Crack is like any other product. Interfere in the market and insanity ensues.

Typical liberal garbage. Don't blame the people who farmed it, processed it, transported it, smuggled it, sold it, used it, killed over it. Blame the president who wanted a war on drugs because of how destructive they are.

And your source: a guy who did 20 years in jail for being a violent crack dealer. Yeah, listen to a guy who is degrading a rap star for being a literate college boy with a clean record.

The guy is bitching that America "let them" deal crack, but all of the other idiotic liberal activists cry about the war on drugs and how crackheads are treated worse because of being primarily black. They want to legalize drugs and let the drug users out of jail. What do these scumbags want? Do they even know? I do: they just want to blame others for being their being scumbags.

"If they would not have let these guys sell drugs, I might never have become a drug dealer." Another ****-heel blaming someone else for his being a ****-heel. And then he has the nerve to say that he was illterate because "teachers just want a paycheck." Really? So why is it that white, Asians and Latino kids all learn to read? No acceptance of responsibility, which is the real reason that these pathologies perpetuate.

These losers need to take responsibility for their lives, period. I can't wait until this idiot slips up and ends up back in prison where he belongs.

And on top of everything else, the "reporter" claims that this crackhead "ran a multi-million dollar business."

Rick Ross is the one that turned the powder into crack because it yielded more money and was more addictive. Blame him.

Yes once Ronnie perfected his recipe working out a trailer in the Arizona desert, the trade has never been the same.

End the drug war.

Illegally buying weapons for central American death squads and right-wing military dictatorships wasn't cheap. Nancy very couldn't hold a bake sale for that sort of thing.

I am totally in a state of shock to see such garbage. Not one bit of it is factual, it is the opinion of one nut case. Just to make this clear, without going into detail: if there is anything I know about it is Nancy's war on drugs and what did or did not happen in the 80s while he was President. HOLY CRAP, can't we get over all this stuff? Next we are going to hear Pres Eisenhower was responsible for slavery even if it was outlawed 100 years earlier or almost. Or maybe Kennedy was about to introduce a bill making adultery acceptable to the Catholic church. Or maybe it is time to blame the great depression on Woodrow Wilson?

So idiocy finds its voice....Reagan gets blamed for crack as much as Obama gets blamed for Meth.

Reagan continued the so-called "war on drugs" that started under Nixxon, a policy I considered oppressive and counter productive. But responsible for the crack epidemic? Nah.

I actually know the history behind this, both Ross and Danilo Blandon were part of Iran Contra, the money they made distributing went to the Contras in Nicaragua to fight the Sandanistas, as one of two funds, the other was selling weapons to Iran.
