C'est la vie

I cannot help but wonder how Sharia Law, sponsored with drug $$, exporting narcoterrorism, would turn around and treat drug abusers of their own people? How about of people they might overthrow?
just me, that is utter and complete bull. Sharia courts punish drug offenders.
The man making the decision is Misri Gul, the deputy to Mangal Bagh - the commander of Laskar e Islam, who is also the head of the Sharia court.
The key decisions are all made by him or passed down through his deputy.
The drug farmers are told to close down their businesses within five days. They all leave strangely happy.
If they do not, they know they will face punishment - flogging, hefty fines... or worse.
Misri Gul said: "Before we set up Sharia court, it was heaven for the criminals. "The government was protecting these criminals and their crimes. We have succeeded and cut crime by about 8%."
Clearly you don't.I know the answer as do most here.
Yes. America is the world's largest consumer of illicit drugs. It would be devastating to the illicit drug market if drugs were legalized here.Would the legalization of drug use in our country, which I am against might I add, even affect a third world country that I asked about in the OP?
Yes. The money to finance them would dry up since the price of the illicit drugs would crash.Would it stop the illegal activities?
Yes.Would it do away with the black market?
I would call it common sense. Anyone with the slightest hint of economic comprehension could figure it out. Where the "high hopes" are, are with the people who believe any good can come from criminalizing these substances when the evidence right in front of our eyes indicates otherwise.I would call legalization of drugs "high hopes" from some.
