Today, the Obama Administration (and by extension, the federal government) seems to have changed its’ stance on fighting the “drug war”. “Drug policy should be rooted in neuroscience, not political science,” said Gil Kerikowske, director of the White House Office on National Drug Control Policy.  In a conference call with news media outlets, Mr. Kerikiowske said that while law enforcement will “still have a role to play in drug enforcement”, the focus from now on will be treatment and prevention of addiction.

According to NewsOne:

Kerikowske said the drug-fighting plan will be guided by the notions that addiction is a disease that can be treated, that people with substance-use disorders can recover, and that criminal justice reforms can stop the revolving door of drug use, crime, incarceration, and rearrest.

“Too many people are cycling through the (criminal justice) system,” Kerikowske said. “We cannot arrest our way out of the drug problem.”

One can only applaud these notions ; Far too many people have been incarcerated for non-violent drug offenses, and the people committing violent crime to obtain their drugs are obviously suffering from a medical condition that is causing them to behave in ways they would not normally. What these people need is a safe, calm place to detox off of the drugs, not a jail cell with violent criminals. As Sheree Geo cleverly pointed out on Truth Frequency Radio last week, “Addiction is a medical problem, not a criminal one.”

However, make sure you’re looking at both hands of the magi. There are two major mind control systems in the world today: the prison system and the psychiatric system. It’s beginning to sound like the federal government is attempting to simply switch one form of total control with another.

For instance, once these plans are in place, when a person is arrested for a drug-related offense, they will probably be taken to a rehabilitation facility, rather than a prison or jail. They will most likely be placed in a program that will track and trace them for the rest of their life, due to their “substance abuse disorder”. It will make sure that they take their medication as prescribed, and if they refuse to comply with treatment, they will be sent to jail for non-compliance. Because of Obamacare, most of these rehab facilities will be run by the state, unless the “prisoner/patient” is wealthy enough to pay for a private facility.

It’s very easy for us to applaud the end of the War On Drugs, but it is foolish of us to fail to ask what its’ replacement will be.
