Pelosi: It's Cheaper to Treat Teens for Drug Use Than Interdict Drugs at Border

CNS News -- May 6

Pelosi -- Severe fence avoidance syndrome

While pointing out that it is the responsibility of the federal government to secure the U.S.-Mexico border, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said Thursday it is cheaper to treat teens for drug use than it is to interdict drugs being smuggled across the border.
CNSNews.com pointed out to the speaker at her weekly press briefing that a recent Justice Department report indicated that one in five U.S. teenagers used drugs last year, and then asked: "Are you committed to sealing the border against the influx of illegal drugs from Mexico and, if so, do you have a target date in mind for getting that done?"
"Well if your question is about drugs, I'm for reducing demand in the United States," said Pelosi. "That is what our responsibility is on this subject. The RAND Corporation a few years ago did a report that said it would be much less expensive for us to, through prevention first and foremost, but through treatment on demand to reduce demand in our country, is the cheapest way to solve this problem."
American Patrol Report Comment -- May 8
From Jan. 2007 through Sept. 2009, as new border fencing went in, the price of Cocaine increased 75% while purity decreased.
American Border Patrol has proven that interdiction of drugs at the border would be a simple matter of completing the border fence.
Nancy Pelosi has established beyond the shadow of a doubt that she is more interested in an open border than the health and welfare of American kids.

This is a close race.. but don't you remember the black congress woman.. can't get the name..this will be the morning trivia... she refused to show her ID to congress police.. when one stopped her.. she called "assault".. when everyone was upset with her...she called it racism.

Ok your right Pelosi dumber..she probably would have called it rape and a gun violation as they were armed..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

Pelosi

She's exactly what her constituents want. Speaks volumes for them, doesn't it?

SamD, if you hadn't left the San Francisco are, you'd be in prison now!

Where would you rank her on the "American's Most Hated" list?
