    I'm gona screw with your mind.

    I'm gona screw with your mind.

    And confuse the hell out of you.
    We are going to look at a paradigm
    That is so messed up it hurts the brain.
    I still haven't figured a way to correct it 
    or a way out of it, maybe you can?

    We are going to take a trip to Afghanistan,
    to  a farm where the farmer processes his
    own home grown Opium, into heroin.

    And he is hoping to get $400 a kilo.
    The Taliban talk him down to $350 a kilo.

    Now we travel to NYC Broadway a small
    coffee shop, and that same Afghan kilo
    of heroin exchanges hands for 

    What just happened?
    The Global war on drugs.

    The law of supply and demand.
    Thats a natural law and unlike 
    man made laws its very hard to break.
    Brief review: In general.
    High supply = lower price
    low demand =lower price
    high demand = higher price
    Low supply = high price

    The more successful the war on drugs is,
    the more drugs DEA intercepts, the
    more arrests they make:
    The higher the drug dealers profits are.
    DEA cuts supply, or number of dealers
    drives up prices. DEA cuts supply, and prices

    Supply and demand.
    If you Cut supply then demand runs a $400 kilo
    in Afghan (heavy supply, low demand) to NYC
    its $80,000 for the same kilo (low supply
    high demand).

    The more efficient the Government is with
    the drug war, the more money the drug lords
    make. $350 turns into $80,000 DEA drives up
    prices, Supply/demand.

    A bushel of wheat in Afghan sells for around $5.00
    In NYC it sells for $5.25
    About the same price, why? there is no
    Government war on Wheat.
    If there was, Wheat would be selling for $10,000
    a bushel by the same math.

    The Taliban are so concerned about supply and
    demand they have stock piled a years supply of
    heroin, rather than flood the market increase supply
    which would lower prices and mess up
    the supply and demand economics.

    So the Government War on drugs has benefited
    the drug dealers, by driving the price to unbelievable
    heights. $350 to $80,000 for 2.2 pounds.

    And during the War on Drugs the demand has remained

    The war on drugs is the driving force for drug profits
    in the Mexican drug insurgency.

    Legalize drugs? 
    Prohibition example?
    I'm just not sure what the consequences would be?
    But to be sure the current drug paradigm is a failure,
    and counter productive.

    A 2008 study by Harvard economist Jeffrey A. Miron has estimated that legalizing drugs would inject $76.8 billion a year into the U.S. economy — $44.1 billion from law enforcement savings, and at least $32.7 billion in tax revenue ($6.7 billion from marijuana, $22.5 billion from cocaine and heroin, remainder from other drugs).[68][69] Recent surveys help to confirm the consensus among economists to reform drug policy in the direction of decriminalization and legalization SOURCE:

    The war on drugs have driven drug profits sky high, NO, space high.
    A drug dealer could send in 200 individual kilos of heroin,
    and if just two get through, he just made $80,000 profit.
    Even if 198 packages out of 200 are intercepted by DEA.
    For every pack that does get through its another$80,000 
    profit, at a cost of $350 per packet.

    If the war on drugs ended, the price of a kilo of heroin in NYC would drop from $80,000 to around $1,000. a kilo, wiping out the drug dealers profits, and end the major funding source for terrorists.
    and save the tax payers $40,000,000,000 dollars, the cost
    for the War on Drugs.

    California is making $30,000,000 a year just taxing marijuana.

    We need to watch and review the data from countries that
    have legalized drugs, to see if it works.
    The USA may not be mature enough to make an adjustment,
    they go crazy over seeing a Boob on TV for less than a second.
    Internet Anthropologist Think Tank: Janet Jackson showed a boob

    But the current paradigm isn't working, drug use has remained
    constant, and the War on Drugs has benefited mostly the Drug lords, Dealers and terrorist, with no significant decline in drug usage. The war on drugs is a failure and even counter productive
    helping our enemies.

    $400 to $80,000 a kilo, 2.2 lbs,Cause: 'the war on drugs'.

    We should be able to do better, Ideas in comments please.
