Drugs have been and always will be an inherant urge in every society thats ever existed,its probably hardwired into man,its been used by bushman to shamens,to modern man. So having said that of course if we were all practicing meditation or yoga or whatever helped us achieve that mental and spiritual peace we would all be more productive and incitefull,but the pressures of life have caused all men at all times to seek release or some way to achieve an altered state of conciousness,otherwise why did jungle tribes figure out how to brew beer or use phsycotropics gathered in the jungle. Its a quest that man has always pursued,Im not saying that we as a species need to move on and become a more evoled species but no one ever smoked weed and then went out and commited a crime, operating machinery of any kind under the influence of drugs legal or prescribed is foolish and illegal,but this never ending war on drugs will never be won untill the lives of the world's citizens are spiritually correct. Life is much harder than it needs to be,how about a good education for all,universal health care,safe streets,pure food,less control of our lives by giant (to big to fail) corporations,either we become humanists and treat each other with care and a true regard for our own humanity or we will suffer the consequences of our need for some relief from our perceived suffering via the use of drugs. All of which enables criminal gangs and cartells to run wild and cause death and suffering to all societies,see Mexico,that could happen anywhere and probably will if the causes for mans need for escape or relief are not addressed. Social justice is the cure,unfortunately the non humanists of the world will never allow that its just not profitable,and societies are to hard to control without fear poverty and injustice. Sadly its seems to be our self created hell on earth,until that changes drugs and their inherant damage to society will be with us,and therefore unsolveable.
