The only way for a person of colour in America to avoid being prosecuted for drug possession and/or abuse it to become rich and famous. Or white.
As recently - again - being proven by a member of the Brown family: Whitney Houston, her daughter Bobbi, her daughter's husband Gordon and recently Bobby Brown Jr. died from 'substance abuse'. Meaning they had too much cocaine, probably in combination with alcohol (the single most addictive kind of harddrug in the world. But legal. So that's okay.) and/or other 'substances' (American-English for drugs. Like 'bathroom' in American-English is not a place where you take a bath - as it is in the rest of the world) but where you shit. But in America nobody does that.)
So here's a question: if the 'war on drugs' isn't working (it obviously is not) to stop the producing, selling and using of drugs, why not make illegal drugs legal (as was done with alcohol, seddatives and antidepressants) and charge some taxes?
Another question: what if the police would see Charlie Sheen as a poor young black male in possession of five dollars worth of weed in stead of a rich older white dude 'who can't handle the pressure of being famous': would Charlie Sheen be alive today if he was black and poor?
Okay, one more question: Would people change their opinion if you'd swap the word 'drugs' for 'guns' in 'Guncontrol won't work. People will get their hands on them illegally anway.'?
