"The fact? Can you site a source for this fact? Where is your evidence to support this contention?"

Good question. If you are familiar with Sherlock Homes, the evidence is the fact that the dog that did not bark. :) If people were dropping like flies from the use of medicinal plants and extracts, there would have been many reports about it. If these legal drugs destroyed people and civilizations, there would be evidence. If there were gangs and turf wars for hundreds of years over the the right to distribute drugs, someone would have noticed. I can recommend an interesting and factual book on the history of opium, "Flowers in the Blood".

Now, I will ask you to be the judge. What have been the results over the last four decades beginning in 1971 when Nixon declared a "war on drugs" in order to "fight crime" and "protect the children"?

After four decades of escalating that war, millions of arrests, tons of drug war propaganda, millions of anti-drug messages broadcast every day over the mass media, millions more anti-drug messages directed at young kids including encouraging little kids to inform on their parents (The mass murderer, Stalin, called children who did so as "heroes of the revolution"), increasing penalties to longer sentences than murderers such as the ten-to-twenty sentence, the criminalization of more and more people, the adoption of the fascist policy of "zero tolerance", the use of SWAT teams against peaceful people, and the transformation of the "land of the free" into the world's leading prison state, I ask you if there is less crime today? Are the the children safer today than they were in 1971? The critics said that Nixon's domestic war policy would increase crime and endanger people of all ages, especially young people. They predicted that this new Prohibition war on drugs would produce the same results as the previous Prohibition war on the drug alcohol. You tell me, who was proven right and who was proven wrong.

By the way, in 1971, there were practically no SWAT teams. In fact, the person who has been credited with inventing SWAT teams, Daryl Gates, wrote an editorial a number of years ago saying that SWAT teams were being mis-used. They are being used way too much and should not be used to serve routine warrants like they were being used then and much more so today. And, this was coming from a hard-core fascist who publicly called for the execution of "drug users" when he was the Chief of Police in Los Angeles.
