (15 дней назад)
seth green using one country as an example of how things should work doesn't mean it works for everyone. Decriminalization to a degree might work here but full blown decriminalization would likely back fire and make things worse. Besides we will see where they are at in 100 years time and we will have better data to look at.

It is still a long way out of hell, the war on drugs has become a drug itself for the people who earn from it... they and their allies in the governments won't give up their fixes easily.... Look at how difficult is to legalize the almost harmless cannabis throughout the world! Here in Italy we have the mafia earning vast amounts of money from it and their henchmen in politics are doing everything they can to sink every proposition in piles of emendments so that it will not pass the initial scrutiny....Even the politician who gave his name to a recent law proposition about legalization didn't come to vote for it..... what a fucked up world we live in....
