Why are drugs illegal? They have big profit margins and are generally safe enough. Aren't millenials supposed to be all about buying experiences now? Drugs are an attractive experience.

Capitalism isn't even efficient with its own characteristic dynamics at this point. Private prisons are so intertwined with state power by this point that they can and will do anything to preserve this state of affairs. People are only allowed to do the whole liberal "be yourself, maaaan!" hippy things so long as they don't hurt anyone's profits. Porkies gonna pork.

Because it is a convenient way to lock up your political opponents and extort money from them.
If you're rich you can do drugs and get away with it, if you're a prole and found out your life is ruined.

So much for "justice".

The prison system makes sense. Are there historical examples of new, harmful-to-the-old industries getting out from under the old once they are profitable enough? Is marijuana legalization just the beginning?

They're more profitable when they're illegal, most drugs aren't expensive to produce. Market would drive prices down if they were legal.

CIA wants to keep monopoly on importing Afghan heroin

Drugs can be stomped out if our governments went full Singapore. But they don't want to do that as it's more profitable for all parties to keep it in a gray zone instead of legalising it. Foccualt writes about this.

Also a black market allows Deytravius to sell coke and heroin so he can buy his air Jordans instead of tearing the city apart brick by brick via strong arm robberies and rioting. It's all a well greased machine and everbody gets to eat the way it is set up now.

No they fucking can't, check the alcohol prohibition period in the history of the US.
Trafficking is so fucking profitable that the involved parties get to have a high amount of influence within the local law enforcement and even politics.
You can bet your ass off that if a real war on drugs was waged corruption within the US police would skyrocket. Not to say that there are most likely a high amount of politics within the US that lobby for the drug trafickers to keep it in the gray zone you mentioned.

Anything specific? I can't seem to find a book other than "ATWA" from him.

Its cheaper to buy heroin in Singapore than Socdem controlled Sweden. You're literally retarded.

cause its even more profitable to fight the war on drugs

I don't know about other countries, but in the US, the war on drugs was constructed as an excuse to target black nationalists and anti-war activists.

The following is a quote from John Ehrlichman, the Assistant to the President for Domestic Affairs under Nixon:

"We knew we couldn't make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin. And then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders. raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did."

The problem is not inherenly drugs, rather what leads people TO drugs.

Even Fallout got that, when creating Jet.

The more shit conditions are, AKA 30s US, the more people will need something to take the pain away. And the more "forbiden" it is, the more tempting it is.

Thus, if you want less drug abuse, get rid of capitalism and make life better.

It's been a year since I last told you "you've posted this before" hasn't it?

Alcohol prohibition was actually wildly successful if you look at how fucking much alcohol people drank beforehand

I almost bought this as a real post. 5/10.

Because they create a shit culture.

I'm sure if drugs were legal there would be people saying its the government trying to keep people sedated
