Think on this. On both sides of illicit drugs is massive buying power.
1) On one side, Americans pay large sums of money to vast networks of people who grow, process, ship, smuggle, defend, and deliver drugs to the US.
2) On the other side, Americans also pay another network of people vast amounts to find, fight, arrest, and kill those whom we hire to provide the drugs to begin with.
“US dollars finance both sides of this bloody international battle.”
The four-decade ‘war’ on drugs has failed. Next?
