Drugs as Weapons Against Us presents evidence that the CIA manipulated musicians and activists to promote illegal drugs for social control, particularly targeting individuals in the Civil Rights and anti-war movements. Evidence further supports that intelligence agents murdered some of these musicians and activists when they started sobering up and stopped promoting drugs. Targeted musicians and activists included Tupac Shakur, Kurt Cobain, John Lennon and Jimi Hendrix, as well the anti-war SDS and The Black Panthers. The long history of drug trafficking includes British and American wars over international drug-producing regions. Wealthy American families who enriched themselves on the drug trade became entrenched in US Intelligence. The CIA and Pentagon influenced the launch of America's longest wars in the top opium-producing poppy field regions of Vietnam and Afghanistan. The CIA also ran covert operations to control cocaine-producing regions in Central and South America.
