It's not in the best interests of the controllers of the America government, they are on top of the food chain of the illegal drug business, they will never give up all that money to fund their dark projects. Not to mention loose a great source of slave labor to their "for profit" prison system but mostly the will not like to loose one powerful tool that sustains the chaos and fear they must have to systematically and deftly lead us into slavery.
