Should the Military Fight a Global DRUG War?
By Jim Babka

ACTION ITEM

I wrote to my Representative and Senators telling them to end Drug Prohibition I hope you do the same.

The hardwired message says…

End Drug Prohibition.

You may borrow from or copy the following sample comments…

I DO NOT CONSENT to using the military to fight drug trafficking overseas.

Instead of serving national "defense," it’s become an OFFENSIVE force to bolster failed domestic drug laws.

For decades this policy…

* destabilized foreign countries and killed countless thousands of innocent civilians
* bred corruption in foreign governments and helped them oppress their own people
* empowered ruthless, violent drug lords who are able to keep the trade flowing

END this global War on Drugs. STRIP the anti-narcotics provisions from the 2014 National Defense Authorization Act...

* stop the interventions and military "cooperation" with other countries
* end foreign aid directed toward anti-drug efforts

NO government has legitimate authority to dictate what substances people can or can't ingest. To do so is an act of AGGRESSION, whereas REAL GOVERNMENTS protect people FROM aggression.

Behave like a REAL government. End the failed and immoral War on Drugs.

If you don't, you will further lose legitimacy.
