I hope this wakes up some people on how pervasive meth is in our society today.
All we hear about are the Feds increasingly senseless attacks on marijuana. In a DEA report earlier this year there was a breakdown of how much money was allocated to fight drugs.Almost two-thirds of the monies went to fight marijuana while the remaining third went to cocaine, heroin, meth, prescription drugs, etc., al.
That imbalance is not only wrong, it’s criminally wrong in my book. Big Pharma and other corporations that have lobbied against pot for decades, purely for financial reasons, are the real criminals!
Making pot a priority and pouring millions of dollars into it’s pursuit isn’t logical, especially when you look at the damage done by meth, cocaine, and heroin. Any right-thinking person can see this. Take the politics out of the issue for a moment, and look at the statistics. Consider what’s really happening. People aren’t overdosing on weed. They don’t become addicted zombies ready to kill for their next shot of THC.
I hope this unusual news story shakes some people up and makes them realize the enemy isn’t pot – it’s the rest of the drugs the Feds fail to prioritize in their so-called “War on Drugs.”
“A dormitory for freshmen at prestigious Georgetown University was evacuated after a suspected meth lab was found in a room.
Washington fire and emergency services spokesman Pete Piringer said the department's hazardous materials team responded to Harbin Hall around 6:15 a.m. Saturday.
The dorm was evacuated, but seven people were exposed to noxious chemicals, including three students. No one was transported to the hospital.
The investigation is ongoing. Police are questioning possible suspects and believe some students were involved.
Georgetown spokesman Jordan Gray says about 400 students remained evacuated late Saturday morning while federal agents investigated. Students were sent to various campus buildings.”
