My opinion is less about freedom as much as I just do not believe the laws work, period. The drug black market is a hydra, cut off one of the heads and two more fill its place. The benefits of actually controlling the drugs through regulation far out weigh the health and social costs. Drug prohibition profits funds gang activity, international crime syndicates, terror groups, dictators, fuels corruption in law enforcement and government, leads to racial disparities in sentencing, prison overcrowding and all this barely scratches the surface of how deep the damage goes. Not to mention how much the drug war costs the tax payer, last time I checked it was 64 billion with a B, per year.

All the drugs listed should be legal. I am an adult and I own my own body. What I decide to put into it is my own business and not the governments.
Now with that being said; I don't use any illegal drugs because I chose not to. Not because of the law.
As long as they do not infringe on someone else's rights including the unborn, it should be legal.
No Lives Matter
My comment was meant to rub salt in the wounds of Loosertarians everywhere, to make their failure hurt that much more. Either your politics are weak and need to die, or they need to get their **** together and start doing something productive.
It's my typical reaction to one-liner political views.
While I agree that I am walking a fine line here, my commentary is not meant to be personal.
