I just wanted to know where everyone stands on the Drug War. It is a large poll but I wanted close to every opinion represented. So what is your opinion of the drug war? Pick a number that best describes your views.
1.) Stay the course. Keep the laws the way they are, and only increase funding to match inflation and a rising population.
2.)Amp up the drug war. Increase funding exponentially, add more mandatory minimums, militarize all borders with troops, allow for militarized drug checkpoints within country, eliminate treatment as an alternative to sentencing, give police more power in searching, use the powers of the patriot act to investigate drug crimes etc.
3.)Demand and harm reduction dominated policy. Focus transferred from justice department to medical based policy. Treatment over prosecution. Harm reduction such as clean needle exchange, methadone maintenance clinics, etc.
4.)Legalize marijuana and/or other "soft" drugs. Recognize that drugs are not equally harmful, possibly contain policies from #3 as well.
5.)Decriminalization. Focus away from the user and focus resources toward targeting supply, while still making use an infraction. May or may not be coupled with policies from #3.
6.)Legalize all drugs. Apply regulations for the sale such as age restrictions, standardize the potency and control for impurities. May or may not be taxed based on political preferences...
7.)Medical marijuana. Federally recognized as a legal medication, otherwise recreational use is illegal/decriminalized.
