Drug decriminalization is deadly, but George Soros is pushing it further

Did George Soros want American dead?

It’s hard to think of any other reason why Soros’ Open Society Foundation is funding the think tank driving a legislative push for the insane Drug Policy Reform Act.

This bill would remove federal penalties for possession of heroin, coke and other hard drugs, among other disastrous measures.

This latest onslaught on American society is being driven by the Drug Policy Alliance, which (along with its advocacy group Drug Policy Action) receives millions in open society dollars.

The alliance played a crucial role in shaping the bill, which is co-sponsored by squad members Cori Bush (D-Mo.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and was recently reinstated to the House of Representatives.

This is while America’s drug overdose crisis is reaching epic proportions.

Drug overdoses killed more than 106,000 Americans in 2021, despite calls for federal decriminalization by the Drug Policy Alliance.

The annual load has certainly gotten worse since then, owing to the endless flood of fentanyl across our southern border and the emergence of new killers like Tranq.

(We owe that in part to Soros TheAlso: His money is also used to fund organizations fighting to keep our border open.)

Cities across the country are reeling from their own failed decriminalization experiments and regretting them.

Look at Oregon, where progressives passed Measure 110 decriminalization in 2020 — only to see a spike in crime and homelessness, making the state the nation’s leader in prescription opioid and meth abuse.

Now, many progressives in Oregon want the measure overturned.

Or in San Francisco, where drug law enforcement has all but relaxed de facto Decriminalization, which led to a similar humanitarian catastrophe – leading to belated and so far ineffective countermeasures.

Even Portugal, a global pioneer of this monstrous strategy, is now concerned as addiction skyrockets and crime soars.

That’s not hard: cocaine, heroin and (especially) synthetic opioids kill.

Policies that remove meaningful consequences for their possession and use only favor dealers and self-destructive addicts alike, leading to more bloodshed.

Activists like Soros and his foundation’s henchmen who support such policies have blood on their hands.
