Dealing Death and Drugs PDF/EPUB ´ Dealing Death

The War on Drugs doesn’t work This became obvious to El Paso City Representatives Susie Byrd and Beto O’Rourke when they started to ask questions about why El Paso’s sister city Ciudad Juárez has become the deadliest city in the world—8000 plus deaths since January 1 2008 Byrd and O’Rourke soon realized American drug use and United States' failed War on Drugs are at the core of problem In Dealing Death and Drugs — a book written for the general reader — they explore the costs and consequences of marijuana prohibition They argue that marijuana prohibition has created a black market so profitable that drug kingpins are billionaires and drug control doesn’t stand a chance Using Juárez as their focus they describe the business model of drug trafficking and explain why this illicit system has led to the never ending slaughter of human beings Their position the only rational alternative to the War on Drugs is to end to the current prohibition on marijuanaIf Washington won’t do anything different if Mexico City won’t do anything different then it is up to us — the citizens of the border who understand the futility and tragedy of this current policy first hand — to lead the way — from the AfterwordA portion of the proceeds from the sale of Dealing Death and Drugs will be donated to Centro Santa Catalina a faith based community in Ciudad Juárez Mexico founded in 1996 by Dominican Sisters for the spiritual educational and economic empowerment of economically poor women and for the welfare of their families

    It’s really hard for me to pass up an easy 100 page policy pamphlet especially one by an up and coming politician that addresses an issue that will only see debate in the next couple of years — drug cartels and marijuana legalizationThis book is a perfect example to me of how public policy should look Beto a former El Paso City Councilman presents his arguments backed by mountains of statistical evidence and almost entirely free from emotional rhetoric known to fire up voters and burn down any hopes of productive discussionSummary of the facts Prohibition has not decreased demand for marijuana in the last 80 years Cartels control every stage of marijuana production keeping manufacturing costs low and prices high Demand for marijuana is rock solid unlike harder drugs and provides cartels with a dependable and predictable source of revenue Evidence shows that ending the prohibition of marijuana will reduce prices in a safe well regulated legal market and force cartels to lower theirs Lack of demand for illegal marijuana would likely decrease cartel revenue streams and stimulate state and local economies Win for the good guysMarijuana is classified as a Schedule I drug by the federal government — same as heroin and cocaine Schedule I drugs are by legal definition highly addictive and have no medical benefits Research shows that marijuana is in fact not highly addictive much lower rates of dependence than alcohol and nicotine and could have valuable therapeutic applicationsWhether you want to use it or not marijuana is — at the very least — misclassified by the DEA Ignoring that hurts the credibility of the federal government degrades respect for the law and costs the US billions of dollars on futile enforcement efforts and decades long drug warsIf insanity is repeatedly doing the same thing over again and expecting different results then it’s probably time for opinions to change
