A 1995 documentary by Richard Farrell follows 3 crack smokers around Lowell, Massachusetts, chronicling their cocaine fueled misadventures.
Don't let them fool you. Prohibition is the problem, not drugs. These people are acting insanely over a couple dollars worth of drugs per day. Because they are 'illegal' people have to pay for a year's supply every day. All the problems we associate with "illegal drugs" are caused by the fact that black market prices are 400 times more expensive than legalized and regulated drugs would be.
That means people don't turn into criminals and prostitutes and further the draconian machinations of filthy rich megalomaniacal money laundering Wall St. bankers. Instead, if they even do become addicts, they can pay for their habits the same way cigarette smokers do. If cigarettes are ever outlawed we can expect tobacco smokers to behave exactly the same way the crackheads in this video do.
What most people do not realize is that if people graduate from pot to hard drugs it has more to do with getting the most bang out of your nearly worthless black market drug dollar, than any mythical gateway effect of marijuana. Weed is expensive and speed is cheap, in the insane upside-down wacky world of the War on Drugs. The War on Drugs is really a "War on People," on steroids!
Prohibition only serves the superwealthy who turn out to be the same people pocketing most of the dope money. Are you evil, stupid, or doing all you can to legalize and regulate drugs. As I wrote in 1998, our national debt would have been a similar national surplus had it not been for the War on Drugs. It has cost us on the order of $100 trillion so far. If you don't believe that then you are uninformed. Ultimately, hubris and ignorance are what bring civilizations down.
