YOU Can Stop The War On Drugs
Well, not all in one fell swoop. But you can take that crucial first step.
There’s a chance that the position of Drug Czar could be phased out in five years. But you have to make it happen.
This past March, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) introduced an amendment to the Office of National Drug Control Policy Reauthorization Act. Under this amendment, the Drug Czar position would expire in five years. The amendment was defeated, but support was bipartisan. Out of the 85 votes for the amendment, 47 were from Republicans.
This amendment can still be added — if you act.
Citizens Against Government Waste has called the War on Drugs “a federal wasteland that throws taxpayer money toward numerous high-priced drug control programs that have failed to show results.”
Actually, there have been some results. Millions of non-violent American citizens have been jailed for “crimes” that affected nobody but themselves. We’ve drained trillions of dollars from our treasury. And a lot of our foreign meddling all over Asia and Latin America is the result of our War on Some Drugs.
Please click here to tell your Congressman and Senators how you feel about the War on Drugs. Ask them to include a sunset provision in the Office of National Drug Control Policy Reauthorization Act, so that it will expire in five years.
We’ve spent trillions of dollars and ruined millions of lives. Had enough?
