    I don't see any reason for any drug to be banned. It is not the place of the government to tell us what we can and can't consume.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Obviously, you've never consumed some hi-potency shrooms you didn't know were hi-potency shrooms.

    You have to be careful with "unrefined" hallucinogens such as shrooms and peyote. Their potency can vary widely. It might actually be safer to take synthesized psilocybin or mescaline in a controlled dosage.

    Heroin should be banned.

    I'll say things like crack and meth and other "cooked" drugs should be illegal.

    Why? It always seems to me that people who are "liberated" in this regard, approve of THEIR drugs but want to make OTHER peoples drugs illegal.

    This is just a microcosm of what's wrong with America. I approve of this, so that should be illegal.

    I think every single drug should be legal BUT require a permit, certified by a physician and be sold, without any advertising, in small quantities in phrarmacies. Otherwise, you will find a big sign at the 7-11 reading, CRACK - its whats good for you! or METH - Number 1 rated drug in America.

    If I may quote Ron Paul, "if heroin were legal, would you go buy some?".

    If you could turn it into a vacuum, then yes I would agree. However, there are in general exceedingly negative side effects to the aggregate whole if some drugs where to be made illegal. Those bath salts that make people go crazy and eat dude's faces? See something like that is perchance left illegal. If it was just the one guy, then sure; he couldn't hurt anyone. But drugs causing psychosis or exceedingly aggressive and violent behavior is perhaps something we should heavily regulate.

    I'm mixed on the issue. While they are pretty ****ed up, people are going to choose to do them anyway. Banning them only puts users and small time dealers in prison, while the root of the problem makes serious bank. The CIA knows this better than anyone else, just ask Oliver North.

    I knew someone would make the "natural" argument. There a plenty of "natural" poisons too. Just because it's natural doesn't mean it's safe.
