: Channel 8 showed a two(or so) hour piece on the global
: drug situation today . It showed the diffrent aproaches taken by diffrent governments
: to the issue . Drugs are no diffrent than other social problems such
: as poverty or racecism . The fact of whitch makes our situation
: in israel look bleak . For a country that has put very little effort into
: the vast poverty(other then tellin' the poor they're fucked) dealing
: with a drug problem seems a little big . Especialy when u consider
: that poverty has been around for all of our 50yr existence
: and the (quickly growing)drug problem is quite recent.
: same goes for racism , which is growing quite rapidly(though
: recieves a little more attention) . The drug problem is no better(actualy much worse) in
: the 'succesful'american (evil) Emopire which we so hard try to
: emolate . And whose voiciest drug war supporter is a big fan of our
: hummble nation . The americans would rather have millions of
: their citizans robing , lying and DYING then admitt they
: have failed in their much heralded drug war. There is little chance that
: a country like ours will start handing out needeles and
: practicing 'harm reduction' . U don't have to look hard to find evidence of that.
: Just ask any highschool student about the issue and u'll find
: total lack of knowledge(of no fault of their own) . U know things are bad
: when the police doesn't know the proper name for "grass"....
: So pesimisticly , i sign off...
: **by the way , channel 8 should be somehow thanked
: for the informing documentry , and it should be shown
: at legalize meetings
: till then,

Great piece , i never thought about it this way. It does seem we have a major
problem especialy considering our people in government(quite ignorent) .
Anyways , i hope legalize can get the chan8 movie shown to the rest of us.
