    There are already designated areas for addicts to go to and that is areas where they are less likely to be caught: Either into the concert jungle or the backwoods.

    Yeah, but make it legal and they will be in my face. I don't care how they live, I don't care what they do, but I don't want to watch the misery on a regular basis. To each his own, just keep your problems to yourself.

    We should start treating meth like any other biological agent.

    If a community wants to ban the manufacture and sale of meth, more power to them, if a community wants to permit the manufacture and sale of meth, more power to them. Eventually, the best framework will emerge and will be implemented across the country. Trial and error, decentralization of power, and personal choice are the prescribed methods of social policy per the US Constitution.

    So what? Her choice. I've seen people destroy their lives with alcohol, too.

    I do not advocate legalizing any drugs currently illegal, certainly not hard drugs. I don't really care much one way or another about marijuana, but I think legalizing harder drugs would be detrimental to society. I think the social and legal stigma associated with those drugs is a good thing.

    Just let state and local governments regulate drugs. Localities with bad regulatory frameworks will fail and vanish, and the ones with good regulatory frameworks will thrive and serve as an example to the rest of the country.

    Re: Legalize Hard Drugs?

    meh I just posted in another thread on the topic because it had drifted that way, then I saw this one, yes I am all for legalizing drugs.. all of them, legalizing them does not mean more users, in fact ideally under a properly developed legal setting aimed to control drugs, new users would be discouraged.

    my other post I just made(a bit ahead of some jumping in on this thread and this discussion, but relevant):

    What I consider the ideal scenario is a two pronged distribution method for hard drugs.

    1) pay to play - if you want to use recreationally, so be it, your body, your prerogative., you pay and are taxed for this - with the funds from this supporting rehab programs open to all, and also to support the other prong.

    2) Free maintenance - This is for the bottom of the barrel down and out cases, if an addiction goes to the point where you would be stealing, or selling your body, or whatever.. there will be maintenance dose available for free.. you must go to a clinical setting and have the drug administered there.. in this setting the user would slowly build trust with trained specialists (ideally one assigned their "case") who can at least look out for their well being, and try to persuade the user to get the treatment they need to kick their habit.

    unfortunately case 2 segregates for the poorest of the poor, and does not address the addict who is able to finance his habit, for them the best we could do is to offer treatment minus the negative stigma and the cost, and hope they seek it out.

    We could end all crime if we made murder, rape,theft,child porn, statutory rape, arson, drunk driving and many other things legal, there would be no crime.

    from drug distribution and pay for treatment with taxes.
    I would rather that my tax dollars be used to incarcerate their ass, not bail them out of a mess they deliberately got themselves into. Drug treatment is not the responsibility of the tax payers.

    Who agrees with me?
    Let me get this straight not only do you want hard drugs legalized but you want me to pay for their treatment? Are you high(of course you are, why am I asking a stupid question) because that would make sense for why you came up with such a dumb idea.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    How is keeping them illegal on a Federal level at all beneficial? All it does is force drug addicts into black markets and prisons, where the problem grows and festers.
