2008:USA BANKS KEPT SOLVENT WITH DRUG CARTEL MONEY

I'm not advocating this is a good thing by publishing this, quite the opposite. This is why medical marijuana is illegal.  Keeps the price high on a drug that is far safer than most anti-depressant prescription drugs.


At the height of the 2008 banking crisis, Antonio Maria Costa, then head of the United Nations office on drugs and crime, said he had evidence to suggest the proceeds from drugs and crime were "the only liquid investment capital" available to banks on the brink of collapse.Inter-bank loans were funded by money that originated from the drugs trade," he said. "There were signs that some banks were rescued that way."

  1. Marijuana is NOT addictive. It is a medicine that would replace 2/3 of the big pharma drugs in use today,with side effects that could kill you. Jailing our kids for pot to keep the prison industrial complex going, our soldiers addicted to heroin from Afganistan, how does opium get into the US, camels swimming the ocean?

    1. I am not advocating prohibition of marijuana. Most of it comes from California and British Columbia anyway and isn't so much a factor in the cartels south of our border. Cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine are their preferred drug sales, more money per oz and easier to hide. The point of the article was that the whole reason the drug war is a farce is that its cash end up in American and European bankers hands. The higher the price the more profit and cash to the banking system and black ops budgets of various countries. Combine that with the fact that many police agencies heavily subsidize their budgets with seized assets from drug busts there is absolutely no economic incentive to stop the drug trade.

      I have had two very close friends die from suicides induced by SSRI based anti-depressants. Paxil, Zoloft, Prozac and other drugs do not mix with hand gun ownership. One of these friend just had some mild anxiety and never suffered from depression. He was dead after the first week by self-inflicted .45 shot to the head. The other friend died from a 9 mm. While I don't smoke myself, I had childhood asthma and avoid smoke at all costs, I know my friends would have been alive if they could have chilled out on marijuana. Next to nobody has died from marijuana. The same cannot be said of SSRI anti-depressants. The were a factor in the Columbine killing and other strange deaths. They increase depression in young people.
