“The War on Drugs” “The War on Drugs” The True Freedom Series Legalization as it was before the 1920’s. By D. Bourne
This is the first in a large series of articles/blogs on the current “War on Drugs” and how all drugs should be legalized. It will examine many of the various aspects as to why drugs should be completely legal as they were prior to 1914 without government oversight and regulation. It will also cover why even though statistics show and have shown for years that it makes much more sense for drugs to be legal as it increases safety, decreases use, lowers taxes among other positive things they still remain illegal. Please Note: Due to current knowledge along with research already obtained and or not yet obtained, not all of these articles are in a specific or chronological order. But each article is written to stand alone and as part of the series.
Part 1 Self Ownership and Your Right to Consume Drugs
The idea of self-ownership goes beyond governments, borders, law enforcement and countries. Just because you are born in a geographical area in which an entity referred to by most as a “government” claims to have authority over persons born within those imaginary lines drawn by that “government” doesn’t mean they have any legitimate claim on you or your body. Governments would disagree with you because they believe that being born on land that they claim authority over, they believe you are not only expected to obey what they want you to obey, but that they own you and your body.
The reality is regardless of where you were born and what the government that claims to have “authority” over the territory you were born in says, they have none. It is all bulls**t. Bulls**t created by government in order to aid in getting people to obey and believe in the concept of government authority and government ownership. Everyone is born with the right of ownership over their own bodies. Whether it’s a god given right, human right or how you classify it, it is a right of every human. Government authority is based on one concept, violence. It is based on the fact that if you fail to obey their laws they will use violence either as punishment or to get you to obey. This is eventually the case with every law. Although violence may not be the initial reaction if you continue to fail to obey it will eventually be the outcome.
The way that this applies to drugs is that the concept of self-ownership gives you the right to consume or put in your body whatever you want to. This includes any drug whether it is for medical or recreational purposes. It can be argued whether or not the 9th amendment of the constitution protects your right to consume any substance you choose. However this is irrelevant, as this right does not come from a made up entity calling itself a “government”. This is a right you are born with. So any law that violates your right to self-ownership, in this case specifically to consume whatever you chose is an invalid law. That includes any regulation that tries to interfere with the intention of making it harder or stopping certain people from obtaining the product you are trying to consume.
