    The US "war on drugs" doesn't work and never has worked. It's a catch phrase that has been strongly associated with government bureaucratic growth and CIA criminal activities.

    It's the wrong approach to chase drug producers and sellers around the globe when the market for illegal drugs is so big in the US and other Western countries. The approach can't work. We need much more severe penalties for using drugs, including the death penalty.

    In USA, tens of thousands people spend years in solitary confinement. That is a long and severe torture.

    Common is right, as your approach for the C.I.A. and the growth of illegal activities, of how in to by at within claiming they are all use(full) about liberty...perhaps you're right, they deserve the death penalty. What do you think?

    If ya don't want to be executed or spend the rest of yer life in prison, don't do drugs.

    Simple approach, but I'm a simple guy, and what we are doing sure doesn't work. I often wonder how much of it is responsible for our economic prosperity, however.

    Beer, bourbon, scotch, vodka and corn liquor are okay. Wine is okay too.

    Whether drugs should be illegal is a different thing.
    The war on drugs targeted both the dealers and the users. Giving people criminal records doesn't help stop drug use.

    Not true. You need to study us a lot more.
    Democrats are a clear and present danger to our democracy and our society.
