  • im kinda confused at what you are asking ,i dont want to sound stupid but i went to the site i understand that there is so much money being spent on this war on drugs but i really dont see much coming from it to tell you the truth it seems that the drug users would decrease and the spending would decrease along with it , so i am sad that there is not really much coming from it i have alot of drug addicted relatives in my family several have been arrested and several have had treatment for their addictions so that is what i got from your question hopefully i understood it right =)

    so the numbers of past is actually greater than it is now? if that is the case i guess i would be relieved as well ..but since what i have had to see in my family it still is overwhelming to me

  • Exactly Quinn.. So much money on failed policy and little reform to make anything better. Typical Government.
