    Of course drugs should be decriminalized, there's no legitimate reason for them to be illegal and no reason whatsoever why our jails should be full of drug users.

    I can think of a legitimate reason. Drugs would create addicts and addicts would create crime as an excuse for thier bad behavior and their would be many people who would sympathize with these criminals. Drugs can't be legal because it alters a person's brain chemistry, hell I'm even in favor of war being illegal because war ruins every participant in it. You either die or come home a misery.

    No, you don't criminalize something because SOME individuals MIGHT commit crimes while under the influence or because of desiring the influence. If we were going to do that, we would criminalize alcohol, being poor, and peer pressure.

    Commiting crimes while under the influence is a completely separate thing and would be treated as such.

    As for creating addicts... most of us are addicted to *something*. Hell, most of the ****ing country can't leave the house in the morning without their bloody caffeine fix.


    Drugs can't be legal because it alters a person's brain chemistry.

    Besides, if I want to alter my brain chemistry, who the hell is the government to tell me I can't?

    I know it's not the government's business. But it is the government business to preserve order and security. Do you want for this country to end up like Mexico?

    Yes, I do. In fact, I want the United States to go above and beyond what Mexico has done, and legalize the sale, production, and distribution of these drugs as well.

    The ONLY restrictions I would place on drugs at all are: 1) Make it illegal to share needles, 2) Limit the use of violence-inducing drugs to special clinics where doctors and security guards are on hand.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    Uhh the reason Mexican crime is so rampant is BECAUSE of the war on drugs. If drugs were legalized, the drug cartels would have no reason to exist. This is an important step for Mexico, but it doesn't go nearly far enough, because the sale and production of drugs are still illegal.

    Whoa! I don't think that's going to happen. We aren't going to lose that quality of being America. People will still work hard and play hard and build families and be American.
