Yes we should. Our prisons would empty so we can stop building and staffing them, we can get rid of the DEA and stop militarizing our local police, and the "rapists and murders" portion of the illegal immigrants would greatly decrease (since most of them are connected to the drug cartels). Instead of a large percentage of our young men sitting in jail cells then being radioactive in the job market they might become productive members of society, which would help us cover the deficit spending we're doing right now.

-sorry, that was uncalled for...




Yeah, we should legalize all drugs and make them easily accessible for the public. Most of us don't even understand the full gravity of drug issues, so thrusting these problems into everyone's faces for all to see without a place to run away to would at least get people to realize something needs to be done.

-and, who knows, maybe eventually society will reach a point where the usage of certain drugs becomes a daily thing, where everyone uses them responsible, or something... but that's probably being too optimistic

Fuck no.
Have you actually seen someone on meth? It's disturbing.

No, but we shouldn't punish people for using them. If you want to abuse harmful substances that's your problem and you'll deal with the consequences. Putting users through the criminal justice system usually does more harm than good for them. As for dealers, I have little sympathy for them.

I don't think anybody wants to ingest synthetic weed ^__^"" It's cheap and we've had some bad incidents. So it would be good if people could get the "real weed" to be legal...

By the way, people on meth are attractive. They seem to be happy all the time. xDD

only marijuana. Where I live isn't even a medical state which is a total joke because veterans and other people can't get the medication they need. legalize or don't legalize it, it will always be legal in my house

We've mentioned addiction, but what about the other health effects that these drugs do to the body?

cigarettes are legal but prolonged use leads to a higher chance for lung cancer and can result in emphysema.

alcohol addiction can result in cirrhosis of the liver.

legal drugs aren't without their risks. Plenty of children are born with addictions to drugs given to the mother during pregnancy.

A possibility of legalization is the legitimization of drug dealers and cartels as businesses. This is mere conjecture on my part.
When all of these now illegal drugs are made legal, who will be in the best position to sell them? The current producers. There will of course be investigations into cartel affiliations, but these are unlikely to catch every one of them. An added effect of this will do a complete 180 to the reputations of drug dealers. (Yes, it will not be over night) This will extend to the cartels giving them the image of a business simply supplying a product that is in demand.

I don't think Cartels are gonna get much out of the legalization of drugs, keep in mind there are gonna be Chemical engineers who are gonna make things like Cannabis and Coke much better, hell the owners of cannabis shops aren't these Cartel members

Yes! All drugs should be legalized by local, state, and federal government. I'm a firm believer in free enterprise.

I could care less, as long as no one forces me to get high. If other people want to snort cocaine or shoot heroin, then why should I care? not my problem certain people want to spend hundreds of dollars just to get intoxicated. Also, it's their funeral if they want a speedball overdose or something. Maybe some of you guys are interested in taking drugs, but I'm not.
