On this pinhead, there is a drug.
It was created in a laboratory in California last year.
It is 1000 times more powerful than heroin.
This so called "designer drug" is effectively undetectable.
This is the 21st Century.
How are we going to guard against this?
Chemists today can make small molecular changes to any drug.
That puts it beyond the definition of prohibitive law.
This drug is not only undetectable, it is legal.
If you ask me if we can win the war against drugs,
Then I have to say I don't know.
We can win battles, but at the moment, we're losing the war.
We're not fighting a battle against criminals,
Making money off other people's miseries.
We are fighting a battle against
One the major crises of the 20th Century
In my opinion, THE major crisis!!
We cannot ultimately stop the supply
Of cocaine, heroin, or any other drug.
We can only limit the demand for it.
That will mean making a decent life for people.
And producing a decent society,
That people want to live in, not escape from.
That, my friends, will not be easy.
That is all I have to say.
Monologue sampled from the English version of Traffic
"So what you're going to do is, inhale the smoke, and hold it. 'What is it, like freebase?' 'Not like, it is"
"Its a disease, an allergy of the body, an obsession of the mind"
