    This is a message to everyone complaining about the war on drugs. People the drugs are not the problem its the people using the drugs. No drug dealer is forcing anyone to consume anything people are just to immature i have been a proud father,sucessful business owner, and 35yr marijuana smoker not one year of my life have i drawn un-employment or medicaid.

    The so called "war on drugs" is a joke. Its not a war, its a way for the courts to get money from the dealers and throw them out again to get caught again. The courts and lawyers make more money from the drug trade than the dealers do. The poor cops may as well be wearing their own handcuffs when they put their lives on the line with NO backing from the courts. To all you judges out there.. justice for sale IS NOT JUSTICE.

    I live in a nice Greenville neighborhood. For several years a family near me has been selling drugs. The police have been there several times for underage drinking parties. The police have been told what is going on, yet no one is ever charged. War on drugs is a failure. Even when they are told where to look, nothing happens.

    The war on drugs does nothing but keep 10,000 DEA employees employed and feeds the bloated judicial system money. If they really wanted to have a "War on Drugs" they should treat it like a war and get rid of the problems permanantly. Once a few dealers go "missing" other people will get the message real quick.
