A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle
Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):
“Just say no” that’s the famous phrase Nancy Reagan coined in the 1980s to try and help stop kids and teens from taking drugs. The “War on Drugs” while famously known to be tied to the Reagans, actually started under Nixon.
A lot of people have criticize the war on drugs and have said that it’s failed because half of America has probably smoked dope and are in support of legalizing drug use, but just because a large majority of people support something doesn’t make it moral or true.
Illegal drugs are a death sentence, it’s suicide. There is nothing good that comes from illegal drug use. Drugs are a dream killer.
You can see it on shows such as Dr. Phil, in your local newspaper, all the lives that have been destroyed because of drug addiction. I believe that while Trump is making progress on getting a lot of the drug gangs out of the country, I believe he needs to do more.
I believe it’s time Trump re-started the war on drugs, and when I say the war on drugs, I mean that we need to start a PR campaign that exposes the dangers of drug use.
For too long Hollywood and pop culture have glamorized and joked about drug use as if it’s not a big deal or dangerous when it is.
Drugs have destroyed too many lives of kids and adults alike. I would like to see the government, as well as local organizations do more to help those that are addicted and are sitting in jail because of drug activity.
It would be great to see many walk out of prison, clean and become productive members of society, it would go a long way in Making America Great Again. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
