    The part in bold is the stupidest thing I've read today. Drugs have been, and continue to be used for a wide variety of reasons in numerous cultures (e.g. shamanic, celebratory, etc, etc). Their purpose is almost never to harm the person who takes them. Their effect is sometimes to harm the person who takes them, but that's a different issue entirely. Unless you've never ingested either coffee or alcohol, you, too, have partaken of a non-harm oriented use of drugs.

    And no, drug use does not "often" harm others. In fact drug use as such almost never harms others. What harms others is other stupid/violent/criminal behavior caused by drug use.

    To cause harmful behavior is to cause harm to anyone who is adversely affected by that behavior.

    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    By that definition, you cause harmful behavior by just existing. Supply and demand dictates that your demands for food, housing, etc. increase everybody else's cost of living, which an obvious adverse effect for everyone else.
