Does the War on Drugs exist mostly to ensure the CIA makes big profits from drug smuggling?

    Actually it exists today to keep profit margins for pharmaceutical manufacturers and private prisons high.

  • No

    If you've chosen to have a fictional view of history and the world, could you at least make it more entertaining?

    Impressive revenue if legal.

    In addition to putting dent in failed 'War on Drugs,' legalization could put hundreds of thousands of people to work and generate billions in revenue"

    Keeping it illegal jacks up the ill gotten gains. This highly lucrative returns, allow the CIA to finance operations to be carried out clandestinely, without the scrutiny and oversight.

    Ever seen the serial "Snowfall" or the movie based on the journalist Gary Webb

    Yeah, that's what I've been saying. This is the basic history of it. Rome was the first to cultivate opium for sale, about eleven thousand years ago, there were various different groups like the Persian empire who took over the majority of it, but it's been growing in Afghanistan so long almost nothing else will grow in the soil. The British had control of it for at least a hundred years until Japan occupied the Golden triangle, then they got two nukes dropped on them, and then it was a war between China and the USA/UK as to who would take over the trade. They were there almost a decade in Vietnam, more in Korea as well, stole billions of dollars worth of heroin, flew it back to the USA on passenger planes, the group was called the Landky syndicate, Jewish mafia and the CIA. Then they realized they were losing the war, and couldn't occupy the Golden triangle, so they made the Golden crescent the largest heroin producer, by giving them weapons and support, Al Qaeda, and bombing the hell out of South East Asia. They have been making deals with cartels and puppet dictators and terrorist groups and mafia groups for seventy years. Publicly, the US government may have a no tolerance policy, which was generally so they could lock up blacks and hippies, because they didn't like them, they were bastards, but in reality, the trillions of dollars that were to be made by selling drugs worldwide was too much for them to ignore, and they didn't. Besides which, what other country are you going to say has trillions of dollars?
