    I have no idea what "loose your place" means or how it relates to discussion.

    That's another good example.

    I've noticed this about you over the last couple days. It's as though what has been said in the previous few pages slips away from your attention. I've sen it in a few threads.

    Someone says something, you respond, they replay to your response and you soon forget what you originally said which they were relying to. The context is lost so future references are not understood.

    This occasionally happens to me also whenever something is going on at home.

    I hope everything is well with you and yours

    Well at least legalization of marijuana will happen. Perhaps the decriminalization of those other harder drugs so that users go for treatment, rather than being imprisoned. I believe you mentioned that that was desirable.

This might not net a lot for the low-end dealers but for the kingpins who have millions, it's a jackpot. We treat all drugs the same, we do not treat cocaine and crack differently because the rich tend to use one over the other. All the confiscated drugs go into mandatory drug treatment programs. People leave no longer addicted. There is a point at which repeat offenders have shown they are not willing to change, at which point they are handled in some way, we can debate that at another time.

    We work with other countries to eliminate the drug trade within their borders. Those who refuse to work with us, we cut off all foreign aid. We execute all drug mules, drug runners and drug dealers crossing the border. Heck, leave a pile of bodies, it might dissuade anyone from trying it again.

    I have no doubt it could be done. I doubt America has the stomach for it.
    As an American, I certainly don't. You're right, I'd rather legalize drugs.

    Re: Mexico Decriminalizes All Drugs!

    On the question as to whether it is a right to consume drugs oneself, without harming others, or whether the state has the right to deny you this right, I present to you John Stuart Mill:

    Mill's On Liberty addresses the nature and limits of the power that can be legitimately exercised by society over the individual. One argument that Mill develops further than any previous philosopher is the harm principle. The harm principle holds that each individual has the right to act as he wants, so long as these actions do not harm others. If the action is self-regarding, that is, if it only directly affects the person undertaking the action, then society has no right to intervene, even if it feels the actor is harming himself. He does argue, however, that individuals are prevented from doing lasting, serious harm to themselves or their property by the harm principle. Because no-one exists in isolation, harm done to oneself also harms others, and destroying property deprives the community as well as oneself. [7] Mill excuses those who are "incapable of self-government" from this principle, such as young children or those living in "backward states of society".

    Everyone who thinks America should decriminalize/legalize drugs is a druggie.

    I like to thank trolls. I think it's like a pat on the head to a dog who just peed in the house. Massive confusion and humor ensues.

    Absolutely not. I will support legalization of all drugs and loosening of restrictions on purchase for adults-- but decriminalization is nothing more than the law tacitly approving of illegal behavior by refusing to prosecute those who patronize and support criminal enterprises. I would rather commit our nation to the failed War on Drugs for the next century than ever allow our legal system to be subverted in this fashion.
