    No problemo...

    Enjoy your morning narcotics. It's midnight on this side of planet Earth and I'm going to bed... which means you have about 12 hours to explain yourself before I rip into you.

    As a former SA Counselor, and a clean and sober American...I say legalize and regulate everything. It won't increase or decrease usage and abuse, but it will reduce the harmfull effects of "bad" dope and poison meth. Along with reducing our dependance on foreign drugs.

    Can you tell mewhat you base the bolded part on? I would be especially interested in the answer due to your knowledge of the subject as a SA councilor. It seems wrong, based on my experiences as a user.

    That's just not true. Of course is these drugs were legalized they would be much more popular and used much more. If you use hardcore drugs, law will eventually reprimand you. The assurance that there is no law against using such substances would increase use. That is just basic logic.

    I have always had a reservation for serious drugs, legalizing anything like cocaine or heroine is foolish talk and will never be reality. Marijuana is a possibility and one that I support... Keep in mind that if it was legalized, billions of dollars of education about it would be necessary. People also need to understand what they are putting into their body...

    Re: Which drugs should be legalized for recreational use?

    In the U.S. (due to lack of capability to enforce the law and the fact what is thus needed is public healthcare aproaches) id leaglise it all.

    In my country, new zealand, I would only legalise those drugs which did not have severe chemically adictive properties (coke and H especially), because I think we are able to effectively neutralise supply of these substances.

    So id be looking to legalise weed, acid, shrooms, ecky and the likes.

    Main problem is I dont want retard flooding my country on holidays just looking to get ****ed up. As nice as money is, I dont want to live in a narco tourism hotspot.

    Consider the risks users of such drugs are already taking when engaging in behaviours that are not illegal. I do not believe jail provides a disinsentive that other risks of using junky drugs do not. Can you think of many people who would use heroin just ebcause it was legal?

    Re: Which drugs should be legalized for recreational use?

    I think the fundamental question that has to be asked for legalizing drugs is what the costs are for having it legal or illegal. Fact is, illegal substances provide the majority of funding for organized crime.

    One doesn't have to a fan of marijuana to figure out that its considerably less dangerous than funding drug gangs so powerful that they can destabilize the entire country of Mexico. Look at prohibition in the 20's and how quickly is created criminal empires from what used to be a legal substance.

    Marijuana is no more mind altering than alcohol, and impossible to overdose on. More people get murdered because marijuana is illegal in a year than have died from Marijuana usage in all of history. Is a stoner worse than well-funded criminal organizations who consider murder a part of doing business?

    Hard drugs have the same problems, although its less clear cut considering the added danger of the substances. Ideally the substance would decriminalized enough so that criminals don't make and distribute it, but be illegal enough to prohibit use. Perhaps they could be bought in the pharmacy, but it still illegal to use without a doctors approval.
