    Yes. The whole purpose of the government is to ensure that the citizens may enjoy a safe environment. Otherwise, who needs a government?

    Re: Should LSD be legal?

    Absolutely the worse single experience from something I ever had. Walls breathing, ceiling dripping and completely out of my mind. For me it was like living hell.

    Wouldn't give it to my favorite enemy.

    So should you be allowed to eat fatty foods? Should you be allowed to sit around your house? Own a gun? Run with scissors? Smoke a cigarette? Sleep less than 7 hours a night? Where exactly are you drawing this line of the governments job to protect you from yourself?

    Again, why are you asking?
    My point was that popular speech and wholesome activities don't require the protection of our rights, our rights are about stopping the government from oppressing unpopular speech/activities.

    The individual is the smallest minority and nobody is going to go after Mickey Mouse.

    When you say, "Freedom wasn't designed to encourage self destruction." my response was to say that it was designed to protect it though. Just because something is legal doesn't mean the government encourages it.

    EDIT: Freedom of speech DOES protect vulgarity.

    It was first accidentally synthesized by someone investigating the properties of ergot I believe. It was used by psychologists while it was legal to treat schizophrenia and researched by the Army for the potential to be somewhat of a truth serum.

    Albert Hofmann of Sandoz Pharmaceuticals was famous for synthesizing LSD.

    Timothy Leary was responsible for popularizing psychedelic drugs with his advocacy and research at Harvard during the 60's. There were also rumors and some film at the time showing that the military was experimenting with drugs to enhance a soldiers senses.

    Well sure, if we make everything legal there'll be no more crime.
