The War on Drugs is necessary for the well being of our country. Improper use of drugs is harmful to the health of our society. Illegal drug use cause additional health and addiction problems. A high drug tolerance can harm a person when they really need legal drugs at a later date. The drug trafficking needs to be stopped.
There are many ways to fight a war, and the United States is
fighting this one the wrong way. When we blame other countries for the
drug marketplace created by our own addicts, we are fighting on the wrong front.
When we convict young people of minor drug crimes and throw them in jail for
long sentences, we are mistaking casualties for enemy combatants. Rehab must be
available to the poor as well as the rich and famous. We will never win the
drug war until we counter the social conditions that foster drug use right here
