First off… the crack epidemic was the direct result of our war in Nicaragua when we funneled cocaine into the states in order to fund the contras. Still no accountability on that one. Second, crack itself has a high LD50 meaning the vast majority of related deaths were related to the gang violence perpetuated around its trade. Third, militarizing police and literally turning neighborhoods into warzones was absolutely counterproductive to ending a drug pandemic. You need education, treatment, and socioeconomic reform. The vast damage of the war on drugs was done by backward policy, state violence, and over-incarceration. But tell me more about how its cocaine and heroin fault you bootlicker. Remember when we blamed the existence of booze for alcoholics… cause its the drugs fault and not the lack of socioeconomic, mental health, or education systems in place. I imagine that when state prohibition rolls back you can be selective about pushing federal enforcement. Should we call the feds about this weed? No, the kid is white. Should we call the feds about this weed? Yes, the kid is black. Helen Loeb Probably by saying it was something along the lines of public endangerment. They willingly put their entire state in danger and didn’t do anything to stop it. And now people have the virus. I am on an Election board (Polling Station Worker), we had our Presidential Preference Election in March, just at the start of The senior just when I thought I’m going to graduate they locked me in quarantine shirt in the US. We took all the precautions possible to ensure the safety of the voters, but I can’t say the same to the public. If you can vote by mail in your state, please do. Given the difficulties of tracing the origins of a viral infection, it seems likely that the 7 documented cases are only the tip of the iceberg! Likely there are more, but we may never know for sure! Nice going Republicans!
