Texaggie, I am going to try to make this as I can, somebody is stoned, he is affected, his family maybe, maybe a few folks he work with.
I have a nuke and do something stupid with it, who is affected, I am, my family and depending on where I live maybe a few tens or hundred thousand of my neighbors.
YOUR freedoms end where I begin, noise, smoke, trees overhanging a shared fence, as long as a person is not infringing on someone else how is it anyone's business whether he gets high, or if living in the middle of nowhere has a particle accelerator in his basement?
how is it anyone's business whether he gets high,
If that state/township/community agrees that his drug of choice is too much of a threat, it's theirs. If he wants to do that drug, don't do it in a city that prohibits it.
You say, "when someone gets stoned" look, we can all agree pot is less harmfull than alcohol, and it's idiotic and hypocritical to outlaw it. But for hard drugs, they are a threat.
I advocate in court for abused children. And I will tell you that 99.9% of the cases I see are caused by drug usage. HARD drug usage. Crystal Meth, crack, heroin. These drugs are just simply impossible to do responsibly. The very act of doing them at all is irresponsible. And thanks to laws against them, we can get these kids out of these abusive parents homes quite easily.
