This is another rant on something that has been bothering me.
On the TV and in other types of media you hear about drug busts. The police are trying to stop a poison that is decaying our society. The users of course, do not help. The pushers have their own agenda and don’t care if they are destroying lives and families with what they sell. I found an article by Business 2.0 on some of the things that drug cartels are doing to improve their ‘business’. I found the page on Stumble Upon. I tried to make a link for this article, but it didn’t work right. So, I tried something different. It makes me ill to hear how they have no limits on what they feel like doing to keep pushing their poison.
The authorities are limited in what they are allowed to do. The cartels feel no limits. What I wonder is, what excuse do the USERS have for breaking the law? Since everyone knows that drug use is bad and illegal, what is their excuse? Why aren’t they punished in a more extreme manner for their willful breaking of the law and common decency? The pushers wouldn’t be trying so hard to sell their poison if people weren’t willing to buy and use it? If the demand went away, the suppliers would not find a market for this stuff. Am I being naive? Probably am, but it seems to me that a slap on the hand is not working. Just like driving while drunk is no accident. It is a willful breaking of the law.
