Or, in the case of Libertarian Alaskan senator Mike Gravel, bring it up at the '08 debates, and while the audience will be too polite to laugh, there will be the palpable murmur of "Who let the hippie in? "

This is one of the key problems in comparing legalization to Prohibition--Most of the population WANTED Prohibition to be repealed. Especially the rich people who could do something about it.

(But why are we discussing this anyway, the pretentious-nut OP already threw his tantrum and left after we weren't taking it as seriously as he wanted us to.)

World War Bath Salt. The sequel to World War Z.

The world as we know it is in chaos. The homeless are chasing people down and devouring their flesh. Only the Avatar, master of all 4 drugs can stop them.


I would watch that!

Someone struggling with addiction needs counseling and possibly medication, prison will only ruin their lives further for many reasons.


I am of a split opinion when it comes to drugs. Minor things, like pot, I would be okay with legalizing and taxing.

Hard drugs: the users should be medically treated and the dealers should be executed. No second chances.

I agree, I would't go so far as to say the legalize harder drugs, but prison does little to help those addicted to them. As for dealers, I have little sympathy for them.

I hear stories about how Drug addict spent years in prison like 5 to 20 years.. once they come home, first thing they go buy is Drugs! Friend of mine was telling me this drug addict guy just got home from prison and he was renting in this house up in Kansas city, it was shitty looking house and turned out the guy got bitten by 6 brown spider, and got bitten by snake as well! The reason he manage to stay in bed is because he was high all this time...

So this guy took his father to hospital.. and filed a complain about that house full of brown spider and snakes! XD

I would read this all and still come to the same conclusion i dont support the strict structure of laws for "drugs" vs medication BUT and this a HUGE BUT PEOPLE CAN BE REALLY STUPID
life is what you make of it and if you make a dangerous substance your world you wont live long for the most part or you may suffer mental physical or emotional or any/all three
this is basically a old cliche live by the sword die by the sword or basically if you live how you want you die how you want most times
People do not always wish to be educated in fact the people answering this forum at all are more likely the small % that(represent) may even care to have a reasonable discussion vs readily wielding a ban hammer to protect the dumb masses from themselves
quote from mib applies to many things in my book
Edwards: Why the big secret? People are smart. They can handle it.
Kay: A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it. Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on this planet. Imagine what you'll know tomorrow.
saying means to me you can educate or reason with one person at a time but get them together and you got "issues"

I have too strong of a bias against drugs, so I can't agree.

Conspiracy theory alert on this post, I dont believe in most of them but this one kinda makes sense.

Statistics reveal that the United States holds 25% of the world’s prison population, but only 5% of the world's people.

From less than 300,000 inmates in 1972, the jail population grew to 2 million by the year 2000. In 1990 it was one million. Ten years ago there were only five private prisons in the country, with a population of 2,000 inmates; now, there are 100, with 62,000 inmates. It is expected that by the coming decade, the number will hit 360,000, according to reports.

What has happened over the last 10 years? Why are there so many prisoners?

"The private contracting of prisoners for work fosters incentives to lock people up. Prisons depend on this income. Corporate stockholders who make money off prisoners...

I dont know how much weight I would put in this theory but it does kinda make sense if you have the majority of the people in prisons for drug related charges.

Soft drugs should be legalized and regulated. Selling them outside the law should be illegal in the same way selling bootleg alcohol or tobacco is.

Hard drugs should remain illegal, and the penalties for selling/producing them should be harsh. It's hard to make a serious argument that the production/sale of drugs like meth, crack and heroin should be legal. Those drugs destroy lives and communities. Profiting from them is immoral and should be punished.

That being said minor possession of those drugs should be decriminalized and treated as a healthcare issue more than a legal one. I think specialized drug courts and addiction treatment are the solution, blindly putting addicts in prison with mandatory sentences is not.

Personal freedom is wonderful and should be respected as much as possible. But the needs of the community and civilization have to come first. There needs to be balance between the two and that means we all have to give some things up for the greater good.

No, not all. Near as I'm concerned, especially NOT Crocodile. Christ, I wish no one figured out how to make it. It rots flesh. Yikes. For the record, all those legal drugs with scary side effects don't sit well with me, either.


Actually, desomorphine (aka crocodil) itself is not what is causing the damage. It's people who have no idea what they are doing incorrectly manufacturing the drug. The chemical itself is just like any other opiate.

I agree completely that drugs should be legal across the board. There is absolutely no logical reason for prohibition, and I challenge anyone to try to come up with one. I can go on for pages and pages about the devastation caused by prohibition. In reality, our 'war on drugs' is nothing more than a war on people. It's disgusting and has gone on for far too long...

I think a good chunk of drugs should be legalized but not crack, herion, or crystal meth
