That's why the government needs to be in charge of it rather than private corporation s. I believe it was in Switzerland where the government set up free methadone clinics across the country in order to give people a safe place to shoot up, and as a result of people having access without cost, the violent, drug-related crimes sharply decreased after that.

I'm of the opinion that keeping drugs illegal does more harm than good. It doesn't make sense to put someone in prison because they ingested something and didn't harm anyone else. Someone struggling with addiction needs counseling and possibly medication, prison will only ruin their lives further for many reasons.

Pretty soon I'll be starting an internship where I'll be giving therapy to people coming through the criminal justice system who are dealing with substance abuse issues. I'm sure I'll be seeing first hand how the system is doing them just as much harm as the drugs they've been using.

There will always be people who want to use drugs, keeping them illegal just contributes to an increase in crime, crowding of prisons with non-violent offenders and ruining the lives of those with addictions. People who truly wish to stop using drugs will seek out the help they need. Those who don't will unfortunately have to deal with the consequences, it's not the governments job to be our parents and discipline us for using harmful substances.


I understand what you saying.. I never understood why Cigarette and Alcohol not yet ban (Illegal). People that smoke Cigarette cause harm those around them, Those that don't smoke are known as second hand smoker! Even non-smoker have same health problem as smoker do, they have tar in their lung! Isn't that not bull####? Smoking doesn't even make sense, just to suck on it and blow smoke.. Reason Teenager smoke them is to look cool, what so cool about it! You get bad breathe, yellow teeth and get Lung Cancer later in life!! People call them Cancer stick. They say that Cigarette help them to relax! Whatever there lot of thing they can do in healthy way to get relaxing. Don't need to smoke to get that.

Alcohol, I grew up watching my Father getting drunk every single day, he doesn't have job while my Mother had to get three job to support us (six of us). He doesn't remember 99% of the time, he beat on us, forget our birthday.. Doesn't even get us Christmas present. He asked me where I hide my money when I was seven year old, I told him where it is and next day he stole them so he can afford to buy some more Alcohol!! He get mad when I try to help him quit drinking.. He told me its what he joy, its what he like.. I was thinking you enjoy beating on your children? I know not many people are this bad when they drink, but I see Alcohol to my father like Heroin, Because he just sit there all day, when he finished drinking one beer he open another one. Only time he doesn't drink is when he finally fallen asleep.

One time he sober up and asked me who I was, I was 14 at that time, he thought I was still 9 year old kid, so he went back to drinking and recogize me! -_-;

I asked other people (those that drink Alcohol) Why they drink them, what so special about it, They simply told me they get high off of it! The word "High"

Now what the different between that and Illegal drugs? Those who got no self-control got no right to have them, they need to be montior and kept under control. If they don't ban Cigarette and Alcohol than might as well legalize all Drugs since its same thing.. But keep them under control.. Those that have extreme pain have the right to take pain killer to ease their pain.. But make sure they're not overdosing on them.

Believe me or not, if you legalize all those drugs.. Most percentage of the people won't even care to take them, will reduce the crime. Even if they do, they will be montior and be on them safety.

It won't matter if they stay banned because people will get them anyway, also they'll ending up dying because they had to hide from public eye to do them in order to not go to prison or get illegal drugs taken away from them. So that why I think we should legalize them all so people's love one won't die on their watch or other that montioring them.

I highly doubt I'll take illegal drugs heck I don't even do weed.. I also don't drink or smoke.. Only thing I drink is Diet soda

I better stop here haha, I didn't even read what I just wrote! =0

They tried banning alcohol. The Prohibition failed miserably. All that came about was bootlegging and the golden years of old-school mafia. A lot like how the crack-down on drugs isn't working well and fuels cartels and whatnot.

I think it all comes down to weighing the cost of prohibition, the likelihood and magnitude of harm, the feasibility of alternative actions, the likelihood and magnitude of the benefit, and the threat of future consequences.

The problem is that this requires an objective analysis of drugs as substances, not simply as "evil drugs." And many won't even consider this. I haven't the faintest clue why. They also fail to consider the effect of prohibition on underground markets and on the additional harm caused by unregulated manufacture. I still remember being a naive schoolkid who was learning about how awful all those drugs were when I was 8 years old. I ended up trying almost every drug you can think of and I'm still alive and doing fairly well. In fact, I don't think I would be who I am today if I didn't go through those eye-opening experiences.

Telling someone that "this is bad" and "that is good" doesn't seem to work well. You have to give them reasons. I'm not saying all drugs are good, but they all need an objective analysis rather than demonization.

It's my opinion that drugs should all be labeled the same way. There needs to be a database of ingredients, common and uncommon side effects, warnings and dosages, etc.

I don't necessarily think they should all be legal, but it seems that a lot of the prohibition costs are not worth the type and magnitude of harm prevented. How easy they are to get should certainly be regulated if there is a high potential for abuse and harm.


Yea, I remember in sixth grade, a DEA or Police Officer came in the class and lecture about the danger of the drugs and show us video of a guy that snort cocaine and later on he ending up with no nose it was gross haha. It even show video of a guy heart beating in werid way, it was about Weed.. Also I remember the Officer was saying if you smoke Weed you'll drive 5 mile an hour and it'll seem like you're going 100 mile an hour! HAHA.

After all that warning, I thought from there noone does drug anymore after all the problem in 1980 era.. Than later on I saw someone doing drugs I was like wtf, you must have skip school day about Drugs. Weird thing is when I see Drug Addict, I felt fear in my heart.. Because, was thinking why take something that make you look like shit and dangerous haha.

I found out that my Cousin was doing Heroin so I asked him ton of question.. He told me that being on Heroin make you don't give a F*** and if you see incoming car and you have baby in your hand, you'll just throw the baby at the car without feeling anything!

I was wondering is that the reason why Criminal take Heroin is to get rid of their morals? So they can do illegal thing in order to get paid.. Since they cannot get job in real world? Heh.

Funny thing is you'll learn lot from Drug addicts more than you do from the first day you learn from the Officer in Dare Program.

Look at illegal drugs its still coming.. am surpised they haven't legalized yet. after keep hearing that Law enforcement are losing in Drug War. Its costing us Tax payer lot of money.

That probably why billionaire like Bill Gates doesn't fund the Drug War, due to thinking it won't work.

Law enforcement often underestimates the power and influence of the drug manufacturers. The underground organizations are huge and include very powerful groups such as the Mexican cartels, Japanese yakuza, Chinese triads, and lots of other gangs as well as numerous small, independent backyard manufacturers.

There's no good way to uproot them all at the moment. They are simply too big, widespread, established, and powerful. It's like trying to do pest control in your garden with a pair of tweezers. It's too much.

If the goal is, indeed, to prevent or reduce harm caused by drugs, there are other ways.

In my graduating class, 5 of my classmates died of heroin overdose. Imagine how much bigger that number would be if it was legalized.

Maybe, Maybe not, if it was legalized they probably stay alive.. Due to not taking as much as they were during illegal time. They may have their love one watching them making sure they don't over dose on them.

What I'm saying is they hide from people that care about them, because they're scared that they will call police on them to get it taken away or sent them to Rehab.

By the way my cousin (who happen to be Meth and Heroin addict) told me that Rehab is the place for him to make more friends with Drug addict and once they get out, they'll celebrate by using drugs.. They see Rehab a place to make more drug addict friends and make more connection with Drug dealers! >.< That suck :(.

He been in rehab like 9 time!!! My Uncle got broke and is in despair... gave up on his two son due to their drug habits. He told me if he could go back in time, he would never spend a dime on them getting to rehab, because its a joke!

Sounds like a conspiracy theory. However, it was the lizard men who created it to get rid of African Americans.
