“Like the Trump administration, the communist regime in China has announced its intention to crack down in the war on drugs. The fact that the crackdown is coming from one of the most brutal totalitarian regimes in the world should serve as a lesson to the American people about the real nature and purpose of drug laws. According to an article posted at talkingdrugs.org, Guo Shengkun, China’s minister of public safety and head of the National Narcotics Control Commission, said that the communist regime is intensifying its drug-war crackdown to reduce drug use by targeting both consumers and suppliers. Sound familiar? That, of course, is precisely what the U.S. government has been doing for decades, without any success in reducing drug usage.” (04/05/17)
