How The U.S. Government Created America’s Drug Problem


Let’s explore how the U.S. Government created America’s drug Problem. Official history makes frequent references to the British tea trade as a vital part of the British empire in the 1800s. It’s hard to understand how trading tea could be so profitable, until one learns that opium was a major component of the tea trade. Opium is a powerful and addictive pain killer that is often refined into heroin. It was banned by governments a century ago, but the opium trade continues to this day with secret approval by government officials. The American government has used the US military to protect the opium trade for two centuries and evidence shows this continues. The extent of this protection is open for debate, but if one connects the dots the image is ugly.

(By the way, former Secretary of State John Forbes Kerry — pictured above left — is no stranger to these inconvenient facts. His wealthy elite Boston Brahmim family, the Forbes, made their fortune in the “China trade” dealing with Opium.)
