    Rare agreement with you but you are right on!
    (& it's time to legalize prostitution & gambling too)

    Government has no business trying to operate like a church!...Stay out of victimless moral questions entirely!

    You offered nothing constructive, you denigrated an entire group of people, you never explained your position you only offered insult, you ran off, you then demanded that people treat you better than you were treating others. I don't get where your sense of entitlement comes from, but you shouldn't be surprised when people throw back what it is that you are trying to dish out. If you can't take it, don't dish it out.

    Imo recreational drug use needs to have a responsible limit, and that responsible limit inherently excludes highly addictive drugs like meth.

    A candidate who supports legalizing hard drugs does not share my view on responsible behavior, and so I wouldn't support him.

    Are you using some kind of Random-Flame-Generator? Because non of that applies to me.

    What about highly addictive drugs such as tobacco?

    Wtf does prostitution have to do with the church?

    Prostitution bans are about stopping human slave trafficking, not enforcing a religion.

    Ahh man, here we go again.

    Now thats what i want to hear, Weatherman. Anybody on this forum who advocates the legalization of all drugs, have a very quetionable state of mind. Do you know what that would do to society? Do you know what it is already DOING to society? Are you all ignorant to the effects of drugs on lives, and families?

    Those who advocate such legalization have serious, serious mental issues, and obviously lack much intelligence and education.

    My point is that whenever government tries to legislate morality, it is doomed to failure. Prostitution is something that the church can preach against, not the government. What adult, consenting individuals do in the privacy of the bedroom is none of my (or yours) business. Same is true of drugs, overeating, gambling ..whatever!

    I'm more concerned with the highly dangerous environment involved in meth production then anything else.

    Advocating legalization is not the same as advocating drug abuse. No sane person advocates abusing drugs, booze, Twinkies or anything else. The fact is that criminalization of these things does nothing to stop or even slow their abuse.

    Again, no one is advocating drug abuse or alcoholism. Education is the only way to stop abuse problems, not law enforcement,.
