Behind George Soros’s interest in drugs

By: V4 Agency

Over the years, the US stock market speculator has exerted significant efforts, including spending large sums of money, to achieve his goal of legalising certain illicit substances. French political analyst and writer Pierre-Antoine Plaquevent seeks to reveal in his book what interests could underlie the aspirations of George Soros and his allies.

In 2010, George Soros published an opinion piece  with the title “Why I Support Legal Marijuana” in The Wall Street Journal. The article was penned in the year when California was voting on legalising cannabis.  

At the time, George Soros argued that existing regulations were doing more harm than good. In his view, the criminalisation of marijuana did not prevent pot from becoming the most widely used illegal substance in the US. Soros tried bolstering his argument with figures, pointing out that roughly 750,000 arrests were made each year for possession of small amounts of marijuana, which represents more than 40 per cent of all drug arrests. Soros wanted a successful outcome for the 2010 California vote so badly, that he spent one million dollars on the pro-cannabis campaign.

Forbes financial magazine published a lengthy article on the influence of Soros’s empire on drug policy.

Since 1994, his Open Society Foundations (OSF) have spent nearly 200 million dollars to achieve drug reforms. The largest recipient of that amount was an organisation called Drug Policy Alliance. Ethan Nadelmann, the NGO’s chairman, proudly acknowledged that they worked alongside Soros for decades, who, in his opinion, has played a “historical role” in drug reforms. Drug Policy Alliance continues to enjoy Soros’s generous financial support, having received just over 80 thousand dollars in 2019.

Soros’s son, Alexander Soros is also interested in the drug issue. In 2019, he spoke at the second Paris Peace Forum about the OSF’s efforts.

“The Open Society Foundations has long contributed to the protection of drug addicts. We know that there is a direct link between them and the most democratic societies, where these most vulnerable people tend to receive the most humane treatment,” the heir to the empire said.

What can the motivations behind the Soros clan’s ambitions be?

French political analyst Pierre-Antoine Plaquevent, the author of the book Soros and the Open Society, the Metapolitics of Globalism (Soros et la societe ouverte, metapolitique du globalisme) believes there are underlying business reasons.

“The first objective is economic – this is the most lucrative sector next to human trafficking. Then comes social control, with legalisation, generalisation and drug consumption, a population that is no longer able to defend itself is created. This results in a general social acceptance that is much greater than in what Soros calls ‘closed societies’ – which still maintain geopolitical and psychological defence capabilities,” the French analyst said.
