Police have to use deceit to arrest small time pot buyers (less than $25 worth)

John Stossel interviews Detroit’s police chief Jerry Oliver who points out that since the dealing of drugs is between willing buyers and sellers, the War on Drugs forces cops to use deceit to catch those dealing drugs. Despite all the law enforcement resources put into fighting the drug war, availability of drugs is just as high as before the drug war began.


Video showing the police acting like pot dealers on the street baiting customers into buying pot from a fake dealer.  Most of the allegid buyers are looking for less than $25 worth of weed.  Some of these ‘offenders’ get their car seized, or more.

Yet there are no less drug users now, than before the drug war started.    Why are we losing the war on drugs?   Why in the Netherlands, where drugs are essentially legalized and sold in legal cafe’s do they have less users than we have in the USA?

The drug war is a lost cause.
