The argument shouldn’t be “marijuana is safe” or “mdma can help with PTSD”. The argument should always be “it is my body and I can do with it whatever I want”

The War on Drugs is over.

I know that we’re no where near the draconian War on Drugs, but I see enough good news from around the world that everyone is moving towards the ending of drug prohibition that I’m willing to claim that the War on Drugs is finally over. It’s not literally over, but it will come to an end soon enough. 

We should remain vigilant, nonetheless, but we should be hopeful. It’s happening. 

The War On Drugs And The US Government’s Slave Ownership

The 13th Amendment of the United States reads as “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime […]”. You see, slavery was never abolished in America, rumors of such triumph are a lie. Instead, the institution of enslavement was transformed from the fields of the south to the cells of penitentiaries and the slave owners went from racist plantation owners to the United States Government and their private prison partners.

This move from private enslavement to government enslavement was key in winning over the people to allowing slavery to continue in their country. But it wasn’t until the war on drugs kicked off that they systematic enslavement was completed. Minorities in this country went from being punished by picked a plant to being punished for picking a plant.

Today the United States, the self-proclaimed “land of the free” leads the world in incarceration rates. The US also leads the world in non-violent drug related imprisonment. Since 1980, the prison population grew from 500,000 to 2.5 million, with drug offenses leading the way, accounting for nearly 22% of the total. This means that 1 out of every 100 adults in the US is in prison with nearly 1 out of every 4 of them in prison for drug charges.

50 years after the death of MLK and 150 years after the so called end of slavery, we not only have legalized slavery in America that’s paid for by our tax dollars, we have a population of salves that’s growing faster than ever before.

Justice Dept to drop some mandatory drug sentences

Holder will outline the status of a broad, ongoing project intended to improve Justice Department sentencing policies across the country in a speech to the American Bar Association in San Francisco.

"I have mandated a modification of the Justice Department’s charging policies so that certain low-level, nonviolent drug offenders who have no ties to large-scale organizations, gangs, or cartels, will no longer be charged with offenses that impose draconian mandatory minimum sentences," Holder said in remarks prepared for delivery at the conference.

The United States imprisons a higher percentage of its population than other large countries, mostly because of anti-drug laws passed in the 1980s and 1990s.

The laws were politically popular at the time when U.S. crime rates were soaring, and politicians from Republican President Ronald Reagan to Democratic President Bill Clinton championed big spending increases to attack criminal gangs and drug traffickers.

President Barack Obama’s administration is betting that support has eroded because of the financial and social costs of keeping people in prison.

"Too many Americans go to too many prisons for far too long, and for no good law enforcement reason," Holder said.

Justice Department staff have been studying changes since the beginning of the year, about the time that Holder agreed to stay on as the chief U.S. law enforcement official into Obama’s second, four-year term.

The potentially far-reaching overhaul is also expected to include the creation of local guidelines to determine if cases should be subject to federal charges, and an updated plan for release of some federal prison inmates “facing extraordinary or compelling circumstances” but posing no public threat.

Some changes Holder supports - such as giving federal judges the leeway to depart from mandatory minimum sentences for some drug offenses - would require changes in the law.

Whoa. Small victory or a trap?

What’s the bigger crock of shit: War on Drugs or War on Terror?

There’s this show on Spike where undercover cops are watching a drug dealer sell dope in a park. 

They see an older man sit down and buy some dope and then walk away. They wait for him to get far enough that the dealer doesn’t see the bust. Not only do they do this, they explicitly mention it on camera as their objective.

Why do they do this? They want to make sure the dealer keeps dealing so that more “offenders” can be created. This is nothing short of a slave trading post.

These drug consumers will continue to buy from this spot only to get locked up, put into the system and eventually find their way into jail where they are worth $30,000 to $50,000 in labor.

Cogs in the machine. 

Kanye West - New Slave - An Excerpt

They throwing hate at me
Want me to stay at ease
Fuck you and your corporation
Y’all niggas can’t control me
I know that we the new slaves
I know that we the new slaves
I’m ‘bout to wild the fuck out

I know that pussy ain’t free
You niggas pussy, ain’t me
Y’all throwing contracts at me
You know that niggas can’t read
Throw ‘em some Maybach keys
Fuck it, c’est la vie
I know that we the new slaves
Y’all niggas can’t fuck with me
Y’all niggas can’t fuck with Ye
Y’all niggas can’t fuck with Ye
I’ll move my family out the country
So you can’t see where I stay
So go and grab the reporters
So I can smash their recorders
See they’ll confuse us with some bullshit
Like the New World Order
Meanwhile the DEA
Teamed up with the CCA
They tryna lock niggas up
They tryna make new state
See that’s that privately owned prison
Get your piece today

Braggin’ ‘bout what they made
Fuck you and your Hampton house

Came on her Hampton blouse
And in her Hampton mouth
Y’all ‘bout to turn shit up
I’m ‘bout to tear shit down
I’m ‘bout to air shit out
Now what the fuck they gon’ say now?

And the government justifies this by linking drug sales to money that funnels back to terrorists. They establish this link because they are the one’s helping traffic cocaine from Mexico and South America and they are the one’s providing military protection to the Afghan’s who grow and distribute opiates. And that, folks, is how the two most dubious wars were married to become the largest waste of tax dollars in the history of humanity.
