"Take a place like Horn Hardhardts cafeteria in NYC. Cover the windows with pictures of Lenny Bruce, Janis Joplin and Jimmy Hendricks. Nail a sign above the door: No Exit. Step right up, roll up yer sleeve, get what you need - one dollar.
Home robberies cease a couple days after we begin heroin maintenance. Today someone works two jobs, lives near the economic bottom (where you can't purchase insurance without high deductables), saves up to get an expensive top shelf Nikon only to have his camera ripped off three days later by a junkie.
In Manhattan our approach should corral $750,000 every day. Dope trafficking will drop down to a crawl. With Afghanistan's - Mex connection disconnected, Turkish poppy farmers will return to honest labor. A doper paying $15 a bag for a 5% fix in a doorway will gladly part company from a couple dollars for 9% government pure delivered with new, unused needles - inside the building where it's warm.
Junkies will rehabilitate themselves!Our heroin program will pay its own way.
President Nixon sought to spend $750 million tax payer's dollars trying to stamp out narcotic drugs. Nixon's 40 years war against drugs failed. Nixon's approach could not wipe out this evil because narcotics are not the evil! Yet lives remain staked.
How does our relief program operate: You are a junkie standing in line for your fix. First you get the Lev on video so the fine points of our program spread. (This was written before there was social media and Internet.) You get a card with your picture name and number. This entitles you to get your heroin forever. Put your card in our trusty computer - vroom (we find out how many active junkies we've got, how much heroin they are using - and how often).
A phlebotomist administers the heroin. An ex-junkie assisting helps to find a vein (junkies' veins collapse). Keeping your trust forever - you don't pay until after you get your fix- place your card on a tabulator - throw the lever over like when you purchase gasoline - get a receipt - go sit on a couch- nod out, rest . . . leave when ready.
Junkies have a needle fetish. Many are weak, unhappy people. Three issues contribute to their junk addiction: the outside world situation. (Times are tough all over). The localized environment (slums), and the Man. The Man is the policeman who often can be seen (in the event one knows where to look) protecting the pusher man.
The junkie world situation improves with every word - junkies can pan-handle a couple bucks - right away the junkie's agony is over - the user, freed from any need to rob, mug, steal and / or deal with the pusher or police man. The junkie is off the street not under arrest while coming to terms with his heroin dependence.
Let's suppose that you and yours are a junkie couple. You did 700 and 600 hits of "stuff" before you were rehabilitated. You both have job opportunities - and you'd like to have a baby . . .
But you don't have any credit - for years the two of you robbed, stole, whored, etc. However you've got $1300 invested in the Junkies' Eye Deal Credit Union - you can return to the program and borrow money to clean up your act, pay the program back, establishing credit, and slip back into the stream of American life.
Never mind Nixon's 3/4 billion. In Western New York alone, we save 300 thousand dollars. The local Police Departments can recycle their narcotics squads. And the Sheriff won't need a highly paid gang of drug cops because all the junkies will have an unbreakable junk permit.
We are fighting fire with fire - not creating a "permissive society." Pushing junk in the street guarantees years of your life will be spent in jail! Nor should we expect newcomers to be in line with the junkies. You are cardless and curious you can get a $5 sniff for your learning experiment.
I tested this program on John Otto's right wing radio show. People called in. "How do we get this program in the government?" (Vote Mother Mary). "How do we get you syndicated in newspapers?" (Send them a sample). Give the people a chants. Let the people decide the issue for themselves."

47 Years Later, 2018, The Narcotic Crisis Unfolds Worldwide
In 2016, approximately 64,000 Americans died from a narcotic overdose. In many cases the needle was still stuck in the addict's cold arm. A six years old girl said to her school bus driver, "Mommy and daddy won't wake up."
Once upon a time, in the early 1950's, heroin was not an illegal narcotic with criminal penalties attached. All our Horse pistols had heroin, morphine and codeine on every floor for post-surgical patients. Patients rang their buzzers and the nurse would appear with narcotic relief for the patient's discomfort.
I recollect Harry X, who owned a construction company in Buffalo N. Y. In 1954, my mother worked for him, at home, setting appointments. Harry had gall bladder surgery and when Harry came home from the horse pistol he told my mother that from his hospital experience he'd become addicted to heroin.
Doctors and nurses were also abusing heroin. The medicine lockers in every hospital had keyless entry. Congress decided heroin should be reclassified an illegal narcotic drug, yet the heroin derivatives, codeine and morphine would be legal, under government oversight.
Marijuana, also known as cannabis indica, was wrongly declared a narcotic drug, down the same illegal road as heroin, even though cannabis indica is a plant that when fired up then smoked merely generates a euphoric psychotropic experience. That is what smoking marijuana does while bringing on hunger pains for double cheeseburgers chased down with chocolate malted milk shakes. Marijuana use is worldwide.
Cannibis indica, also known as "pot," is an herb, not a narcotic gateway drug. The indica is a gateway for smoking more cannibis indica. That is all. Cannabis indica is a blessing from Mother Nature, a relaxant to slip your stresses away; besides bringing miraculous medicinal benefits, when necessary.
A child with debilitating epilepsy may get 50 epilectic attacks daily, suffering seizures all day! With one drop of special cannabis indica oil under their tongues, the epilectic two-year olds' right away are normal playfull kids, freed from epilectic attacks for the whole week.
To live a normal life an epilectic kid requires only a drop of special cannabis oil under their tongue, that, once a week. How can this be a violation of our counter-productive drug laws?
Do pharmaceutical giants have drugs one can dissolve under a tongue to control convulsions and loss of consciousness associated with abnormal electrical epilectic brain activity? The pharma giants are not interested in dishing cures brought from medicinal home grown cannabis indica.
When someone smokes a bunch of marijuana they refer to their euphoria as getting zonked, bombed, blasted, toasted, wasted and / or wrecked. Wreck-reational pot smoking is also medicinal! The pot's effect is to relax the user! That is medicinal, as is an increase in appetite medicinal for some.
A relaxant is what the so-called "evil weed" is, besides enhancing appetites, bringing relief from Chemo-therapies and medicinally, as noted, way more than we realized! Worldwide, marijuana is the miracle-medicinal plant of choice.
Usually, the first time one smokes marijuana, upon the first puff, after holding their breath and exhaling, the virgin smoker starts laughing their head off. That is how the first taste of the "evil weed," marijuana, establishes itself in your brain upon a first use. The first time user experiences uncontrollable fits of laughter.
Some people "try" marijuana and don't like it. They get uncomfortable, socially paranoid, and even amongst friends, feel very much alone in the group. They do not intend on ever smoking marijuana again. Their one-time social puffs were enough. The pot they tried, yet did not take to, wears off within the hour.
A normal user's brain, regardless of first time uncontrollable laughter, does not develop an addictive need for marijuana. Yet with heroin, a user may become addicted to the heroin for its up-lift-downer effect, or addicted to smoking tobacco for its nicotine effect.
The stone pot-head develops a taste for smoking pot just as one develops a taste for tobacco. When there isn't any pot around hard core stoners get edgy; maybe even short-tempered for a day or two. That is all.
The reason for misleading a committee of Congress about the values of smoking marijuana was not about the potentially euphoric leafy pot plant.
The reason behind "fake news" descriptions (for Congress' consumption), of marijuana being promoted by virile black men to entice innocent white women to engage in sex was not to cast aspersions on that so-called "evil" marijuana. The target was marijuana's "evil" 1st cousin twin, cannabis sativa, also known as Hemp.
Eliminating commercial cannabis sativa Hemp from the marketplace was the reason behind the government's heavy duty bad-mouthing of the innocent marijuana "pot" plant. Soon enough the incarceration bureaucracy was in on the deal with both feet deep, as the pot user-dealers did not pack weapons.
The falsities about cannabis indica marijuana's use, black men seducing white women, blah, etc., blah, was presented to an oversite committee in Congress to legally remove Hemp from the agricultural marketplace as a commercial crop. Congress' cannabis indica prohibition was their cover!
Even today, with "pot" use going legal in state after state, growing industrial Hemp is still illegal in most states.
Why? From commercially grown cannabis sativa anyone talented in commercial commerce could start creating lotions, manufacturing paper, cardboard, plastics, rope and cloth, besides food! Hemp is free. You purchase hemp seeds for your start-up company and then you are good to go, rolling out all your products with fresh grown seeds, crop after crop, year in and year out!
On the health issue of Hemp as food, a breakfast gruel of Oats'n Hemp for breaking your a.m. fast guarantees you live your whole life free from debilitating illnesses. As your Oats'n Hemp moves through your digestive track, your meal absorbs all the bad cholesterol you ingested the day before; eliminating all that unhealthy cholesterol with high proportions of low-density lipoprotein, associated also with increased risks of coronary heart disease.
Hark hark! The following day, when you go to the bathroom for your early sit down trip, all your harmful cholestrol, absorbed by yesterday's gruel you ate the morning before, that when ingested, slid merrily along in your intestines while you slept is plop - expelled and flushed, taking all that unhealthy cholestrol along for the ride.
The pharmaceutical giants rather sell you Lipitor or Atorvastatin tablets instead of promoting healthy breakfast meals of Oats 'n Hemp. Healthy people are a financial drag on the pharmaceuticals' business plan in clue ding their stock dividends.
Du Pont, etc was tied in with Shell and Standard Oil, using their crude oil to manufacture plastics for industrial, commercial, and consumer uses. Were Hemp legal, anyone with spare acres to grow could get into the plastic manufacturing biz without a petroleum or Du Pont connection and become the next Du Pont.
Du Pont wanted to eliminate that competitive possibility. They paid for their Esso petroleum while hemp grows for free and does not even require fertilizer. Du Pont quietly lobbied Congress to make cannabis sativa Hemp illegal, too, supposedly as an after-thought because on sight, in a field, one cannot tell the diff rinse between a cannabis sativa hemp plant and a cannabis indica marijuana plant, a fact ironic when, in actuality, the reason for marijuana prohibitions was to eliminate industrial Hemp.
For Du Pont, the path to monopoly was to stigmitize sativa, wrapping the sativa with its look-alike "evil weed" 1st cousin indica to eliminate sativa from the agricultural marketplace so Esso's Standard Oil could flow without competition.
The marijuana and Hemp prohibitions began in the 1930's. When World War II began the government changed its mind about the Hemp prohibitions and urged farmers to grow Hemp for the war effort - rope, military uniforms, etc. Today you can still find wild Hemp growing along the roadsides in Wisconsin.
All cannabis is good! Marijuana is a medicinal. Growing Hemp is the much needed worldwide medicine to return good ship Mother Earth to balance and healthiness.
Heroin v. Morphine
Lets talk heroin, a miracle drug extracted from opium poppy, one of Mother Nature's miracle plants. Imagine you came down with cancer of the brain, lungs, bones, stomach and skin. Your weight dropped from 210 to 84 lbs. and you look like death took a holiday. The party is soon to be over. You have maybe a week to live.
You have an I-V with a morphine drip. Heroin is illegal. You are pain free but groggy, barely lucid, barely able to even talk. Your children come to see you but aren't sure you recognize them.
With straight heroin instead of the heroin derivatave, morphine, the excruciating pain in your stomach and bones is abated. With heroin you don't hurt plus your brain is bell clear. You can talk to your loved ones, say good-bye, joke about St. Peter, and order your kids to do whatever their mother tells them after you are gone.
Isn't that a much better way to leave your loved ones strong? Of course!
Mother Nature's Opium Poppy
I smoked opium in Saigon, Vietnam, during the Vietman war, circa 1968. I expressed interest in learning about opium to a 'Mama san' who ran an opium "den" upstairs in her house a few blocks behind the Olympic Bar along the Saigon waterfront.
When I said I wanted to learn cooking opium, 'Mama san' sent her 7 year old son downstairs. The kid came back with a carved hardwood box. Mama-san opened the box and displayed her private opium pipe, about 20 inches long, the length of the pipe and bowl inlaid with silver and gold. She lifted her opium pipe from the box and said, "When my father die he give to me, souvenier. When I die I give to my son."
You first saw the opium poppy in The Wizard of Oz, growing in the fields along the yellow brick road where Dorothy smelled the poppy, became sleepy, then off to dreamland, snoozing from that exquisite opium poppy smell you did not experience in the movie theater.
Once you get an opium sniff a half block away from an opium den, you have that unmistakable opium scent with you for the rest of your life.
William Empson, Professor of English Literature at Sheffield University published Seven Types of Ambiguity with Chatto and Windus, in 1930. Empson became Professor of English Literature at Peking National University in 1937. In 1968, Empson taught literature for a summer at State University of New York at Buffalo where we met and were acquainted.
One evening, at an after-the-poetry-reading party, William Empson's wife told me that when her husband was teaching English literature in Peking, she went to an opium den every day and smoked bowls of opium for a whole month and she did not become addicted to opium.
I landed in Saigon two days before the ARVN Tet uprising shut down Saigon. Upon the Tet, a curfew on Vietnamese workers was in force every day at 2:00 PM, so our ship, the S.S. Steel Vendor was docked a full month unloading, great for the crew with double time pay for the crew in the war zone.
I went ashore every afternoon dressed in my black Vietnamese pajamas and red bandana with my top shelf Nikon Photomic TN camera along. I went to the opium den to learn how to cook opium and to have photographs taken of me with my Nikon TN by various Vietnamese while I was, "back on the hip," cooking up their opium.
One day, a young Vietnamese customer in his early twenties, by his uniform, traffic police, told me that he was addicted to opium. I asked him, "How much opium do you smoke?" He said, "One bowl, every other day. Maybe next year I will increase to two bowls every other day."
On another afternoon I cooked opium for four American G.I.'s. Corporal Brown from N.Y.C. smoked 22 bowls of opium, paying with U.S. military script. The Mama san smoked ten bowls each morning, and ten bowls every night. I cooked 22 bowls for Corporal Brown that afternoon.
Recollect, before flu shots, when the flu was infecting everyone and when you caught the flu you were sick as a dog, feverish and aching head to toe. Were you able to visit a neighborhood den and purchase, back in the day, for one dollar, a teaspoon full of opium ashes, your flu attack would be dramatically enjoined.
Ashes are ashes, leftovers from a fire. One teaspoon full of medicinal opium ashes is plenty. Pinch the ashes. Put your pinch in a tea cup. Pour-over hot green tea, then lace the tea with honey as opium ashes are very bitter. Down your opium tea.
Twenty minutes later all your body aches and fever are washed away; you feel normal, not sick; pain free the rest of the day. Have a second cup of tea laced with opium ashes at bedtime and sleep your whole night through as though log.
Are opium ashes, to mask your temporary flu virus a better solution then an injection of dangerous antibiotics, like penicillin? Yes.
Opium is a blessing from Mother Nature. There are built in inhibitors in the opium, to keep the user from becoming addicted. But even so, people opium addicted, as long as they can smoke their opium every other day or so, lead normal lives.
The word, Opioid is a fascist confusion.
Labeling our pharmaceutical narcotic scourge an Opioid Epidemic is to proclaim Auschwitz was a work camp. The Nazi sign on the gate, "Work Will Set You Free," was a fascist confusion of reality. Auschwitz was a death camp.
Congress' first mistake was inserting criminal penalties into a medical issue, labeling heroin a narcotic with 'posession of,' the crime. Narco-police are viciously opposed to any changes in their addicted prisoners' jail cell life.
Yet had Congress simply not interfered in our lives, plastic bags would've been manufactured from Hemp, marijuana would have been recognized a medicinal plant, heroin would have been the go-to drug for pain, and Richard Nixon would not have declared his war on drugs which was, in retrospect, billions of dollars later, a war on people establishing a now-entrenched permanent counter-productive jail industrial complex to protect their fascist jail-house population.
Today 29 states have laws allowing marijuana for medicinal purposes. Eight states: Washington, Alaska, Oregon, California, Colorado, Nevada, Massachusetts, and Washington D.C. made recreational marijuana legal, recognizing marijuana is not an addictive narcotic. Other states are following. States where marijuana is legal are starting to rake in billions of dollars in fresh revenues.
DEA is Drug Enforcement Agency, a government bureaucracy opposed to state laws challenging drug prohibitions built into federal laws. They believe their oversight job-security is under attack. Jail bureacracies in prisons under private management also feel threatened. Stock valuations slip when their jail cell incubators aren't over-stuffed with non-violent prisoners.
The private prisons have lobbyists who regularly call on county judges to sentence people convicted of marijuana posession to prison terms, so to keep their jail cells occupied!
The 535 hypocrites of Congress cast a blind eye and deaf ear on the truth of these jail house issues.
In Colorado, because the DEA refuses to grant that marijuana is not a "narcotic," federal laws that prohibit "narcotic" assets to be bank deposited force the marijuana dispensaries to maintain huge safes to hold their daily revenues.
Mother Nature's Opium a Blessing!
Opium poppy is a medicinal plant. From opium we get heroin, a deeply condensed version of the medicinal opium poppy. Mother Nature did not develop her opium poppy to create drug addicts! Heroin has similar anti-addictive properties as does the opium poppy from which heroin is distilled.
Regardless the original reasons behind an addict's getting addicted, the heroin addict discovers he requires more and more heroin to obviate his or her "pain," while getting "high." Finally, the addict finds that using heroin is only making them normal and that, without their heroin "fix" they really do get sick.
Upon that, addicts decide all by themselves on their own, without any anti-drug bureaucracy carrots, they'd be better off without heroin and they keep cutting back on their heroin fix until they are drug free. Mother Nature's "fix" ironic.
Besides heroin, our drug enforcement government bureaucrats stigmitized marijuana until one state, California, made marijuana legal for medicinal purposes. Their "pot" stigma is wearing off as one at a time, all 48 states are legalizing marijuana!
The incarceration bureaucracy is viciously against do-gooders distributing clean needles for street addicts. The incarcerators are totally against the idea of even setting up places where heroin addicts can go to safely shoot up their drugs.
As soon as this heroin maintenance solution is presented, every bureaucrat making money off the addicted people will be screaming opposition from their roof-tops.
It's all about the money.
Heroin addiction is exactly the same addiction as nicotine addiction.
The same addiction. Ask any person with a cigarette dangling when are they going to quit. The young answer they are "not ready yet." How many million people have struggled to quit smoking, spending billions of dollars? The addiction struggle with heroin is the very same addiction struggle as with tobacco. But you don't go to jail for "using" tobacco; You Do Not Pass Go only for stealing tobacco to feed your habit.
When Congress made heroin illegal, the medical community didn't have post surgical pain replacements, opening the door for pharmaceutcal solutions, thus Oxicontin, Oxicodone, vicodin, demeral, etc. But these pharmaceutical narcotic creations do not have any built in anti-addictive properties, like Mother Nature's opium poppy. The opposite is the deal with their super-addictive pharmaceutical poisons.
Let any doctor prescribe Oxicontin or Oxicodone for pain and by day 3 the patient is addicted! We have, because of pharmaceutical deceptions more than 20 million people hooked on big pharma narcotics. Last year, because of legal lobbyist supported pharma creating 20 million narcotic dope addicts, we had 65,000 drug overdose deaths and that number could be going up.
When I needed to have a wisdom tooth pulled, sixty years ago, the dentist instructed me to swish warm salted water to seal the gum and after the novacaine wore off take two aspirin every four hours for pain. Today, after extracting a wisdom tooth dentists unwisely prescribe 30 Oxycontin pills.
Narcotic Addiction a Worldwide Prob Limb!
USA is one of the few countries where posession of even small amounts heroin is illegal. All of the other countries where heroin posession is not a crime are shrinking their addict populations without an overdose epidemic.
But the anti-narcotic jail bureaucracies, in association with the Pharmaceutical Association lobbyists of the Congress, hold sway in America's legislative branch of our democracy. Their sway is the swag they give to members for their reelections. To them, 65,000 overdosed people every year is to them, mere collateral damage.
The planned billions of dollars to be spent on ending our overdose crisis are going to merely extend anti-drug bureaucracies' status quo, not protect addicts in crisis.
Billions of dollars are being earmarked for certified drug counselors, police, drug courts, magistrates, and rehab facilities with university trained addiction rehab counselers. With 20 million people in USA who qualify as drug addicted, how many thousand rehab facilities must we have and for how long?
Yet at the bottom of the government's anti-narcotic totem pole are all the strung-out addicts themselves and the cost of their food, clothing and housing while they get healthy enough to split their rehab beds for the street and the narcotic drugs they need.
News Flash: Thursday, March 22, 2018, at 9:20 AM, The Washington Post reported, under an online headline:
Here's what Congess is stuffing into its $1.3 trillion spending bill by Mike DeBonis, Ed O'Keefe and Erica Werner
In the their first paragraph the three reporters state, "The draft bill runs 2,232 pages, and we're going through it so you don't have to.
Nine paragraphs down find:
"The bill increases funding to tackle the opioid epidemic, a boost that lawmakers from both parties hailed as a win, [confusing reality]. The legislation allocates more than $4.65 billion across agencies to help states and local governments on efforts toward prevention, treatment and law enforcement initiatives."
U. S. government $$ billions vs. the million heroin-user's sales force!
All heroin users become sales people for heroin, their drug of choice, seeking to enlist non-user friends with free trials so they purchase a couple bags a week. The user-seller scores ten bags for $5.00 a bag then resells his scag for $10.00 a bag, netting his own bags in the mix.
Then the heroin user-seller, getting deeper into his own addiction, starts cutting his bags to stretch the heroin to get more heroin for himself. Upon that, his clientel starts looking for sellers with better smack.
Because quality control over street-corner heroin is nonexistant, the street bags may be adulterated with Fentanyl, to stretch the heroin. Users shoot up and then, after five minutes, the Fentanyl kicks in and upon that they pass out, overdosed and near death from Fentanyl's fatal lace.
U. S. government control of legal heroin is key!
We need an Act of Congress legalizing Heroin, returning heroin to its legal status circa 1953. As soon as The Heroin Act is passed, we immediately save ourselves 4.1 billions of tax dollars to start, besides saving 64,000 people's lives!
Follow the money. For the most current money trail, see paragraph 9, above. Anti-drug bureaucracies clearly have an interest in festering their status quo, not solving our nationwide prob limb because our problem solved zaps their bureaucracies.
Who besides Donald J.Trump wants concrete walls running along our southern border to stop the flow of illegal tax-free drugs, when all narcotic drugs supposedly pouring in could be legalized in a heart beat? Heroin is an illegal, not an evil.
Anti-drug bureaucracies are an evil incarnate! Bureaucracies kill.
The Cement Wall We Need!
Watching a TV cop show, when the time and place is set to go for the dope deal, the deed comes down in an empty commercial neighborhood before SWAT teams show, headights lit for their shoot up to capture the skag and retain their cash.
Were you wanting to part company from your own bagfull of pre-wrapped hundreds, in exchange for kilos of uncut smack, would you prefer an unlit alley to run your dope deals, or a grassy knoll on a sunny day where you can easily see whether or not there are cops about?
Major drug deals are going down on Trump golf courses every day! A couple golf carts meet on the edge of the green at one hole or another, never the same place twice. One golfing pair has a golf bag full of heroin, topped with an AK-47. The other party's bag is filled with bucks and Glock pistols. The players make a golf bag switch and nonchalantly short the round to go their separate ways.
We need cement walls around all Trump's golf courses that are near our southern borders. Cement walls can keep those south-of-the-border drug dealers off Trump's courses. So who should pay for Trump's private 20 foot-high cement walls protecting Trump's golf courses along with protecting Trump's wealthy unarmed golf clientel?
Under our Constitution, Donald J. Trump has to pay for his own cement, or his golf courses have to be shut down for allowing illegal drug dealing on their premises.
Stop & Get!
We need 50,000 Stop & Get shops so heroin is available everywhere because addicts are everywhere. The Stop & Get shops were described above c. 1971 in Mother Mary's candidate for president literature. The diff rinse: 47 heroin years have passed.
Pharmaceutical narcotics are stacked against the patient to promote user addiction! When someone seeks a perscription for pain, we want their Dr. to write a script for the patient to present to management at the patient's most convenient Stop & Get.
For thousands of years people have been altering their states of mind with beer, wine and / or whiskey, marijuana, and opium.
In Sumarian lands
They brewed there beer
For six days and then
They drank it and rested.
The Book ov Lev It A Kiss c. 1971
Give or take, three % of the world population habitually use alcohol and or drugs to get through the day, every day. In America, three % of our 320 million people is approximately 9,600,000 people drinking more than two alcoholic drinks every day, smoking marijuana joints every day, or habitually using narcotics every day.
Set aside boozers and potheads. Because of the government's declaration that heroin was illegal, to fill the gap in pain medication the pharmaceutical giants developed pain relief meds that are way more addictive and dangerous than the illegal heroin shot up in Nelson Algren's novel, "The Man With The Golden Arm."
The pharmaceutical narcotic epidemidc involves 20 million Americans addicted to pharmaceutical narcotics in addition to 9 million boozers and pothead over-smokers. Most addictions began with a pain issue. The Dr. prescribed a pharmaceutical narcotic e.g. Oxycontin. Within three days an addiction cycle began.
The addicts end up scoring their drugs in the street, graduating from the expensive Dr. visits and Oxycontin pills to reasonably priced street heroin. When the street dealer cuts his junk supply with Fentanyl, to stretch his heroin, their customers, assuming the dealer's batch is from the same batch as the day before, end up shooting up way too much heroin, and after five minutes, when the Fentanyl kicks in - on top of the smack the user passes out, Fentanyl overdosed, left with unconscious minutes before death.
Last year's 65,000 narcotic overdose deaths were people from all walks of life.
50,000 Stop & Get Shops!
Wherever you see an empty store could be a Stop & Get. A 50,000 shop chain won't be at a loss for business what with at least 20 million users nationwide, the average biz per shop should be 400 addicts from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., forking over $2.50 per hit for a nationwide yearly gross of 18 billion, 250 million dollars, besides 250,000 needed jobs.
Q. and A.
Q.: How are we going to supply 50,000 Stop & Get shops?
A.: Pardon El Chapo. Nor do we have to cut El Chapo loose from his prison cell. We need only supply El Chapo with a cell phone as we are agreeing to a full pardon after he gets our chain up and running with a steady uncut heroin supply.
The deal for El Chapo and his drug cartel is so rich El Chapo can afford to cut all the other cartels in for a legal slice of America's heroin pie, therfore 35,000 innocent Mexicans won't be cut down in the drug cartels' territorial battles; so we save 35,000 innocent Mexicans who yearly get caught in the cross-fire hail of cartel bullets along with 65,000 American user-victims of street corner heroin laced with Fentanyl.
50,000 Stop & Get shops will generate more than 18 billion dollars the first year to enable the addicted people to have a chance to end their addiction at their own pace vs. a fascist government bureaucracy seeking to primarily feather its own nest.
Which do you prefer? 100,000 lives saved or 4.1 billion taxpayer dollars wasted?
The Electronic Wall!
Home home on the range requires all the fencing must be down, replaced with back-to-back state of the art electronic Border Kiosks every 300 yards. Any person crossing the border is required to register at the kiosk for their ID card. The person inserts $5 in the slot, an appropriate kiosk camera snaps a picture and a photo ID card is created. Each card includes a GPS computer chip so every visitor can be tracked.
With 300 yards between the kiosks, someone seeking to avoid registration may cross at the middle - 150 yards away from the kiosks on either side. Cams hidden on the kiosks focused for infinity will sense movement and snap picures to be immediately uploaded to silent tracking drones via WIFI.
Word of mouth will spread that even a single peso will produce the ID card w/ picture so there isn't any excuse for not obtaining a visitor's photo ID.
The kiosk will talk in Spanish to the visitor, instructing them where to stand for their photo ID and that wherever they work, they must demand to be paid with a check. With their ID cards, any bank will gladly cash their pay check for $0.25. Perhaps we have the bank deduct 5% for potential health care services while they are in U. S. A.
Companies that hire migrant labor for construction work must pay minimum hourly wages as must all employers and legally cannot pay visiting workers in cash like the old days. Furthermore, required of the employers is a reduced contribution to our Social Security fund to be negotiated.
One possibility is the employers may be allowed to deduct the workers' social security contribution paid by the employer off their own income tax, an incentive to get American employers to cooperate.
