In my mind it goes like this: the war on drugs includes disinformation campains that makes it sound like all drug use is unhealthy while users of drugs see that this isnt' true.. the messages then get ignored by virtually everyone. In addition, the war makes drug education virturally non-existant in schools (except for "just say no" lessons)... The war on drugs also makes drugs hard to aquire for young people who will find a way to get fucked up no matter how. This all leads to :
Children then almost die becasue they start inhaling and eating moth-balls.
