Hillary Clinton opposes legalizing drugs but why?

Each day I realize more that I live in a world dominated by power and not by truth. I just heard Hillary Clinton opposes legalizing drugs “because there is too much money in it”. And I read that “Hillary Clinton applauds Mexican government’s war on drugs”.

Can someone please tell me if there is another planet nearby where I can escape to?

Too much money in it? The price of legalized drugs would be higher than the price of those same drugs kept illegal? That is prima facie stupid. I guess if the US pharmaceutical industry takes over, that actually is possible. But cocaine and marijuana are very natural substances and are inexpensive to produce. Legalizing them and permitting legal production and distribution would lower the price, not raise it. And legalized drugs would become a large source of tax revenue of money now going to drug lords. And it would put the illegal drug lords out of business.

No, something else is going on here. As with the insane, and at this point stupid, war in Afghanistan, there must be some other explanation for why the world is kept the way it is. That goes for US policy in Egypt as well. And it has to do with preserving power, holding on to it. It does not have to do with democracy or truth or helping people or doing what is right.

There are rational arguments against legalizing drugs (all of which are incorrect). Some parents here in the drug-consuming Empire think that making drugs illegal will keep drugs away from their children. Those parents should talk to their children because their children will use drugs or not use drugs for reasons having nothing to do with the legality of the drugs. And some people think that legalizing drugs will increase the use of drugs. I have noticed that this latter viewpoint is particularly prevalent among ex drug-addicts who used the hell out of drugs in spite of them being illegal and now, after becoming born again drug-free Christians take it upon themselves to tell others how to behave.

And if drug use does increase, what is worse, a few more drug users or the rampant murder being conducted in Mexico due to the puritans and policy pundits in the US maintaining the status quo? For every murder that no longer occurs, I don’t care if that means ten more drug users who use drugs. Why don’t we instead work on figuring out how to make society a place in which people want to be healthy and happy and not resort to drugs. In the meantime, legalize them all, say I.

My poor Juarez Mexico. My heart feels for you. You will have no help from the drug consuming Empire today or tomorrow or ever. They sit in their high chairs pontificating and expounding their power while your children are murdered by drug lords. While your children are murdered by drug lords.

    What I took this is as is that either she meant that they put too much money in it to give up but let’s think about for a moment they keep spending the tax payer’s money like you and me funds this so your helping them paying them to fight a culture of americans sending them to jail over a plant which was been proven that it is the healthiest drug ask your doctor. Now this stupid economics on what hilary said. If they where to stop the phrohibition on marijuana and hemp that money taxed could generate a million at least a year which could be used for education for a better future for our kids and the health care will get money. Marijuana will create jobs as well as hemp also ending our need for oil but the government want to control everything which makes our military for foreign oil creating “creating security” as an excuse to monitor us. Hemp will end the greenhouse effect, saving the planet we live on. Just legalize oh wait what those people we put in jail because of marijuana shit man what are we going to do? Ignorance and racisim at its finest.

    The other way I took it what Hilary meant we are able to make money out of the drug war for own benefit which scares me stealing the tax payers then arresting me them. That worries me the most yet why do we let them do this. This is such a backwards country that I wish I could leave.
    But anyway I am going to continue to smoke.
