  1. I’ve heard about this scumbag on the radio, he should have been locked up for the low acts he perpetrated. In any case drug addiction shouldn’t be a police matter it is a medical issue and was only made illegal during the 1930s for political reasons.
    It’s nobody’s business what chemicals I ingest. My consciousness is mine no one else’s. Of course there is a hidden agenda for the illegality of drugs and it’s all about protecting the massive profits generated by their sale. The corruption goes all the way to the top, Wall street would suffer crippling losses if the drug trade disappeared overnight. This must stop.
