Let me say this, I honestly don’t like drugs and have no understanding as to why people would volunteer to become drug dependent.

Having said that, many people who are in prison are there over a minor drug conviction, a couple of ounces of pot.

If regulation worked for booze, because there are no massive battles with rum runners anymore, the principle should work for drugs as well. Allow the pharmaceuticals to produce safe drugs that people can consume safely and minimal addictiveness and end the war on drugs.

It’s either that or we will end with a police state.

I don’t think you know much about the PHARMA industry, do you. Or the abuse of pharma drugs?

a drug addict's needs are insatiable.....give them some, they want more....its the nature of the beast.....

and most people IMO are in jail not because they have a little weed...they're there because of the lying, cheating, stealing, prostituting and striping they do to afford their drugs....

its a difficult problem and you can believe that its never going to just go away because again, IMO, too many Americans are making big bucks from the trade and looking "away"....

what if people suddenly became ethical and moral?...what if people turned to God?...all problems solved.

A police state is just what they are working towards, the agenda behind the curtain, the source of endless cash for the corrupt.
