6 incredible things that happened when Portugal decriminalized all drugs

After a coup in 1974 Portugal became unstable and flooded with drugs.

Quote: By 1999, a full 1% of the population was actively addicted to heroin, and the country had the highest rate of drug-related AIDS deaths in the EU.

Shifting drug use from a criminal to a public-health problem was a bid to reverse that trend.

There were the results:

Quote:1. Drug-related HIV infections have plummeted by over 90% since 2001, according to the drug-policy think tank Transform.

2. Drug-related deaths in Portugal are the second-lowest in the European Union. Just three in a million people die of overdoses there, compared with the EU average of 17.3 per million.

3. The number of adults who have done drugs in the past year has decreased steadily since 2001.

4. Compared to rest of the EU, young people in Portugal now use the least amount of "legal high" drugs like synthetic marijuana, which are especially dangerous.

5. The percentage of drug-related offenders in Portuguese prisons fell from 44% in 1999 to 21% in 2012.

6. The number of people in drug-treatment increased 60% from 1998 to 2011 from 23,600 to 38,000.

FUUUUCK THAT shït! Lock their asses up!

Right?

They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?

Bring back the death penalty, like the US.
The US does have a death penalty for that.
Some states incarcerate for 10 years over a seed in the ash tray.
You then have a felony.
You are as good as dead as far as job prospects.
It's a long agonizing death penalty, which affects blacks and Hispanic minorities far more than whites, yet the PC establishment demonstrates convictions of convenience.
The administration could do something, but they are far too busy taking bank, corporate and big pharma money to think about such trivial issues.
Instead they focus on racial division and anything that furthers political agenda.
And they wonder why Trump is a phenomenon and Sanders is fast becoming one.
Really?
Do they really wonder?
If so, I guess they really are that ğkking stupid.

Stupid? No. If they were stupid they would not have been in power as long as they have. If anything they are overconfident. Unfortunately, they have good reason for that confidence. They control the media, the money and everything that goes with it.

All forms of control are illusion.
All forms of power are illusion.
Let the elite enjoy it while they can, it's falling away from them, and won't last.
History as my witness, your house can't last long if the foundations are made out of bull shït.

Death and destruction happen to the common people when the elites feel their power is slipping. Even in the times of "revolution" they profit and then we put more of them in charge. Seeing is believing and that is all that has ever been seen.
