My answer to What does Hillary Clinton plan to do about the heroin epidemic that has saturated the US since the war…
Answer by Desmond Last:
Clinton's policy will change nothing. There is only one way to give up drugs and that is not to have any. ‘Cold Turkey works and you will not die from it.
Hillary Clinton will do the same as everybody else – spend more money. Clinton will make more money available to users and more money available to enforcement.
Drugs are a choice. Even as an addict with all your nerves screaming out for your next fix, it is a choice. Why should those who do not take drugs have to pay for those who do?
Drug users should not be treated with cotton wool. Help them by removing the drugs and by relocating them and finding them work.
I was on drugs for a short time, aided by a criminal group who were trying to make me into an addict. I was not a hardcore addict but I understand addiction. I walked away. I threw the drugs into the sink and never touched them again.
I watched a video about drug users in Kabul, Afghanistan. It was a sad sight to watch the heroin users in Kabul Afghanistan under a bridge taking their fix and in the zone.
My solution would be to clean the place up, cold turkey them, and find some of the $100 billion that has gone to Afghanistan on non-military aid to help create an economy and jobs for them.
We need to give Afghanistan back its pride so that the Kabul heroin users are not the victims of CIA funding of Warlords.
The CIA needs to stop giving money to Warlords in Afghanistan to buy loyalty, who then use the money to fund heroin farming.
Drug dealers have to be made to transfer to a productive economy not a destructive one.
America is fed drugs by an international system of finance which is not controlled.
To stop drug use need to do two things. Control the money and the supply.
We need to make sure we can access the International Banking systems to track money movements. We need to take cash out of the systems and use digital transfers.
Controlling the supply means ensuring we have a productive economy in Afghanistan. That means Peace and it means talking to the Taliban.
If Hillary Clinton wants to deal with the Heron supply to the USA it will not be stopped without the cooperation of the Taliban.
