Baseless hysteria - we don't encounter alcohol addicts anywhere near that often.
No, it isnt.
Is what has happened to our teenagers through promiscuity (encouraged by your buddies the 1960s radicals) with higher STDs, higher pregnancy, higher abortion, higher suicide, baseless hysteria? No. Its fact.
Is higher drug addiction in any area that enables recreational drug usage baseless hysteria? No. Its fact.
Is the destruction to individual lives and to the lives of families that results when someone becomes addicted to drugs baseless hysteria? No. Its fact.
What does any of that have to do with the prevalence of drug addicts slouched against the walls?
And how does drug addiction "enable" recreational drug usage?

Are you kidding me?
Do you really have so much difficulty with basic reading comprehension? How could you so completely switch my premise and conclusion? Were you joking?
Legalizing drugs increases the prevalence of drugs.
Legalizing drugs culturally condones recreational drug usage.
The increased prevalence and cultural condoning of recreational drug usage increases recreational drug usage in a society.
Increased recreational drug usage in a society increases the percentage of citizens who become addicted to drugs.
If you have trouble following that logic, which is the logic I’ve been using to lead you out of your darkness, then there’s no way you can intelligently engage in this conversation. If you are a drug user, you are defeating your own argument that legalizing drugs is no big deal.
