    Wouldn't that be tied directly to the number of users? That is to say, if tobacco is much more used than meth, wouldn't saying that tobacco kills more people be somewhat misleading in this context?

    No that I'm prepared to give here, no. My opinion is based on my experiences and training with Centro-Civico of NY, a sex-ed group targeting Hispanics and other minorities, where I gave presentations on everything from how to put on a condom to how to clean needles on the street (private ownership of cringes is illegal in NY witch increases sharing needles exponentially).

    I also vaguely recall a few of my grade school teachers stating the same, but again that's not something I could source.

    Personally I think there are different kinds of libertarians, even using the American narrow meaning, it is the atomistic individualists that are the problem. There are better sorts, even among the American style so to speak.
    I wish they would speak out more. Libertarians have a strong voice in Glenn Beck if only they would back away from their radical ideas on drugs and prostitution.

    Also death is only one of the many effects one has to look at.

    Tobacco is a lot less likely to **** up your head or life, at least until decades later you get diagnosed with lung cancer or something.

    Again, anti-prostitution law has NOTHING to do with religion. Not in any way, shape or form.

    Anti-prostitution law has to do with preventing sex-slave trafficking and the abuse of women through prostitution.

    I was a heavy drug user most of my life, I could tell you stories about that....

    Odd but true story: when I was in the navy, the random urinalysis was great for finding marijuana use, but sucked for drugs such as acid...

    My point exactly: decades later.

    Here in SD the reservations are riddled with meth addicts. People loose their lives in a matter of days, not years.
