    Doctors get patients deliberately hooked on presc. meds because of kickbacks from pharm. co's. 1000% markup on them.Whole clinics voted to getting people off Oxtcoton..

    Illegal drugs? We aren't t the Worst. But, cartels encourage their illegality, as it keeps prices up. If all doctors forced to try therapy and natural cures Before drugs and illegal drugs legal, most of the drug crime would Go Away....

    They put the American cop in charge of the war on drugs. There is nothing they do not fail at or disgrace America doing.

    a) The US is not the most addicted country or has the worst problem, but it is high.

    b) The criminal gangs like the Mafia have been into drug trafficking since the 1930's with mostly Heroin back in the early days and later transferred to dealing with Cocain and ICE etc.

    c) The CIA (and the predecessor, the OSS) have been dealing with the Mafia since 1943, and other criminal gangs continuously. The Corsicans in French Indochina have been dealing with Opium and Heroin and the CIA dealt with them and transported the Heroin to troops in Southeast Asia and around the world. Somilarly with the Koumintang Nationalist Chinese, the Shans in Burma (now Myanamar), the Hmong in Burma-Thailand-Laos "Golden Triangle" etc. They have been dealing with drug cartels and right wing governments in South America and currently with drug lords in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The CIA's airline, the "Air America" has free access to American military airfields around the world and have no "customs" inspections.

    d) The DEA did not treat cocaine trafficking early and that allowed the South American cartels, in conjunction with local Mafia and other gangs, to start operating more readily. It was only when the situation became bad that the DEA and other law enforcement were able to start working properly. By this time the cartels where too big and the drug problem in the US had become extreme

    Wouldn’t you be if you were stuck in such a depressing country. Wouldn’t you be doing drugs just to escape from this hellhole.

    We have a president that only looks after himself rather than look after the people. Farmers used to support him now they’re giving him the finger. Automakers are moving to other countries.

    If you need a favor, stay at his vacation resort.

    If you’re related to him and not qualify for a staff position, you got the job. If you’re qualify then expect to be fired. If you don’t agree with him on minor issues, you’re out of a job. When have you seen this many staff/cabinet members resign or fired. Usually they keep their job until the end of the president’s term(s).
