A Solution to the Opioid and Illegal Drug Crisis U.S.A

Introduction:I decided to begin this Strategy to ‘Slow, Stop and Reverse’ the accelerating rate of Drug Addiction’ in America -‘The Drug Crisis’ after I received a Letter from the White House on behalf of President Trump thanking me for my discussion of  President Trump’s Made in America Campaign which I am using in Partnership with this Strategy. This post is taken from my website www.desmondlast.net

For America to reduce the devastation, destruction and misery caused by illegal drugs and the addiction caused by the oversupply of  prescription drugs then it must adopt a system which ‘controls both supply and demand’ – that is the intended outcome of this Strategy. There can be no half-measures. You cannot reverse the increasing rate of drug addiction of both legal and illegal drugs in America without doing so.

The Cost of the Drug Crisis

The U.S. federal government spent over $15 billion dollars in 2010 on the War on Drugs, at a rate of about $500 per second. State and local governments spent at least another 25 billion dollarsThe Drug Clock.

America’s efforts to end drug addiction have to become iconic; a statement of America’s ability to act as one Nation and a redline to those who profit from the death and misery caused by illegal drug addiction as well as a clear signal to those whose bottom line is profit with no responsibility.

The Strategy. My Strategy is not about developing even more costly programs. It is about allowing People to be Proud when they have been ashamed, useful when they have been unable to participate, productive when they have been a cost and most of all able to enjoy being part of a Nation who like me ‘will never give up’. It is a Strategy of Direction and Self-Help.

It is also of course about making sure that nobody makes illegal profits from America’s Drug Crisis in all its forms.

This is not a  complete Strategy only an outline. To complete it I will need to involve those who will be involved in implementing it and those who will be self-helped by its process. There is little point in a Strategy that does not include the vast wealth of expertise and experience that already exists. There is also no point in spending the many hours required to write a fully-finished strategy unless it is requested – that is why this is c.c. President Trump.

I have combined new Economic Theory, New Systems Applications, President Trump’s ‘Made in America’ Campaign and the Power of the Community to outline how it is possible to reverse the accelerating rate of ‘Drug Addiction in America’.

Scope of the Strategy. By addressing the ‘Drug Crisis many other problems will be effected by reducing its effect; Corruption, Crime, Government inefficiency through duplication, Financial Fraud, Criminal Third-Party infiltration of Local, State and Federal Government, cyber-crime, Unemployment and America’s Loss of Domestic Manufacturing, Money Laundering and Corporate Fraud. It will also help to bring back moral leadership to America -something which is needed everywhere in the World.


These are my slogans for this Strategy which brings together President Trump’s efforts to increase the labour value of Americans and their participation in the American Economy with his declaration that the U.S Drug Crisis has been declared a National Emergency. To that I have added my own new Economic Theory (Evolved Economic Theory) and my new system(s) for addressing the Drug Crisis.

‘Buy American for Americans to Create Jobs not Drugs’

‘America United with Common Purpose will Never be a Nation Defeated’

The Principle of the Strategy. The Strategy is a ‘Purpose of Self-Help’ and a revival of moral leadership. It also addresses Unemployment and Underemployment, which for many are the foundation of despair and the tools of the illegal drug trade. Pride is vanquished and Community cohesion is destroyed by drugs and unemployment. This Strategy addresses unemployment by getting rid of it at the individual level and promoting a ‘Community at Work’ as a business to bring together skills and empowerment. There are other areas which will benefit from the adoption of this strategy not the least being a reduction in crime.

I am also using the symptoms of ‘chronic pain’ which lead to opioid drug addiction and illegal drug abuse to create a new method of providing non-drug solutions. At the same time I will be providing a ‘new market’ for American Industries and a new revenue(s) stream for the Health Care System. The Pilot Schemes will all have their own version(s) of ‘Universal HealthCare’.

It would be too ambitious of me to say that my Strategy could immediately stop drug addiction for all people for all time as the rate of the increase is out of control. By allowing the Strategy to achieve benchmarks that are realistic it will enable its progress to be quantified.

Therefore, it makes sense to first slow then halt the accelerating rate of the increase in the effects of the Drug Crisis, then stop the increase and finally reverse its increase. Each is a separate part of this Strategy and each requires variations of this Strategy. If America is to benefit from President Trump’s Economic and Drug Policies and lives are going to be saved and improved then the Drug Crisis in all its forms has to end as a ‘Crisis’.

A Crisis is critical mass. It does not allow for a clear rational application of resources and certainly cannot be allocated a forecasted budget and manpower resources whilst a state of chaos exists. So the first goal of this Strategy will to reduce the manageable critical mass to one in which each of its component parts is able to be recognised, quantified, allocated available resources, made systematic  and controlled. That is the first element of this Strategy – to bring the Crisis under Control.

Drug Addiction is a medical problem, a physiological symptom, an output of a commercial system and an exploitation by those who seek to profit from addiction. For some it is the result of difficulties in dealing with the complexities of our modern world and for many the need to deal with chronic pain. The System must be able to provide the ‘New Alternatives to Opioids and Illegal Drugs’ that must be available if the rate of drug addiction is to be reversed.

However, this is no nice and cosy Strategy. It is a self-help Program. A partnership between those who are addicted and those who want to help them. You cannot make people want to end their addiction. They have to want to help themselves.


Will this Strategy work? Yes. Why? Because it will involve those who are most affected; the People laid to waste by continual Government failure to deal with crime, corruption and a deadly addiction. It gives those affected purpose, meaning and support but it does not wrap them in nappies (diapers). It also addresses all aspects of Criminal methods of the Illegal Drug Trade and includes a new system of control for the supply of prescription drugs and a ‘common purpose’ for Government Agencies such as the DEA. The Strategy also through Congress and the Senate redefines  the term ‘legal responsibility’.

The changes I intend to propose to the interaction of the systems it encompasses will ensure that the many different systems involved will all work together and in the same direction – which is what this Strategy is all about.

In a way it’s a new Industry. It is also Community driven. That is why it must be developed with the People and not just from Washington.


The Subjects covered by this Strategy may appear wide-ranging. However, if President Trump and America want to reverse the increasing trend of Drug Addiction and make America ‘great again’ then they must be prepared to address all the factors that contribute to what  has become a symbol of America decay. You cannot stop a bucket leaking water unless you plug all the holes.This Strategy does just that.

It may appear ambitious but you cannot address America’s Drug Crisis without including all the components of a system which cause Drug Addiction.

For that is what America has become;

A ‘System for Producing & Maintaining  Drug Addiction’. 


The Pilot Schemes will establish the Procedures for a more comprehensive, documented and quality controlled system which can then be adopted and modified to suit those communities who want zero drugs. Although it may appear that the subject base is too all-encompassing it should be pointed out that initially the subjects listed will only be micro-applied to the Pilot Schemes. Thus for instance where the subject is Economic Reform of Countries that manufacture and supply illegal Drugs only the effect of the reform will be used in the ‘Pilot’. I have written an outline of how this will succeed in practise. Quality Control will become an essential part of the application of the Strategy. The Pilot Schemes are intended to show America and the World that it is possible to reduce the dependence on Opioid Drugs and stop the use of illegal Drugs. President Trump’s current Committees on the Drug Crisis will be attempting to apply a Nationwide solution. I hope to be able to present this Outline to them.


Quality System and Systemic Approach. I have a B.A Degree in Systems Management and have successfully written and implemented a complete Q.C system ISO 9001/2 into an Engineering Company. The Strategy Process of Implementation will comply with ISO 9001 as will any Agency or company (or part of) that has any connection or interface with the Pilots. It is also intended it use ISO 9001 in the Strategy Component concerning  ‘Protecting the Second Amendment and achieving Gun Control with A New Safer System’.

I know how effective a QC System is in maintaining standards of behaviour and preventing fraud and corruption. U.S Quality Conference 2018

The problem is too big to solve with a top down approach. This Strategy begins as a seed and grows into a tree. It is simply not possible to sit round a table and produce a solution. The problem is too big and too diverse. This is a ‘sleeves rolled up’ approach which will allow the many dedicated Professionals involved in the Drug Crisis to watch and participate in the ‘growth’ of the solution. In effect it is a new approach but one that will allow mistakes to be made but people not harmed.

This is not a Strategy for the faint-hearted. It is one of self-help  and confrontation with the true facts of the Drug Crisis – Personal or otherwise. The Strategy has only one solution – An end to addiction of both illegal and Opioid Drugs and a comprehensive control of both the Supply and Demand for all Drugs be it Personal, Industry or Government. The Strategy Pilots must obtain the approval of both the Congress and the Senate in all their entirety. Every objection must be countered and every assistance sought. Drug Addiction is a common enemy and it requires Unilateral Leadership if it is to be beaten. President Trump has displayed his ability to blend Party lines into a common purpose and that is how the Drug Crisis must be countered – with a Common Purpose.

The Communities taking part must know that they have the support of their Governments regardless of Party if they are to succeed. The eyes of America and the World will be upon them as they seek to become the very first Communities to ensure that Drugs in any form do not control their lives. However, this will not be a sideshow. The Media will be barred from being ’embedded’. Many people who are addicted to drugs are one step away from death others are on the same road. You cannot roadshow desperation.

There are no free rides in the Strategy. Any person who is helped by the Strategy will have to use his or value to the Community to return his or her negative value as a Positive. This Strategy is a Business –  The Business of Self-respect and  Community Empowerment. It is not a Big Daddy approach. Nobody is forced to take part. That will be part of its reason for its sucess – it encompases the People’s of America desire to ‘Get the Job Done’.

It has to be this way. As a Nation America must live ‘Zero Drugs’. There can be no ‘Great’ in America until this modern day version of the bubonic plague is eradicated.
