> If the demand for drug fighting just lost 90% of it's target, why do we need so many drug fighters? In terms of a real war, if an army just decimated 90% of it's enemy, it's time to send some troops back home.

Well, those people wouldn't be jobless as there are (serious) drugs to fight: Heroin and cocaine. But, that would be against the imperial interests of the USA, one powerful agency in particular. [1] [2] [3] [4] [5]

Because the U.S. government secretly loves to profit off of both the direct selling/transportation/etc of drugs and the prison industrial complex.

I recommend you read the following for more details and proof:

Whenever the CIA gets brought up I can't help but mention their complacency in the global drug trade.

In the 70s we learned that the CIA was trafficking heroin from Southeast Asia via Air America, an airliner they covertly owned and operated. [1]

We also learned from programs like Project MKUltra that the CIA was forcibly administering LSD on American citizens. [2]

Operation Midnight Climax was a sub-project of MKUltra. The CIA hired prostitutes who were instructed to lure back clients to government safe houses in San Francisco, New York City, and Marin. There they would be injected with a wide range of substances such as LSD and watched behind a one-way glass.

These are not conspiracy theories. They are well-documented facts that everyone seems to forget about. If your interested in this stuff I suggest you read the books The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade [4] and Acid Dreams: The Complete Social History of LSD: The CIA, the Sixties, and Beyond [5].

This may sound farfetched, but it's not. If you're interested in learning more about the CIA and drugs, I recommend the following:

- The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade by Alfred W. McCoy [1]

- Whiteout: The CIA, Drugs and the Press by Alexander Cockburn [2]

- Acid Dreams: The Complete Social History of LSD: The CIA, the Sixties, and Beyond by Martin A. Lee [3]
