I wonder into whose pockets this "drug war" money really goes.
17.7 billion, hey? And they can't keep illegal drugs from coming into America? They can't keep illegal immigrants from coming in either...
How in hell do they expect to keep terrorists, nuclear materials, explosives, etc out??? (I read once in the Christian Science Monitor that 42 suitcase nuclear bombs are missing from Russia's inventory.)
They don't expect too.
I think in large part they want them to come here so that there can be attacks and we'll have more excuses to war monger. Grr.
Such a nice thought on a beautiful spring morning in Vancouver!
I'm a fatalist. ;)
NO problem, I think about that shit all the time :)
I've seen that video before, but it's weirder the more time goes on. Whooooaaaaa....
And yeah...I'm in the 12th grade, and those stats seem about right.
*nod* They seemed about right from what I can remember too, but I'm a bit older then you. I think these might be holding pretty form, give or take a percentage or two.
I'm betting if anything the statistics are even worse now, especially considering all the people incarcerated for minor drug offenses. The whole paradigm of "The War on Drugs" is flawed. Time to adopt the Dutch model and be realistic.
And those poodles will give me nightmares. That crap isn't natural.
And right!?! It's the oddest thing I've ever seen... and I've seen some odd things.
How they do things over there I think is what this poster meant.
I could be wrong, but from what I understand the Dutch are just much more relaxed about the whole thing. They have free needle exchange programs and even safe places for hard core addicts to do their drugs. They try to treat the addiction as a disease instead of a crime. And marijuana is totally decriminilized.
62% of twelfth graders and 25% of 8th graders in 1999 report having been drunk at least once.
hah. i do not know anyone that had just gotten drunk once. it was all or nothing, prinicpal kiss my ass. :P
lol. right? I fit inot all of these statistics, every one except for drugs, which I did after graduation. lol

see. pretty much in my school, if we were drinking, there was a blunt/bong going around.
although, weed is NOT a drug to me... i have seen some people get really stupid with it...
but yea. damn statistics. :P)
Yeah, the whole weed thing is stupid, but that's the only real drug I've done, besides pain pills when I'm hurting,or the whipits I did once in college. lol
