We all know that the “war on drugs” isn’t working, and there are no shortage of reasons why.
First, we have to finally be ready and willing to admit that the prohibition of marijuana and mandatory minimum sentencing does not work. Never has, never will, and holding out for incarceration to become rehabilitation isn’t going to get us anywhere.
Then we have to realize that perfectly legal drugs, peddled by Big Pharma and the doctors in their pockets, are growing the addiction rates of opioids such as heroin, morphine, vicodin, and others.
And while these would be major, earth-shattering changes to American society, there are some police departments out there who’ve found small ways in which they can open up a new front in the “war on drugs”.
In Florida, one precinct has taken the route of shaming those who prey on the addicted and afflicted.
A Florida sheriff’s office is letting would-be drug buyers know that one of the homes where a suspected drug dealer sold his product is “closed for business.”
The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office posted a large sign in the front lawn of a home that was allegedly the site of numerous illegal narcotics dealings by the owner, Jamie Bullock.
The sign itself was incredible.

Just days ago on Friday, Bullock was again arrested and charged with narcotics crimes after a search warrant was executed at the location.
