The Despicable War On Drugs
By Leo Gura - February 17, 2017
One of the most outrageous unacknowledged crimes committed by the U.S. government:
“The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”
The above is a verbatim confession of Nixon administration and Watergate co-conspirator John Ehrlichman.
That psychedelics are illegal and so demonized by the state is a crime against human rights. What they taught you in school about psychedelics — and what has now become the general population’s default position on psychedelics — was a propagandistic, scientifically invalid load of horseshit. A political smear campaign which will take us more than a century to correct.
Make no mistake, we are still in the Dark Ages. If only people knew to what extent… Of course the very tools that can quickly and easily show the extent are demonized and outlawed. The ego’s devilry knows no bounds. It simultaneously does its dirty work at the private and collective levels, without qualms.
For the same reasons, The War on Terrorism will prove a far greater failure than The War on Drugs.
