Forbes: Ten Years After Decriminalization, Drug Abuse Down by Half in Portugal | Drug warriors often contend that drug use would skyrocket if we were to legalize or decriminalize drugs in the United States. Fortunately, we have a real-world example of the actual effects of ending the violent, expensive War on Drugs and replacing it with a system of treatment for problem users and addicts.

Ten years ago, Portugal decriminalized all drugs. One decade after this unprecedented experiment, drug abuse is down by half.

Sibel Edmonds’ Boiling Frogs Post – Afghan Heroin Myths and Facts Recapped & Simplified for Mainstream Followers http://www.boilingfrogspost.com/2012/05/23/afghan-heroin-myths-and-facts-recapped-simplified-for-mainstream-followers/#sthash.FSFUugJi.dpuf

One– Let’s agree on what kind and size of trade we are talking about here. The very conservative and cautious estimate of the Global market value of Afghan heroin in 2009 given by mainstream sources puts it at somewhere between $60 Billion and $65 Billion.  I am going to cite two sources to make these mainstream-following critics of mine more comfortable:

CNN on 2009 Afghan Heroin Value: $65 Billion a year

United Nations (UNODC) on 2009 Afghan Heroin Value: $60 Billion a year

Let’s make it really mainstream and very American, and go with the $65 Billion figure. For my mainstream critics I am going to make it even easier to follow and understand-here it is with all the ‘zeroes’:

$65,000,000,000

Two– Let’s compare mainstream facts with real facts when it comes to the production of this $65,000,000,000 a year business:

The establishment and the Mainstream Media say $65 Billion worth of heroin producing poppies are grown illegally and under-cover by bearded Afghan men in little hidden pockets around the country like this:

Facts say, considering its high value, massive amount and high-powered beneficiaries, it is encouraged, supported, guarded and produced openly like this:

heroin3

They say massive tons of poppies are secretly processed into $65 Billion worth of heroin this way:

The facts say it is more likely like this:

They claim $65 Billion worth of finished-product heroin travels from porous Afghanistan into Central Asia, Turkey, and then into the Balkans and Western European countries like this:

The realities on the ground say it is more like this:

They say $65 Billion worth of heroin passes through various primitive hubs and stops in Central Asia:

Logic and facts point to bases and hubs like this:

They claim $65 Billion is kept & hidden this way:

Reports and facts say it is this way:

Now, dear mainstream’s loyal followers, can you imagine yourself as owners and or managers of this $65,000,000,000 a year business? Do you see this massive global business operation run with a few acres, a few cast-iron pots, a dozen or so donkeys, nomad huts as hubs, and tons of cash stashed under your mattresses? I didn’t think so. But your mainstream information providers are telling you exactly that: That the $65 Billion a year global Afghan heroin business is generated, operated and managed secretly by illiterate bearded men using primitive pots and pans, donkeys, nomad tents, and mattresses used as vaults. http://www.boilingfrogspost.com/2012/05/23/afghan-heroin-myths-and-facts-recapped-simplified-for-mainstream-followers/#sthash.FSFUugJi.dpuf
