If the Obama adminstration wants to make so-called drug treatment thnir weapon of choice againt the perils of hard drugs, like cocaine, I suggest that patient one be White House drug czar Gil Kerlikowske, f rom Gary Fields, Wall Street Journal :
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration’s new drug czar says he wants to banish the idea that the U.S. is fighting “a war on drugs,” a move that would underscore a shift favoring treatment over incarceration in trying to reduce illicit drug use.In his first interview since being confirmed to head the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, Gil Kerlikowske said Wednesday the bellicose analogy was a barrier to dealing with the nation’s drug issues.
“Regardless of how you try to explain to people it’s a ‘war on drugs’ or a ‘war on a product,’ people see a war as a war on them,” he said. “We’re not at war with people in this country.”
Kerlikowske is deluded, or just strung out, if he can not see the Obama adminstration war on the American people. The Obama adminstration is plannnig tax increases on everything to pay for ObamaCare, which now to include so-cslled drug treatment. From Grub Street :
– The Senate is considering a federal tax on soda and other sugary drinks to pay for a health-care overhaul. [WSJ]
– The FDA issued a warning to General Mills for the health claims it makes on behalf of Cheerios, which the agency called a “serious violation” of federal law. [WSJ]
Anthropogenic global warming as an imaginary problem which exists only in Al Gore’s fevered brain, but which the Obamatards wish to bankrupt our economy fighting. Whereas illegal street drug use destroy what thousands of live. The Obama adminstration wishs to spend millions ignoring it. So Obama adminstration wants to encourage cocaine use but wage war on Cheeiros. The American people need, albeit may not deserve, an adminstration with is both serious and sober. The Obama adminstration is neither.
