25. RE : The DEA agents that I know are brave, courageous, honest,
I used to believe that everyone in politics or public service are honest until 1972 when I learned Nixon was covering up his crimes.
If corruption can reach the top of government, which is more rampant today (look at those who have fallen from grace in both
party's in recent years). There are always going to be good apples, but for the most part, everyone is trying to make an easy buck.

As for legalizing drugs improving peoples lives ? Answer me this; how does alcohol improve peoples lives ?
Drugs are illegal but anyone of age can drive to a store, buy liquor, get in their car, start drinking and kill a family ? Doesn't make sense.
When they tried prohibition crime rose, people were killed, innocents too. Then they figured it out and made it legal plus gained tax
revenue's from it.
If drugs were legal, they would have dispensaries like medical marijuana places that hardcore druggies would have to get counseling
before they get their drugs, they can unknowingly have the content lowered so they don't feel the withdrawals perhaps. At least they
aren't out stealing all the time and more importantly puts the drug cartels out of business.
These are some of the reasons alcohol were legalized. Now it's time to do it for drugs or the druggies will stay in the shadows never
getting help and crime continues, plus after $1 Trillion dollars spent on The War on Drugs, what has it gotten us ? We're worse off.
It's time we grow up and stop ignoring the 800 pound gorilla, or make alcohol illegal and see what happens.
