If the person was in a battle formation hundreds of yards away from the cannon when their head got blown off then how can you compare the two incidents as being similar or the same when they were completely separate circumstances?

Letting an epidemic of poison spread through your society is more closely analogous to sticking your head in a cannon and firing it. In my opinion, it is virtually guaranteed to cause a collapse.

I say the same thing to you...go look at the cleaning supplies under your kitchen sink, or wherever it is that you keep your cleaning supplies, and tell me that there aren't poisonous items amongst them.

So by your illustration you would rather have a filthy, dirty kitchen than trust yourself as a rational human being who is able to safely handle poisonous cleaning products.

Got it.

It already has spread through society. I can get pot in 15 minutes. I could probably get the real bad stuff (crack, heroin, or meth) in two hours, and I don't even have to go to Detroit or Ypsi to get two of them.

Drugs are bad. The war on some drugs is worse. We are increasingly giving up more freedoms and giving more powers to government, especially the feds in the name of the war on drugs. Asset forfeitures without convictions came from the WoD. The unPatriot Act (judge shopping and sneak and peak) was based on a Clinton proposal to combat the WoD. Debt increases in corrections budgets because of drug crimes. Sudafed controls for those with allergies.
