What evidence do you have to suggest we will have less fatal drug usage, less life destroying drug usage, by simply legalizing it?Logic requires us to look at the actual evidence and act according to it. Not ignore the evidence in order to pursue an irrational goal.
Again, not the goal nor the point on the war on drugs.The evidence is that drugs will never be defeated. They have existed for far longer than any society on the planet, and will outlast any existing society today.
Let's look at things logically.
Assuming it was legalized? Well, if we legalized it as you said, Tucker, the 32 year old wouldnt have to go out of her way to destroy her life - she can simply go to her local shop instead.If someone is willing to break the law to sell drugs to a 32 year old, what is the impetus that would prevent them from dealing them to an 8 year old? I doubt morality comes into play.
Its illogical.If the goal is prevention, then actually doing things that have a chance of succeeding is a better approach than wasting mountains of resources on a failed program.
