    The war against drugs in the U.S. is baloney. The government makes mandatory minimal arrests. Abadia was set free, after paying his $10B ‘fine’, to carry on ‘business as usual’. Reason: The U.S. ‘needs’ him and his kind. They need the drugs be imported ‘illegally’ to the states. Without those drugs the country would be in total disarray: Probably half of DEA, police, judges, lawyers, prosecutors, administrators, prison/jail guards would be laid off. Where would they work? Where could they work? They know nothing! They can’t do anything else! Where would the 5 million + people arrested annually work? All-in-all well over 10 million people would be unemployed. What would happen to all those public and especially privately owned prisons? Taxes would have to be lowered to compensate for lower overhead costs due to fewer law enforcement. And, the biggest reason: Without drugs the general populous would start questioning the government. Now most people use, have used, know someone who uses drugs and, therefore, are in a ‘fog’. Just don’t care! And the minimal arrests advertised on TV keep everyone content. Most people believe the propaganda ‘we are winning the battle against drugs’.
