Can you imagine how unproductive much of our citizenry would become if they could take drugs at will, and companies could no longer screen for them when hiring?
"Hey, Hal, what'd you do this weekend?"
"Not much. Shot heroine on Saturday night, so I was pretty catatonic all day Sunday. Totally missed work on Monday, dude."

Since he missed Monday and was sitting home all day so he went ahead and got high again. Which screwed him over on going to work Tuesday too. That pissed his boss off who suspends him for a few days. So he decides to get high again since he is upset about the suspension. Ultimately leads to him getting fired. Which luckily for him he can fall back on our welfare system till he gets back on his feet. Which could take a while when you have a track record of poor attendance at your previous job and your piss is dirty. And in the job interview your teeth are rotting out of your head and your potentially new boss is watching your cold sweats shakes as you try to think of an answer. In hindsight offering to suck his dick for $20 probably wasnt helpful either. After a long while with this the guy will likely enroll in some type of rehab at the tax payers expense to help him clean up and get off the heroin. During that time he decides he should probably sue the manufacturer who is legally selling it for ruining his life draining our tax money and wasting a courts time. he will likely win because we always hold others accountable here in AMerica for our own failures. With that money he will "celebrate" and the cycle will start again.
Its not a popular message...but if you are going to combat certain groups, you have to play on their terms. You have to be ruthless, brutal, merciless. Frankly...most people dont have the stomach to accept the fact, let alone to engage.
The cartels are using American money to run amok down there.
If we legalized the drugs they're making their money on, they would either have to go legit or get out of the game.
Given an excluded middle choice between an uptick in pothead basement dwellers and an uptick in Mexican drug cartels, I'm gonna go with the pothead in the basement.
Weshouldn't be spending our tax money to subsidize the profits of the drug cartels. imho.
I may be wrong.
