A decade ago, President Barack Obama promised to end the war on drugs, but he never achieved that goal.
Since then, the US has spent $1.3 trillion on the war, with millions of arrests, incarcerations, and prosecutions of thousands of people.
But the US incarceration rate has never surpassed its peak.
In fact, it’s even higher than in the 1980s, when drug laws were heavily relaxed and a major war was declared on drugs.
And the war has left millions in the US and abroad homeless, and has left an estimated 500,000 Americans dead.
The War on Drugs The US government has long been a major supporter of the drug war.
According to a 2011 report from the Institute for Policy Studies, the drug trade accounts for $40 billion in global sales annually.
US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents patrol US highways in 2010.
The agency has long used paramilitary tactics to raid the country’s cities and suburbs, confiscating millions of drugs.
In the 1980 and 1990s, the DEA used paramilitary-style raids to crack down on heroin production and distribution in the Midwest and in California.
Drug enforcement officials like to describe the war as a war on “the drug lord.”
Drug dealers are often referred to as “the kingpins” of the US drug trade.
This has created a system in which police and federal prosecutors have the power to arrest, prosecute, and jail anyone they deem a “drug kingpin.”
The DEA claims that it has seized a staggering $50 billion in cash, property, and other assets from people suspected of being drug kingpins.
But a closer look at the numbers reveals that the US government actually has seized billions in property from drug dealers over the last 20 years.
As the war against drugs continues to escalate, we’ll be looking at some of the evidence that backs up these claims.
The US Drug War as We Know It: Drug Trafficking and the War on Terror The US has a long history of fighting and winning wars against drug trafficking.
In 1962, the Nixon administration declared a war against “the opium poppy,” which was responsible for the majority of the opium consumed in the United States.
The war has since been used as justification for mass incarceration and other draconian drug laws.
The Drug War: The History of the War Against Drugs, 2000-2012 A look at drug use and the war that it created shows that it was the US’s first and most brutal war on narcotics.
The government declared the war a war “against drugs” in 1965, but it quickly expanded the definition of the word to include “drugs with a destructive effect on society.”
According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, drug use is “among the top three causes of death for Americans between ages 15 and 64.”
And in 2000, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEa) declared a national emergency over the opioid epidemic.
The DEA seized $50.6 billion worth of drugs in the last decade alone.
Since the war was officially declared, the number of Americans who have been arrested for drug possession has increased by almost 400 percent.
Drug trafficking is now the largest source of revenue for the DEA, according to a 2013 report by the Cato Institute.
And because of the war in Afghanistan, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) reports that the war “has resulted in the death of over 4,000 people in Afghanistan and more than $40 trillion in revenue to the international narcotics industry.”
Drug use is also the largest cause of violence in the world.
The UNODC report cites the United Arab Emirates as the country with the most homicides in the drug trafficking industry, and the United Kingdom as the second largest source country for cocaine.
The U.S. is currently in the midst of a war in Yemen that has killed over 1,200 people, most of them civilians, and displaced millions more.
data, drug trafficking in the region has “increased by 20 percent since 2007.”
The US is the leading producer of opium and heroin, which makes up half of the global supply.
The United States also has the highest incarceration rate in the entire world.
Over the past five years, the country has spent more than 1.2 trillion dollars on the drug wars, with an estimated 4.5 million people imprisoned.
The drug war has also created an estimated 1.7 million homeless people and cost the US $1 trillion annually in lost revenue.
The wars on drugs and the drug epidemic have also created a new generation of people, some of whom have become disillusioned with the war.
This disillusionment has created an anti-drug movement.
The ‘War on Drugs’ and the Anti-War Movement Since 2009, the anti-war movement has been taking shape in the country, as anti-police sentiment has grown among many Americans.
Anti-police protesters have disrupted and vandalized several Republican political rallies.
The protests have also become a rallying point for people who want to challenge the militarized state.
In November 2016,
