    Re: Gunmen kill 17 people at a drug rehab in Mexico

    With as much capital as drug cartels have, what's to stop them from opening their own corporation.

    If it were legal, they'd have much less overhead (smuggling).. and would be able to compete with major drug companies here.

    *yawn*


    btw, you were the one questioning my experience with illicit drugs... as if because I had no personal experience, I couldn't have an opinion.

    How so? Explain how mass murder or any violent crime would be a thing of the past if we just made cocaine, heroine, crystal meth, PCP, and LSD legal.

    Marijuana? I don't see the value in it, but I don't see the harm in it either.

    But the people shot at the drug rehab were not pot heads.

    Ending prohibition almost bankrupted the mobs here who ran illegal liquor... until the gov made gambling and other rudimentary things illegal... so they could keep up the good fight of supplying black market goods / services and stay in power.
    I can't believe you're serious.

    Heroine and cocaine can never be regulated the way liquor is.

    LSD, PCP, crystal meth..? Yeah, they're all just like beer.

    Who would benefit most from drug legalization? Illegality causes massive inflation of prices for the cartels. Why would they want to lower their prices?

    Where did I say anything about regulating them?

    Why should the government regulate them in the first place? People can make their own ****ing decisions.. and drugs aren't the greatest of choices.. if they wanna smoke some **** or snort some **** up.. as long as they're not hurting anyone else... **** them.

    And no, I don't care about anyone else's family or any other bull**** that you'll respond with.

    Alcohol kills more people than all the drugs you have named, combined. Your point is what?

    First of all, you made the dopey comparison to the end of prohibition. You do realize that the government regulates liquor sales??

    And answer this question: When all these smokers and snorters run out of stuff to smoke and snort... and they run of money to pay of all their drugs... What does a person addicted to meth, heroine, cocaine typically do when he/she needs money to buy drugs?

    COMMIT CRIME!!!

    Are you starting to get why hard drugs are different than liquor??? Sure, the smoking and snorting and shooting doesn't hurt anyone but the drug addict... But its the ARMED ROBBERY and HOME INVASION and MUGGING and THEFT that hurts the rest of us.

    And no, I don't care about anyone else's family or any other bull**** that you'll respond with.
    I don't know what that means except that you don't care about the harm a drug addict does to his/her own family. Not your problem. Right?

    Neat, cause I made a comparison I am implying the government regulates something.


    Here, I'll spell it out for you.

    Make something illegal.. like drugs.. Or selling organs.

    And you create a black market for it.

    Who generally controls the black markets for these things? Well.. pretty bad people... tbh.

    Oh, and if they commit a crime.. then punish them for the crime they committed..


    That's pretty simple.


    Oh, and yes.. I could give a **** about anyone else's family.

    Some drug users already do this... So, again, what is your point?

    Are you starting to get why hard drugs are different than liquor??? Sure, the smoking and snorting and shooting doesn't hurt anyone but the drug addict... But its the ARMED ROBBERY and HOME INVASION and MUGGING and THEFT that hurts the rest of us.
    Please support your asinine assertions. It would seem you think that armed robbery, home invasion, theft and mugging will increase if drugs are legalized... Please prove this.

    I don't know what that means except that you don't care about the harm a drug addict does to his/her own family. Not your problem. Right?

    Way to be compassionate toward others...
    Emotional or physical harm? Physical harm is prohibited by law, emotional harm is not something anyone can help with.
