War on Drugs: Fact or Fiction


The War on Drugs is a misnomer. It’s not a war ON drugs, but a war FOR drugs, including turf, funds, guns, barons, and banksters. Also, it's not a WAR, but a WEB of corruption, disruption, collusion, and intrusion. Like most wars, the "War on Drugs" is fake and on the take, with stashes of cash and caches of hash, and we need to be protected FROM it, not BY it. To quote the Roman satirist Juvenal, “Who will protect us from our protectors?”
