    War on Drugs is a sick joke. Legalize and regulate.

    Excerpt:

    Drug dealers kill people, destroy families and might deserve the death penalty or life in prison for their crimes, President Trump says.

    Trump, speaking at a rally Saturday in Pennsylvania for congressional candidate Rick Saccone, said he got the idea from the leaders of China and Singapore. The U.S. criminal justice system, Trump said, is too soft on drugs.

    “You kill 5,000 people with drugs because you’re smuggling them in and you are making a lot of money and people are dying. And they don’t even put you in jail,” Trump said. “That’s why we have a problem, folks. I don’t think we should play games.”

    Trump said he recently asked the president of Singapore if that country has a drug problem.

    "He said 'We have a zero tolerance policy. That means if we catch a drug dealer, death penalty,'" Trump said.

    Trump acknowledged Saturday that his idea might have dissenters.
    "Probably you'll have some people who say 'Oh, that's not nice," Trump said. "But we have to do something."
    Yes, we do have to do something, and you've taken the best first positive step in that direction by supporting states who have decided to legalize and regulate marijuana so there is safe, legal access to cannabis products in the US, home-grown, processed in the US in nice facilities, and sold in nice stores by decent business people instead of grown in foreign countries, processed in filthy slave labor camps, hauled in here by illegal aliens and sold on the street by vicious criminals working for the drug cartels.

    Everyone will soon see the results in the numbers. It's the right decision and some version of this will soon apply to other types of recreational drugs in the not too distant future.

    You don't believe that the US should mimic Singapore, do you?

    What about the Federal Government that has been accused of drug dealing through many credible sources.

    We all know his deal with Sen. Gardner was less about legalizing drugs and more about getting Gardner to quit blocking his DOJ nominees. Let's keep things in the proper context. As Trump has shown repeatedly, he is more than ready to flip-flop on any promise he makes when and if he thinks it will benefit him. The truth matters.

    I didn't say anything, I just posted a Trump position as personally quoted by him.

    Yes, I understand that you were quoting Trump.

    The first sentence in my reply was a question on your position.
