    :wow: The war on drugs was cool until it effected the suburbs?

    Lets just hope this spreads to all locations and demographics. I'm not surprised.

    We wanted drug law reforms and this is the unfortunate path that it took to get there. Hurts tho. :smh:

    This is what needs to happen everywhere with all drugs. Why punish someone who is seeking help?

    Read about this, and I find it funny in a way. This needs to be exposed every chance possible but the people who like to talk about equality won't pick this up.

    Not even their land which is the worst part. Def contemplating selling heroin for a couple months to the rich white yuppies in Buckhead. Their communities will still be standing and they get free treatment as opposed to 20 years of jail time and broken homes...

    When Black people were suffering from the crack epidemic, America said "Lock them up, they're criminals."

    Now, when this epidemic hits white suburbia, all of sudden, the epidemic is not a crime but a disease. :smh:

    America isn't for us.

    OK Mr. Adams. You don't know what changed?

    They don't like us here fam, it's cool though. Just came back from Ghana not too long ago and it's beautiful! Lots of great business opportunities there. One of my uncles out there is whippin a Maserati. Another one is whippin a land rover. Paid for with cash. Africa is where the money is right now.

    I read this in Rico's voice talkin about D.C. :lol:

    But this also shines light on another issue, actually two, 1. Money is being pushed to make changes that benefit the certain people and 2. certain people love playing victim and acting like some things are new and never seen before.

    Agreed with homie that said this place isn't for us. As I get older, I'm starting to really question whether I could actually start a family here. What are some other countries you all would move to if given the opportunity? :nerd:

    I was in Nigeria in april-may. My parents are from there and honestly I am getting my architectural license, learning the ropes and moving there when my parents retire. Deign and build over there god willing :pimp:. That sickness of assimilating/ being a second class citizen/ constant BS we have to deal with completely subsides and washes away when you're over there. Dont get me wrong every place has problems but at least its problems with my people :pimp:.
