Non sequitor. I don't want to be attacked by drunks either. In both cases government can and should punish the attackers.

You cannot compare the effects of a drunk to those of a crack-crazed guy.

"You cannot compare the effects of a drunk to those of a crack-crazed guy."

Let's see, there are about 40,000 deaths annually from alcohol related incidents. Contrast that with the deaths attributed to cocaine, around 3000 per year, and you're right -- the comparison is VERY weak.

You're right. Alcoholics do far more damage to this country than do coke lovers. There are thousands more folks driving under the influence of alcohol than under the influence of cocaine. Yet this country made a decision that the lives destroyed by alcohol were not worth the cost of keeping it illegal.
