In 1971 President Richard Nixon declared a War On Drugs. Following Nixon’s disgrace the idea languished until 1980 under President Ronald Reagan. Under President Reagan a renewed War On Drugs was established with the “Just Say No” campaign of Nancy Reagan. Armed with all the tools of a professional marketing organization, the government entered out public school system to educate kids about illegal drugs. The result was that drug use. Under President Clinton, “The Pot Smoking” president, drug use among school age children skyrocketed. By the end of the 1990s, almost every high school senior surveyed said they knew where to obtain illegal drugs. North America is one of the world’s largest suppliers of illegal drugs around the globe, and illegal drugs have become big business in America. A business, complete with a full-fledged marketing campaign in our public schools designed as another of the Services Economy’s way to produce jobs. But there is no evidence of an attempt to reduce illegal (or legal) drug use in the United States—also the world’s largest consumer of illegal drugs.
