Recently I saw a debate and heard it said again, how drug prohibition laws are "tools" for lawyers and law enforcers.
What they keep on hoping you will overlook is that these torture tools of the devil only perpetuate the Evil Religion of Hate (Drug War). These "tools" are used to foment discord and violence, not peace. They are used to create distrust, not trust. They create hate, not love. They often are used by the malevolent in order to reduce their onerous sentences by incriminating the innocent.
Only sick-minded blackmail artists love to always have guilt hanging over others which can be used to twist arms and threaten others. This is the work of evil, fruit of the Drug War Tree. God seeks to set people free, not imprison people.
What are the biggest "tools" of torture, murder, death, disease, addiction, corruption, etc… The U.N. "treaties." They are Weapons of Mass Destruction! Take a look at Mexico. Take a look at Colombia, Peru, Bolivia, etc… Take a look at Afghanistan, and even countries in Africa.
These "tools" are really weapons, instruments of torture! And how many trees were killed in order to print them? Perhaps this is what was prophesied in Ezekiel 39:9-10? Certainly many of the laws we have today are shields for the corrupt, bows and arrows for the hunters, clubs and spears for the violent.
