Phew L.A. County finally put some of the billions of dollars poured into the “War on Drugs” to good use. Now before you anti-fun, I mean anti-drug, nerds begin jumping with joy take a look at L.A. County’s new ammunition against the mind alter drug Ecstasy.
Whoa, I bet you didn’t see that one coming. Finally the government got something right, the solution to the “War on Drugs” isn’t wasting the taxpayers money on trying to get rid of them, but instead using it to educate the public about them.
Now before the site is brought down by all “hey drug are bad mister!” comments let me explain.
Drugs can do terrible things to people and the ones surrounding them if they are abused. However, in this country drugs are as American as apple pie, they’ve been around since the constitution was inked, our country was founded on alcohol and tobacco which are in fact drugs.
For the past 70 years we’ve wasted enough money on trying to get rid of drugs completely, when it’s obviously that approach isn’t working and never will. It sound bad but us American’s love us some narcotics. It’s time to cut our losses and instead try to educate the public on proper usage.
I personally give the Los Angeles County Health Department and standing ovation for their new proactive approach.
