The War on Drugs

When Ronald Reagan declared a "War on Drugs", little did he know it would turn
into a full-scale shooting war. Right now, Mexico is in a state of civil war
between the gangs and the government. We have seen this war spill over onto the
streets of border communities in Texas, Arizona and other states. Meanwhile here
in the US, gang violence is killing our young people at an alarming rate. One of
Chicao's leading funeral home directors recently said he's been doing upwards of
125 funerals a year for homicide victims, many of them young adults, some just
teenagers, who are victims of the recent surge in violence rocking this city.

"These kids don't expect to live a full life," said Spencer Leak, a former executive
director of the Cook County Department of Corrections. "You get about a thousand
other kids who come to these funerals. They see how it's celebrated and they
think this is how I'll be celebrated when I get shot."

I do not use drugs except for my thyroid medication. I do not sell drugs. I do
not support or sympathize with those who do. But I also do not support the
killing of our young people or civil war. The "War on Drugs" has cost trillions
of dollars, resulted in the deaths of thousands and destroyed the lives of many,
many more. Meanwhile, the river of drugs flows unabated. Somebody once said that
insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

Isn't it time we stop the insanity?

Best always
Brother Ron
