The Wonderful War On Drugs In recent years the so-called war on drugs has taken over the streets and back alleys of suburban America It has caused a problem that mirrors the prohibition days of the 1920s and early 30s Politicians trying to play tough guy are only contributing to more violence Their laws have created an underground drug-trade in which modern drug-dealers have taken the place of the bootleggers of old The real question is whether or not this war is working Most people would like to believe that it is and there are a few statistics that show it has But just watch any news program and you will see this war has failed miserably Drug-related crimes happen constantly in todays society and in recent years have involved increasing numbers of innocent bye standards Daily police officers face ruthless dealers who would rather shoot at a cop than spend 25 years in prison On top of all that there has been no real proof of a decline in drug use among people in America Is this war really the best answer to Americas widespread drug problem Should the government be allowed to spend billions annually fighting this hopeless war Looking at this information you begin to realize that not only does this war affect every person in the US but it is also a war with no winners War is never pretty and the war on drugs is no exception For this war to work it must stop drugs in at least one of three areas Either by stopping drugs at the border stopping drug dealers at home or preventing drug use within the country Military and law enforcement has failed to accomplish any of these and it is not because of limited funds Last year state and federal governments spent 30 billion plus on the battle against drugsAnony71 This outrageous spending hasnt made a dent in the modern drug-trade Politicians
