    If that is true then I am glad I do not live in Atlanta.

    We'd never do it, since we think the lessons of history are for others, but that would be the best approach.

    Or maybe you are not a kid who wants meth, so you don't know how easy it is to get! And if you can't get it you can always Google how to make it. Good times.

    There were people like you when I was in High School, too. The clueless teachers and PTA soccer moms who had no idea that their kid could get any drug he or she wanted right at school. How did little Johnny get coke? From the dude two lockers down, that's how. Yes, shocking indeed. Meth was not around when I was growing up (although I'm sure it had been invented). But parents were stunned to hear how many kids smoked weed and did coke. I guess it's tough to see with your head up your ass.

    We could do another proxy war. Surely we could find a group to use.

    Your right, it will happen anyway!!! Lets legalize murder, rape, and everyother crime that is broken!

    It may be easy in some instances, but I assure you the number of zombies would increase dramatically if it were legalized. Anyway, we can agree to disagree. I am of mind that some drugs should be legalized, and if schools would get more strict and search lockers radomly, then there would be less instances of what you refer.

    Re: Venezuela 'fuelling drugs trade'

    Here is why I am hesitant to ever call for Meth legalization.

    Meth Usage

    Significant numbers of American youth engage in heavy meth use and these numbers continue to increase. Causing damage to property and causing injury to themselves are among the most common problems associated with meth use. Tolerance for meth can develop with chronic use. In an effort to intensify the desired effects, users will take higher doses more frequently. In many cases, abusers go without food and sleep while indulging in a form of binging known as a “run,” injecting as much as a gram every two to three hours over a several day period. This will continue until the user runs out of the drug or is too disoriented to continue. Chronic meth abuse can result in inflammation of the heart lining as well as progressive social and occupational deterioration. Psychotic symptoms can sometimes persist for months or years after use has ceased (drug info).
    It is already on the increase among youth, and anything that causes people to become psychotic, really should not be legalized.

    Sorry for that. I was pulled into another direction by those advocating simply legalizing all drugs to end such problems. Now, why do you think that Venezuela is being framed, or unjustly blamed for bringing or supporting drug traffic into the U.S.?

    colombia, the source of the drugs is being held harmless

    the USA, the destination, due to the demand for the drug is complaining

    and venezuela should be held culpable for the drug problem in what way?

    Did you read the article? Colombian drug groups are finding safe haven in Venezuela as the U.S. and Colombian authorities put pressure on them.

    "If illegal armed groups continue to find safe haven in Venezuela and receive support from Venezuela, the permissive atmosphere and lack of co-operation will likely adversely affect the security gains made in Colombia since 2000," the report said.

    According to researchers who prepared the report, visiting both Venezuela and Colombia earlier this year, Venezuelan officials were bribed to facilitate Colombian cocaine shipments.
