NO! NO! NO!!!! DAMNIT!! The problem is not the price, or the money flow. Its not Mexico, its not the cartels is the use of the sh!t in the first place. Even if they made the damn stuff free, our drug problem would only increase. Anybody who's for leagalization has their head completely up their butt.
i guess it depends on what you mean by “our drug problem”>
my drug problem is the gangs and violence. if someone wants to take “free” drugs and ruin their life, why is that “our drug problem”, thats their problem and welcome to it.
we should get the gangs and crime out of drugs, let those who are stupid enough to take drugs wreck themselves, but at least not ruing the rest of society.
plus, i am not convinced making them legal will do much to increase drug use. anyone who wants drugs can get them now cant they?
And you have thousands of people who are spending the rest of their lives in prison, being violently abused, and becoming violent themselves, because they were caught with an ounce of marijuana in their pocket.
Makes sense to me.
Al Capone would've been a small time Brooklyn hood, BUT, thanks to "I know what's best for you..." DEMOCRATS, he bought and ran Chicago, because of the Federal price supports that Prohibition provided.
It's a sad fact of life, that some people are gonna get stoned. Can't stop it, can't control it, can't convince 'em otherwise.
Prohibition has always been the Great Societal Cureall. If we just get rid of booze, guns, drugs, DDT, Alare, Carbon Dioxide, corporations, private income, then the whole world will be rainbows and unicorns with piles of Skittles every 20 feet...
The War on Drugs has trashed the Constitution, with the WoD being used to justify 90% of the legal violations. Search and seizure, RICO laws, confiscation of property, limits on how much cash you can possess, SWAT teams, thousands slaughtered by an out of control policing system. AND, we are LOSING!
Can you honestly justify ANY of this?
