Libertarian Utopians are stupid.
They want all drugs legal for all people, right? Kids too, since to liberdopians they are just little adults. No age of consent is a retarded idea.
They want all drugs legal for all people, right?
No. They want marijuana legalized for the same people who are legal to drink alcohol. Other drugs can be dealt with in ways that are specific to the harm they cause.
A 2011 report titled the Global Commission on Drug Policy was formulated by, among others, former Chairman of the Federal Reserve Paul Volcker, Ronald Reagan’s Secretary of State George Shultz, former President of Mexico Ernesto Zedillo, and former Brazilian President Fernando Henrique Cardoso. Below are some of their recommendations and conclusions:
“The global war on drugs has failed ... Vast expenditures on criminalization and repressive measures directed at producers, traffickers and consumers of illegal drugs have clearly failed to effectively curtail supply or consumption.”
Apparent victories in eliminating one source or trafficking organization are negated almost instantly by the emergence of other sources and traffickers.
End the criminalization, marginalization and stigmatization of people who use drugs but who do no harm to others. Challenge rather than reinforce common misconceptions about drug markets, drug use and drug dependence.
Encourage experimentation by governments with models of legal regulation of drugs to undermine the power of organized crime and safeguard the health and security of their citizens.
The war on drugs is immoral and ineffective. The meta-analysis of researchers and scholars leave us with one conclusion: legalization is the only viable solution.
