You may be familiar with the so-called “Lord’s Prayer.” There are numerous variations. The opening line of this poll begins with an excerpt from it.

The Lord’s Prayer is a concise prayer from Jesus in response to a request on advice and an example of what to pray. Surrounding the prayer is even more advice which is very good too.

Near the middle of the prayer is a request that God’s Kingdom come to earth so that God’s will happens on Earth instead of, well, you know.

But what has been the fruit of the Drug War? Has the net result been more like Heaven, or more like Hell?

And by the way, in case you don’t know, Drug Prohibition ALWAYS leads to Drug War. You can watch and hear Retired State Police Major and Executive Director of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP), Neill Franklin describe it in his own words.

Too many, too complex, &/or too strict laws (Prohibitionists’ Mindsets Overview) always leads to increased: death, disease, crime, and corruption.

One recent example. First as the news broke:

Recently in our area (not NYC) some people decided to enact more criminalizations regarding tobacco.

Keep this in mind when people try to deceive you by saying “there is a 3rd way besides criminalization and legalization.”

Don’t be mislead. Legalization itself is a range of options, and will end up varying by substance, experience of the user, etc…
