Take a place like Horn Hardhardts cafeteria in NYC. Cover the windows with pictures of Lenny Bruce (Janis Joplin or Jimmy Hendricks) Deep ending . . . hang a sign over the door: No Exit . . step rite up, roll up yer sleeve, get what you need - dollar a shot.
Most home robbery stops a couple days after we begin our program. The insurance companies benefit. And we save billions of dollars per year in the private sector. Today a guy works at two jobs, lives in a poor neighborhood (where you can't get insurance), saves his money and buys an expensive camera - only to have it ripped off 3 days later - this is a slow burn from which there is never return.
Our own approach will bring in $750,000 a day in NYC alone. Junk traffic ceases almost immediately. The Afghanistan - Mexican connection disconnects. Turkish poppy farmers return to honest labor. Junkies who pay $15 a bag for a 5% lo - cal fix in the street will gladly pay one buck for 9% government pure - on the inside where it's warm. The junkies will rehabilitate themselves and the program will pay its own way.
President Nixon wanted to spend $750 million (that's 3/4 billion) tax payer's dollars (yours - not his) trying to stamp out the problem. This drug war has been tried and it just doesn't work. Nixon's way will never stamp out this evil. Lives are at stake.
How does our program operate: You are a junkie standing in line for yer government fix. First you get the Lev man on video tape so word of the program spreds. Then you get a card with your picture name and number. This entitles you to the service forever wherever whenever. Put your card in our trusty computer - vroom (we find out how many junkies we've got, how much heroin they use - where and how often).
A practical nurse or phlebotomist administers. An ex-junkie assistant helps her find a vein (junkies' veins collapse). Keeping your trust forever - you don't pay till after - place your card on a tabulator - throw the lever over like when you purchase gasoline - get a receipt - go sit on a couch- nod out, rest . . . get going.
Junkies have a needle fetish. They are generally very weak, unhappy people. Three major causes contribute to their sickness: the outside world situation. (Times are tough all over). The localized environment (slums), and the Man. The Man is the policeman who often can be seen (in the event you know where to look) protecting the pusher man.
The world situation improves with every line - you can pan handle a dollar - right away the agony is over - the junkie is freed from his need to rob, mug, steal and / or deal with either man. The junkie is off the street - in a rap session with Lev - coming to terms with their issues.
Let's suppose that you and yours are a junkie couple. You did 700 and 600 hits of "stuff" before you're rehabilitated. You both hold part time jobs - smoke a lot ov pot and you want to have a baby . . .
You ain't got any credit - for years you robbed, stole, whored, etc. But you've got $1300 invested in the Junkies' Eye Deal Credit Union - you can always borrow $1300 from the program. And pay the program back to establish credit and get back in the stream of American life.
Never mind Nixon's 3/4 billion. In Erie County alone, we save 300 thousand dollars. The local Police Departments can recycle their narcotics squads. And Sherrif won't need a highly paid gang of drug cops because junkies will have a junk permit.
We are fighting fire with fire - not creating a "permissive society." Pushing your own heroin guarantees many years of your life in prison! Nor should we expect any new comers lined up with the junkies. You're cardless and curious you can get a $5 sniff as learning experience.
I tested this program on John Otto's right wing radio. People called in. "How do we get this program in the government?" (Vote Mother Mary). "How do we get you sindicated in newspapers?" (Send them a sample). Give the people a chants. Let the people decide for themselves.
