If you're not suffering from "my weakness" then why do you think it is a wonderful idea to make drugs available to everybody? Those of us who grew up with values do not approve of drugs for everybody, prostitution, etc. Making the vices illegal makes people go against their conscience to indulge which means it is never as enjoyable as it would be if they were not breaking the law. Plus being arrested is a big deterrent for reasonable people. Why would you want to live in a society that approves of this stuff? We have enough problems as a society without adding things that are tickets to instant deterioration.
Sorry, I hold the moral highground on this issue.
I have values too. Alcohol legalization has made fools out of those who support the "war on drugs". Alcohol is THE major drug problem we have in this country. It affects directly and indirectly millions more people than crack,etc. But we do nothing about making alcohol illegal. We tried that, it didn't work to keep people from abusing it or becomiming dependent on it. Moreover it created an underground of crime. There are many places where drugs are legal, but laws are enforced strictly for minors or for behaviors that are criminal of those under the influence. the example I have cited is that Amsterdam is a lot safer than Los Angeles or Atlanta and the use and/or abuse of drugs is the same, with much more opportunities for rehab due to not wasting money on policing drugs. We have REALLY gone off the deep end with filling our prisons with people who are no threat to society for relatively minor drug offenses, yet have out of proportionly long sentences.
Drug abuse and dependence requires treatment options that are sorely lacking because our taxes are spent foolishly on an unwinnable"war on drugs." Criminal behavior should be punished, but smoking marijuana is a personal moral and spiritual problem best left to spiritual, medical intervention.
