Reflect on two documents

(1) Why we Took Coca Out of Coca-Cola

(2) Cocaine out of Coca-Cola_Blacks

Questions:6 below are links to help you answer the questions 

What were the real reasons that coca was taken out of Coca-Cola?

Do these reasons mean that cocaine was not or is not harmful?

How then could you still justify the prohibition of  Cocaine by the government of the USA?

Question 5A/ Nixon 

Review the video of the CATO Institute and the document by Raenseller Lee as provided for this week’s module. 

  1. Describe how drug cartels are able to recruit new members when their members are murdered.
  2. Describe also how the concept of drug cartels’ corporate social responsibility makes it difficult to control drug trafficking in Latin American countries
  3. Do you agree that drug cartels are actually socially responsible? If not, why not?
  4. Why was it alleged that the War on Drugs by Nixon was a means to wage war against Blacks and activists?
  5. Do you think that this allegation is valid? Why or why not?
  6. Would it then mean that if the Vietnam War had not existed, or if Nixon did not have biases against Blacks and activists, then Nixon’s “War on Drugs” would not have merit?

Drug trafficking is one of the most resilient and lucrative industries in the world, with estimated revenues of $300 billion a year. Despite the tens of billions of dollars that governments spend every year trying to disrupt them, drug cartels have shown tremendous ingenuity, adaptability, and entrepreneurship to satisfy over a quarter billion customers worldwide. Tom Wainwright will use insights from classical economics and modern business theory to explain how drug cartels work, why they’re thriving, and how the illicit business could be defeated by the laws of economics—that is, by recognizing the futility of prohibition.
