well melon, i dont know if i'll ever be able to change your mind but you really have to think for the future. If we dont start to wage a war on drugs that can be effective instead of ahving a all or nothing idealism then you'll only see drugs become more and more prevelent in society.

Drugs will never go away and if you can accept that then you might be able to move ahead on the drug front. All of North America soon enough will have drugs in their lives. Most already do now. Go after the heads of the drug trade not the people who do nothing wrong to the extent of serious criminals.

The drug war can be fought, politicians just don't want to do it because of politics and how they have to make groups happy.

First off, the military should be put on the mexican border and should help out the border patrol. The military should also be watched and overseen very closely so corruption doesn't lead into the military. The Navy should be brought down to help the coast guard also and be given the same requirements. The military's main purpose is to protect our borders, they are made for this job. I believe at least 75% of all the drugs that come through the southern border can be stopped by the addition of the military.

Second, all states should follow the example of Alabama with their drug policy of when someone is arrested and if drugs are found in their system they are to be immediately taken out of their previous society and put into drug rehab. Alabama has the best results for putting people into this system and keeping them off drugs when they are released because it is the removal of the person from his environment and putting him into a controlled one. If all states followed Alabama's example, more good will be done.

These are only two examples of what needs to be done right away, there are indeed many more problems like how drugs come from other places in the world, those problems should be dealt with later and these enforced now. You have to start somewhere, I say start here.

The drug "war" will never be won. They should stop fighting. Anyone who thinks that drugs can be stopped should get their head out of the sand. Why don't we fight the "war" on poverty or some other bullshit war instead. The only way to combat drugs and their problems is knowledge, understanding and treatment. Not more misplaced government funds.

Hmmmm...75%. IS that a number that jsut sounded good. Well B.C.(britsh columbia) exports 6 billion dollars worth of weed alone! Also BC weed is up to 10 times more potent then weed from mexico or columbia. And if, BIG IF, they were to ever put a hole in the trade coming from mexico then people would just start to grow it in the states. It is grown in the states you know!

Secondly your statement about Alabama. I would really like to look at the money they spend on drug rehab. I bet you they spend a huge amount per capita over any other state.

Poverty is a battle that is not even being waged! We should get our priorites straight. Homeless turn to hard drugs. So why dont we start at the root of the problem. I would emstimate that a higher percentage of hard drug users are homeless or are below the poverty line.

Weed is the least harmless drug out there, including caffenie, alchol and niccotine.

Lets fight those. Oh we cant. They make us too much money!

Bonoman, do you listen to me ever? I said that those two things would be a starting point and all other problems such as places drugs come from would be dealt with later once the first two were enforced.

You are wrong again, Alabama actually spends very little on the war against drugs. It is just that their program actually works, if you want to accept that or not, which I think you refuse to. Alabama is not one of the biggest money spending states at all, you should look to New York and California for that.
