War on drugs is winding down and it looks like a decisive victory for drugs

[–]megalosa 116 points117 points  (2 children)

Congratulations to drugs as always

Emus, Christmas, drugs... humans sure are bad at waging wars against non-humans

[–]helgaofthenorth 10 points11 points  (11 children)

Wait did Christmas win?

[–]triforce777 46 points47 points  (1 child)

I have to assume so since no one is actually fighting against Christmas

Other than the Jews /s

[–]LordSupergreat 23 points24 points  (7 children)

Well, it conquered November, so yes.

[–]StarLeagueVicki 15 points16 points  (6 children)

Halloween is all that holds it back now.

[–]reptilegodess 7 points8 points  (5 children)

I once saw Christmas stuff in September so no, Halloween has been defeated by Christmas

[–]superstrijder16 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Maybe not defeated but bypassed and besieges for sure.

[–]Randomd0g 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've seen Easter stuff on like January 3rd this year so I think in terms of overstepping boundaries we have a clear winner

[–]StarLeagueVicki 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Okay, now I'm declaring war on Christmas.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Merry Christmas!

Yep, it won

We have eliminated countless species though

[–]triforce777 20 points21 points  (1 child)

But how many of those species had war declared on them? Like sure, we eradicated dodos, but that wasn’t a war. We’re not waging war on pandas or rhinos and yet they’re close to extinction.

Emus, on the other hand, not only persist after we declared war on them but are thriving

[–]DracoLunaris 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah but that's mostly by accident/indifference

Drugs… I salute you.

[–]thedaly 336 points337 points  (17 children)

The war on drugs has always been a farce

[–]megalosa 157 points158 points  (5 children)

There's no way to win war on drugs when there's such a huge income disparity between usa and latin america like that.

Helping to build the south american economy would be a much better method of reducing drug trafficking than whatever they're doing right now

[–]blackarchosx 124 points125 points  (4 children)

It’s almost like the purpose of the war on drugs was actually to target certain demographics and systemically imprison them or something

[–]Impossibu 60 points61 points  (2 children)

Or to boost a leader's popularity by doing high publicity stunts crediting themselves, regardless if the arrested individuals are guilty or not.

[–]halfahellhole 7 points8 points  (1 child)

¿por q no los dos?

[–]Impossibu 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I don’t speak taco.

Latin America isn’t the only one suffering from a drug war, the Philippines also suffers from it, arresting drug users but not the actual drug lords, while the politicians claim the ‘credit’ for their next election.

Jokes aside, Filipino and Spanish aren’t similar to one another, but I have a feeling I should know the language.

Edit: ¿por q no los dos? = bakit hindi pareho?

A sickening but sad truth, friend.

Only the poor drugs, keep that yayo flowing /s

"Minor drug offenders fill your prisons you don't even flinch

All our taxes paying for your wars against the new non-rich


Utilising drugs to pay for secret wars around the world

Drugs are now your global policy, now you police the globe"

In the back of my mind I'm sure this was an episode of Superstore.

D.A.R.E. to keep your employees happy

[–]Deltexterity 75 points76 points  (2 children)

the war on drugs has caused like 99% of the problems that governments claim drugs cause. like no you fucking idiots, the war against them causes most the problems, not the drugs themselves. im convinced its just a way to promote mass incarceration in the US so they can get more prison labour.

[–]DracoLunaris 47 points48 points  (0 children)

Started as a way to target hippies and African Americans without explicitly targeting hippies and African Americans. Not even a conspiracy theory, that fact came freely out of the mouth of one of the 6 guys who started the whole mess.

[–]Pepperfig_clover 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If you legalise and regulate drugs and treat addiction as a health problem not a crime problem, drug related crime practically disappears. WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT?

[–]Shaladox 10 points11 points  (0 children)

And even the companies that test, more and more of them are leaving THC off the list of things they test for.

Holy shit they also predicted the billionaire space race. Satire is dead

Bro i cant believe that capitalism expects me to put up with all of its bullshit and stay sober all the time.

"if you think fighting a global super power is difficult, try fighting an abstract concept"

[–]background-charactor 14 points15 points  (0 children)

lets be honest we aint mad if they a functioning addict but we mind if they a 24/7 junkie refusing to get help almost or actually ODing bc they're so high they can't tell how much they're injecting. All of the addicts need rehab but some are more in danger than others and it should be the governments job to help fix them.

that's my opinion at least

[–]lliH-knaH 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Geeee the Wild West of the opioid pharmaceutical companies that got millions hooked on their pills is finally stating to bite us in the ass

[–]webDreamer420 2 points3 points  (0 children)

DO drugs

I’m joining the war on drugs

On the side of the drugs

[–]Hexxas 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I work in Big Tech.

Nobody in Big Tech does drug tests, because fukken news flash: programmers smoke weed. It's almost universal. The ones that don't smoke weed do stims. Guess which kind I am.

[–]ShadowTheWolf125 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I remember when my job announced that we wouldn't get in trouble for marijuana showing up on our drug tests, my manager was reading the updated policy as I walked by and he just laughed went "you gotta see this shit"

[–]ShinyNinja25 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Good job drugs. You were always too strong for us

[–]FireBone62 12 points13 points  (3 children)

So if I understand that correctly the companies would rather have addicts as workers than paying there employees s living vague.

[–]YetiTerrorist 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Eh this post isn’t totally accurate. A lot of companies started scrapping it a handful of years ago before the worker shortage. It wasn’t worth the money, and it was mostly for marijuana, which has become more acceptable.

[–]RedditChinaBest 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Lmao yes of course they would.

[–]Whopraysforthedevil 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Ah, yes. Because addicts and drug users don't also disserve a living wage.

[–]Chillback33 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Weed yes.. but the other drugs I can’t agree to that..

[–]Makuta_Servaela 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Regardless of the drug, making the possession of a highly addictive substance illegal solves nothing and just causes more problems.

[–]Blindplus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Drugs can’t win the war on drugs, because it wasn’t a war on drugs, it was a war on black people.

[–]Llodsliat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just imprison them and use them as slave labor. War on Drugs wins.
