Enemy
Now We're In A Real War...

Not The Enemy
Isn't It Time To Abandon The War On Ourselves?
DRUG PROHIBITION:
  • Creates a criminal class of great wealth with the power to corrupt
  • Provides profit motive for selling drugs to our youth
  • Generates huge illicit profits that fund terrorists and destabilize nations
  • Wastes between $35 and $40 Billion of our taxes each year
  • Arrests nearly 1.6 million people each year, most just ordinary citizens
  • Chips away at our Constitutional rights and liberties
  • Targets African-American and Hispanic communities
  • Denies marijuana to patients suffering with AIDS, glaucoma and cancer
  • Spreads AIDS and Hepatitis C to the general population and to newborns by denying clean needles to injection drug users
EXPERIENCE TEACHES:
Prohibition fails but liquor stores and pharmacies succeed in controlling soft and hard drugs.
