Drinking and driving used to be tolerated...that’s where “one for the road” comes from. When we finally had enough, attitudes changed, penalties got real, and an advertising campaign started to get the word out that this was no longer acceptable.If Americans were inclined to stop buying drugs, they would have done so decades ago. It's not going to happen.
Too many think their recreational drug use doesn’t harm anyone, maybe except themselves. When that’s shown to be a lie, in very graphic terms, many will reconsider.
It’ll never be completely eliminated, of course. But every less dollar to the cartels is less power they have.
