    I don't do drugs on a daily basis but I do weekly. Actually, I mix drugs most weekends.

    Jack Daniels with that horrible drug Alcohol mixed with Coke with that horrible drug Caffine.

    I swear, its amazing that with probably almost weekly inhaling of drugs since I've turned 21 that my penis isn't just one giant pussing pile of ooze

    Probably. I was just saying.


    Nor is it the right of the United States Government to determine what we can or can't put in our bodies if you want to go technical, since its no where deliniated as such in the Constitution that should be a state issue.
    Says who? Substances as lethal and as addictive as drugs should all be outlawed and yes i believe that is the right of the government to protect us, whether you like it or not. I think if we legalized drugs it would shatter us as a nation and as a society the way drugs are already doing.

    Yeah, trying to say "well other places in the world do it!" isn't an argument for what's correct, simply what's possible. I'm frankly estatic we don't do some things like the majority of europe does them.
    All im telling you is no other country in the world does it because quiet frank what you propose is retarded.


    He did tell you, he also provided you with historical evidence, both of which you ignored.
    What has this got to do with what you quoted?

    If they were legalized, regulated, and made available similar to how hard alcohol would be then there would be little to no competition.
    Do you have evidence of this, that cartels wont go off and try and achieve a better yield by adding even crappier substances to there mix to lower the cost?

    Legitiamte companies would be attempting to sell these things, much like alcohol was done. These would have to be up to a federally regulated standard, sold in a safe environment of a shop, and are completely legal to have. The free market would dictate a reasonable price, again much like alcohol.
    Your talking about drugs, here. I dont think you realize how badly they can destroy you and how badly you can get addicted to them even the first time around. Alcohol, bad foods and cigarettes are all legal because they are ok until a certain point. Drugs (exception class C) are all bad for you, in the extreme, regulated, or not. They are bad for you.

    At best the cartel's could try to undercut the competition by making even CHEAPER drugs than the cheapest sold legally, but the amount they'd have to cut down the price to over come the benefits of:

    1. Legal to buy
    2. Legal to have
    3. Safe location to buy
    4. Higher standard of production / less chance for extra nefarious substances included
    Okay because point 2 is distinguishable between cartel drugs and those obtained on the shop, and point 4 is totally irrelevant to pot heads (including the ones the government - since it has legalized drugs - are now spawning like rabbits), and point 3 is hardly much of a valid point.


    Even currently look now with alcohol. Sure, in theory, you could still have people making boot legged alcohol and selling it but for the most you don't. You have a few pockets that sell moonshine or make absynth, but its a relatively small minority.
    Two totally different substances and markets we are talking about here. Dont even bother comparing.

    See, Tucker has produced HISTORICAL evidence to the contrary to what you said and logical common sense evidence, both of which you've shrugged away based on....you thinking they're stupid.
    How are his points historical? Have i not also produced facts which you have all conviently decided to look over and repeat the same crap?


    I would dare say minors make up a very, very small percentage of the drug cartel's finances and that having them as they're only likely reasonable customer is going to be a revenue negative venture.
    Legalization wont make any difference. Junkies, i can gaurentee you, make up a very very large percentage of there business. Junkies dont want there intake to be regulated, they dont want wussy government made mixes and they sure as hell want the lowest priced they can get. You ending the war of drugs will only exasperate the current trend of drug taking.

    Of course you would, anyone would.

    Why?

    Because it's definitely an attack.

    NOTE: The above is an illustration of the absurdity of the defense being used and nothing more.

    Government's don't have rights, they have Power.

    Because Power is always abused, the United States has a government that by design is supposed to be limited in power and scope.

    One of the functions of any legitimate government is the use of power to protect the people and their property from the violent and deliberately harmful and fraudulent acts of others.

    Under no circumstances is it necessary or even desirable that government be granted enough power to protect people FROM THEMSELVES. First off, it's impossible, and secondly, that kind of power will be abused and turned to other purposes. The government's war on drug users makes both these points perfectly clear.

    You're not afraid of someone sneaking around and forcing you to smoke a joint, are you?

    You can say "no", right?

    Then you don't need your government to "protect you" from drugs.

    Drugs are not doing that.

    The government's efforts to control us in the name of drug eradication is.

    Civil forfeiture laws place the burden of demonstrating innocence on the accused, which is totally contrary to the former presumption of innocence in US law, to cite one example.

    Citizens cannot carry more than $10,000 in cash, because if "caught", it will be assumed to be drug money and impounded, under those civil forfeiture laws.

    It's called the free market.

    People will buy quality if it's available and competitively priced.

    How many bathtub-gin bootleggers stayed in the business when Prohibition was repealed?

    Hmmmm?

    They can't destroy me. I can't get addicted. I don't use them. That's a choice every adult has to make for themselves.

    Says the document you're attempting to use as your reasoning why guns are a right to be had. You can't quote the 2nd amendment as a defense but ignore the 10th.

    What has this got to do with what you quoted?
    It had to do with you stating:

    "tell me how legalization WOULDNT simply just prompt a price competition for drugs between government and cartel? "

    He already did.

    Do you have evidence of this, that cartels wont go off and try and achieve a better yield by adding even crappier substances to there mix to lower the cost?
    Historical evidence with the last time we had a major prohibition on a recreational product. What evidence do you have it wouldn't happen?

    Yes, I figure at first the cartel's will do as you said. And as I said below, ultimately it will do them no good.

    You can ignore the historical evdience if you wish, but the difference being is its at least is evidence of some kind where you've given absolutely zero evidence to support your claim other then siting its "common sense" to you...which, news flash, isn't evidence.

    Your talking about drugs, here. I dont think you realize how badly they can destroy you and how badly you can get addicted to them even the first time around. Alcohol, bad foods and cigarettes are all legal because they are ok until a certain point. Drugs (exception class C) are all bad for you, in the extreme, regulated, or not. They are bad for you.
    Some drugs you can get addicted to, very quickly. Others, like marijuana which is not in your "okay" class, have been found to be no more habit forming and addictive than alcohol or caffine from what I've read in the past.

    One single joint of marijuana is not astronomically worse for you than downing a glass of liquor on the rocks.

    Is there worse drugs? Sure. Same with alcohol. Please, get someone to take 4 shots back to back to back to back of Everclear and tell me that's somehow not "as bad" as a joint of pot.

    Okay because point 2 is distinguishable between cartel drugs and those obtained on the shop and point 4 is totally irrelevant to pot heads (including the ones the government - since it has legalized drugs - are now spawning like rabbits), and point 3 is hardly much of a valid point.
    How in the world is point 4 irrelevant to pot heads. Do you have some kind of evidence to this at all? All you're doing is stating stereotypical, emotional charged, bull****, and nothing more.

    Economics and the market simply don't bare out what you're talking about. If you can buy a product that is up to a certain standard of quality of its products, sold in a safe environment, and is legal to purchase and you can buy that for $10.00 people, in general, do not go and buy something that is of questionable quality (perhaps bad enough to cause major harm), in unsavory areas, and engaging in illegal activity to save $5.00.

    Yes, pot heads likely don't care too much now becasue there's no good alternative. Buy from one potentially sleezy, illegal dealer or buy from the other. The only real difference in the market in such a situation is the amount you trust your sleezy dealer and the price.

    However, by legalizing it, suddenly you're injecting numerous other factors into the equation...the legality of it, the location, the quality of materials, etc.

    Again, you can look at similar situations. Are people going out and buying tons of bootlegged alcohol or cigerettes? No, because there's no good reason to. Indeed, there's such poor reasons to now that most bootlegged alcohol actually sells higher, hoping instead to target a niche market and make the most they can off of that.

    Simple economics show you're emotional, unfounded, unbacked up comments are wrong.

    Two totally different substances and markets we are talking about here. Dont even bother comparing.
    No, they're not.

    Both are mind and body affecting substances that can have a negative affects and are used for recreational purposes by people and have been/are prohibited by the government and who had nefarious groups take advantage of said situation to create a black market for said goods.

    You can bitch, whine, and complain all you want about how they don't compare and attempt to invalidate any argument based on that, but all you're doing is showing every neutral person reading this that you've got nothing to go on...no facts, no history, NOTHING....and are thus running scared from actual facts presented by the other side.

    How are his points historical? Have i not also produced facts which you have all conviently decided to look over and repeat the same crap?
    Please, what facts have you shown other than saying "its common sense" that by legalizing a material it will actually increase the profits and reach of groups who attempt to illegally sell it?

    Please, what facts have you shown that show that the legalization of it would result in an extremely hightened amount of youths using it.

    Please, link me to the posts you've posted these "facts" because I'd be happy to go back and read them. So far I've seen a bunch of "opinion" on your part, trumped up as "common sense", that references nothing but your own views. The only thing you've said I can remember as a fact is that most other places in the world ban them, which in and of itself isn't an argument nor proves anything that you're saying as a plea to majority does not make something correct.

    Where as Tucker has pointed out where a parrellel issue historically, the prohibition of a substance that is detrmenetal to health and is used as a recreational substance, has backed up the things he's saying is likely to happen in this case.

    Legalization wont make any difference. Junkies, i can gaurentee you, make up a very very large percentage of there business. Junkies dont want there intake to be regulated, they dont want wussy government made mixes and they sure as hell want the lowest priced they can get. You ending the war of drugs will only exasperate the current trend of drug taking.
    Proof?

    I'm JUST as credible stating that while they make a great deal of money off junkies, large amounts of casual users aslo greatly influence their streams of revenue. Many of these junkies however ARE likely to feed their habit through legal means if they're able to, even if they can't get as "good" of stuff, because the alternative of "get it legal, but not as strong perhaps" is not as an extreme alternative as "stop doing it" which is the alternative currently. As well, much like alcohol, there will probably be different varietys of "Strength" that people could buy that would make up for the issue. Mass production, as well, mixed with legalized sell is an ingredient for higher profits meaning likely lower prices in stores to purchase, thus further hurting the cartel's.

    Guess what, what I said above is just as credible, just as much "common sense", just as provable, just as legitimate, as anything you just said because you've backed it up with nothing.
