  1. I'm sorry but this is an old and tired conversation. Talking about drugs and racism hasn't gotten us anywhere in the past 50 years, and yet we insist on repeating the insanity…People don't seem to understand that in order for there to be a "war" on anything, there has to be 2 opposing sides that are fighting. There is no real party"fighting" against drugs and there hasn't been for a long time. Drugs already won the battle and it's been over for a long time. I can walk out the front door and get "drugs" in 5 minutes if I wanted and so can just about any American in any city. Drugs are more prevalent today then when I was a teenager. The "war on racism" is basically the same thing. Study after research study get published year after year telling us the same things over and over. Drugs and racism exist, and neither one is going anywhere.

  2. I want to first say I am thankful to God almighty for making me see this day and secondly to Dr. Sandy who restored my health back. I have been a Herpes virus patient for some time now, I have been running here and there looking for help/cure but none could help. I ran into a testimony by someone who testified how she was cured of a terrible disease by Dr. Sandy So I decided to contact the herbal doctor. I explained to him, and he said he can cure me. We started the process and he prepared herbs and sent them to me in my country and gave me directions on how I am to use it. I followed his directions and now To God be the glory he could cure me with his herbal mixture. I say once again thanks to Dr. Sandy for curing me of my Herpes with his herbs. And in case you want to be cured of your disease too you can contact email:

  3. Honestly, if you're going to have titles before you start, WHY ARE YOU REPEATING THE CONTENT OF THEM????

    You're all forgetting one crucial fact: the Drug War is a gigantic profit center for police agencies. The seizures of drugs, money, & cars, frequently with no charges ever being laid (& all too often with no basis for the seizure in the first place) lead to the agency making the seizure getting paid for it out of the sale (or getting a percentage of the cash) from the federal government.

    If this isn't a good enough reason to put an end to the Drug War, I'm not sure anything else will persuade you.

  4. I can’t help but be reminded of our collective covid response. Take a government action, without much if any forethought, that will clearly hurt those among us who can least afford it, implement that decision by force and then argue for even more government action after the ensuing train wreck.
