We all took Health class many years. The people that don't want to suffer the consequences of drugs will not do it. The people without willpower and backbone have been using it as much as they want illegally anyway. Only difference probably is that the people that don't do drugs only because it is illegal and would start to do it so if it was legal --> Slight-Moderate increased percentages of accidents, secondhand smoking, drug-related deaths like murder/suicide/overdose/automobile accidents/etc due to SOME of those people. And so therefore a proportional increase of our tax money going into the hospitals to save the overdosing druggie's life and the lives of the bystanders that had to pay the consequences for the druggie's bad choices. I remember a forum on CR a while ago asking if people here did drugs. The majority of the answerers said "Yes."

Either way, I would never do drugs. My pride wouldn't let me "have to need" something that I don't need and it would just not only tarnish my name but my family too. Plus the aftermath of drugs are pretty nasty.

Black market main source of funding would crumble. Selling would be monitored like alcohol one of the worse legal drugs there is and arguably way less harmful than several class a substances like marijuana. NO more idiots selling shit to our kids to get them hooked, if an adult willingly chooses to take a drug and get addicted its thier problem. If the government controls the prices of these substances they could kill any lucrative profit. Recreational substances are always going to be around always have been always will be. The war on drugs is a failure and always will be. Overall, education is where the war on drugs should be not full out prohibition and arresting the idiots who got sucked into a world they knew nothing about.

Why does almost everyone think all these horror stories will happen. I am anti drugs but i know one fact. People that do them get them regardless if they are illegal or not. The only difference right now is its the criminals who profit from it right now. It is a giant sink hole for tax dollars to fight gangs since they are never to go away and people arent going to stop buying from them just because its illegal.

Legalize recreational drugs and have the people profit instead of the gangs. Honestly people are very lenient on tobacco yet it doesnt do anything to help society except be a source of income and a money drain for health problems. You cant ban tobacco because people with do it regardless. Alcohol atleast as few more uses then to drink.

If it was legalised in the same way as in Amsterdam then it would make Starbucks much more interesting but at the same time make my trip to Amsterdam later this year a bit pointless. It really depends on what level of drugs your on about any way if it was just stuff like weed then is wouldn't be bad and I wouldn't complain but anything stronger would cause problems

I think there's a limit of what we should, and shouldn't legalize.

Weed? Go for it. Apply it with the same laws with alchohal consumption, and make sure nobody's driving blazed.
You've got no major risk with it, other then that it's a hallucinagen. But, honestly, it helps. It cures nausea, and there's no risk of overdosing, unless you can consume 2/3s of your body weight worth of it in 15 minutes.

Meth? Same thing. It's already floating around, with the amount of people who fake having ADD, so who cares? Just don't OD, or else you'll have a pretty bad experience with a stomach pump or charcoal pills.

But, when it comes to other things, I'm completely against legalization.

Lsd? That stuff will mess you up. First time I tried it, i swear to god, i saw, and FELT a lion. Completely serious. but I'm not even talking about how much it'll trip you out. I'm talking what it does to your head. Did you know that the first time you consume LSD, from then on you are legally mentally retarded? It's true.
Pcp's the same thing too. It messes with your head. Rather then messing with your senses though, and making you think you see/feel stuff, it messes with your sense of reality. I've known kids who've cut oopen their arms, thinking their veins were blue snakes in their skin.

So, i guess I'm for legalization, but only for specific things.

Hell no. Even if they were legalized, the drugs will still kill you =.= Anyways, we have more than enough problems already.

Chaos.
Also, they would totally tax that shizz. So you would probably get it cheaper by drug dealing than if it were legalized (:
