War on Drugs vs Drug Use Education Applied to Meth 

 Methamphetamine Act of 2005

The prevalence of methamphetamine use was only recently linked to cases of ADHD.  However, from 2000 to 2005, methamphetamine became regarded as the most sinister drug of our time, and there are many who still believe this is true.  The 
Are methamphetamine production and abuse a nationwide problem?

creating harm & destruction understanding the problem

 

Methamphetamine or "meth" has become a tremendous challenge for the entire nation. At least one clandestine methamphetamine laboratory has been found in every state over the past five years.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A  July 18, 2006, National Association of Counties Survey found that meth is the leading drug-related local law enforcement problem in the country.

The survey of 500 county law enforcement officials in 44 states found that meth continues to be the number one drug problem 48% of the counties report that meth is the primary drug problem more than cocaine (22%), marijuana (22%) and heroin (3%) combined.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In addition, according to the survey, crimes related to meth continue to grow 55% of law enforcement officials report an increase in robberies or burglaries in the last year and 48% report an increase in domestic violence.

 

It has become tremendously challenging  to find physicians who are willing to prescribe controlled substances for treating people especially those from minority groups with chronic disorders. Everything our physicians do is weighed against protecting their jobs and not their patients!  If there is no value in it for them and yet they believe the patient really does need help, physicians  will dispatch health educators who direct patients to healthcare alternatives, including illicit drug dealers, and with only one clandestine meth lab in many states these patients and self-medicators are forced to use drugs that are not FDA-approved and are inconsistent in quality.  It's about time that the US government set the stage for success and not failure.

 

LEAP (Law Enforcement Against Prohibition) http://www.leap.cc/cms/index.php

has this to say:

COPS SAY LEGALIZE DRUGS!
ASK US WHY

After nearly four decades of fueling the U.S. policy of a war on drugs with over a trillion tax dollars and 37 million arrests for nonviolent drug offenses, our confined population has quadrupled making building prisons the fastest growing industry in the United States. More than 2.2 million of our citizens are currently incarcerated and every year we arrest an additional 1.9 million more guaranteeing those prisons will be bursting at their seams. Every year we choose to continue this war will cost U.S. taxpayers another 69 billion dollars. Despite all the lives we have destroyed and all the money so ill spent, today illicit drugs are cheaper, more potent, and far easier to get than they were 35 years ago at the beginning of the war on drugs. Meanwhile, people continue dying in our streets while drug barons and terrorists continue to grow richer than ever before. We would suggest that this scenario must be the very definition of a failed public policy. This madness must cease!

Law enforcement officials have stated that methamphetamine or other drugs are not related to increases in robberies or burglaries or even domestic violence.  If the general public was using drugs they would be too preoccupied  to engage in crime, it's just common sense.  The formula for crime is a lack of drugs, a lack of jobs,  law enforcement that's overburdened by the war on drugs, and a lack of political leadership.  Criminal activity trickles down from the top.

 Law enforcement officials have warned us that by turning drugs into a crime, protection against other crimes is decreased as law enforcement becomes overburdened. 

The US already has the largest prison population in the world because of zero tolerance.  In fact, the US is known throughout the world  as "Incarceration Nation", with over 2.2 million convicted offenders who leave behind broken families.  It takes a corrupt government of evil cowards to turn drugs into a crime, to keep the disabled unemployed without medication, to establish a national police force, as our leaders focus on waging wars against sovereign nations.

For 36 years, the US government has indoctrinated the American public, leading the world to believe that drugs will destroy society, while our justice and healthcare systems mold decent citizens into criminals  by tainting medical records, siphoning money from those who don't have it, setting the stage for failure over and over, offering no protection for the citizens it targets to become criminal puppets .  Our legal system fails to protect the rights of US citizens, causing them harm.  It's no wonder that the US government rejects Harm Reduction:  They are fearful of losing their jobs...  It's time that we stopped lying to ourselves and to our children.  The war on drugs is self-destruction. 

 

BOTTOM LINE: If the United States can't even take the time to understand the REAL problems in it's own government, how do we expect to fix the complex problems in other nations?

Isn't that like a grade school student failing in fundamental math trying to teach advanced calculus to a college student?

 

THE WAR ON DRUGS IS WRONG!

 DEAD WRONG!

STOP THIS WAR! 

BEFORE IT STOPS ALL OF US!
