I’ve seen the needle
and the damage done
A little part of it in everyone …
                                          –Neil Young

… the point is, once you cross that line, from the straight society to the drug society – marijuana, then speed, then it’s LSD, then it’s heroin, etc. Then you’re done.
                                                 –Richard Nixon

If you have your own country but not your own government, nothing you own is secure.
                                               –Khun Sa

On June 17, 1971, Richard Nixon first used the term “War on Drugs,” declaring, “Public enemy number one is drug abuse.” This was four days after the New York Times had published the Pentagon Papers, and exactly one year before the infamous Watergate “third-rate burglary.” Our country would never be the same

Both Watergate and the War on Drugs have changed the course of our republic, and neither for the good. Watergate weakened the Office of the President, helped destroy Americans’ faith in their governmental institutions, and almost empowered a completely unelected federal office-holder to serve as President of the US.

The War on Drugs compromises our Constitution, leaving our valiantly secured rights degraded. This “War” has created a militarized police force, a huge prison population and massive corruption. Drug money is laundered by our banks and used as off-the-books funding by our intelligence/military apparatus, allowing forces in the shadows to menace the integrity of our system.

The Drug War has been unsuccessful by any social measure. But then maybe it’s not about protecting our children or our community: maybe it’s about keeping a black market in place. Without prohibition, there are no gargantuan profits. We are given reasons of geopolitics and intelligence gathering, but at the end the day it all appears to be simply about money and power.

As it was with Watergate, an orchestrated scandal conducted from the shadows. Butch Merritt and Douglas Caddy offer us a different view of Watergate with Watergate Exposed now available through bookstores and in e-format from Amazon, Apple and other retailers.
