Last week, we had a lecturer in one of my political science classes, and while talking to us about Iraq, neo-colonialism, etc, he mentioned that the evidence was very strong that the CIA started introducing drugs into cities to weaken minorities. Now, the fact that this sounds about as likely as the moon landing “hoax”, combined with the fact that this guy very likely posted here under the username “Chumpsky”, given his political views, made me rather doubt the accuracy of this.
Today, I asked my teacher where it came from, and she seemed to agree with him that the evidence was credible (she’s somewhat more moderate, but that’s like saying “less conservative than Ayn Rand”, and she’s still pretty out there), and would present what was found out later.
I want to ask the people here, how much of this is actually somewhat at all mainstream, and how much is just plain delusional conspiracies? I know, for example, that some experiments were done with certain drugs by the CIA, but I rather doubt it extends this far.
