Should The Government Be Held Accountable For Selling Drugs?

In the 70's, the Government helped flood the streets with crack cocaine. Now they make billions off selling marijuana. Should the Government be held accountable just like we are being held for the same incident?

How did we let the Government become the biggest drug dealers right out of our backyard? Who are the targets? Yep, you already know it's low income communities.

Drug trafficking allegations, however, were not the focus of that inquiry and the Walsh report included no findings on these allegations. The issue of drug trafficking by the Nicaraguan Contras has also been the subject of books.

There are people out there who wants to expose the CIA for their practices. Freeway Ricky Ross, one of America’s biggest drug dealers, unwittingly became a main player in the Central American drug connection, which sent millions of American dollars in drug money to Nicaragua.The CIA’s plan was to promote and finance the Contra revolutionary group, which was trying to depose the Socialist Sandinista government in the Central American country.

How do you feel about the Government and it's drug use. Do you think it's fair they can do the same thing they have criminals locked up for?

The most commonly trafficked drugs in the United States are cocaine, heroin, PCP, LSD, methamphetamines, and marijuana.

The illegal drug trade or drug trafficking is a global black market dedicated to the cultivation, manufacture, distribution and sale of drugs that are subject to drug prohibition laws. Most jurisdictions prohibit trade, except under license, of many types of drugs through the use of drug prohibition laws.

The war on drugs is a campaign, led by the U.S. federal government, of drug prohibition, military aid, and military intervention, with the stated aim being to reduce the illegal drug trade in the United States. The initiative includes a set of drug policies that are intended to discourage the production, distribution, and consumption of psychoactive drugs that the participating governments and the UN have made illegal.

So should the Government accountable for the largest distribution of marijuana the U.S. has ever had? The United States has been engaged in a “war on drugs” for nearly 25 years. A war in which there is a great deal of confusion as to why we are engaged in it, and if we are in the war for the right reasons.
