    Clarification is always good.

    Really? I want that? Funny, I don't think legalizing drugs would reduce access to children.

    Most likely not. It will shift drugs into a regulated part of industry. But the same is true with cigarettes and we see how well that stops some underage teenagers from smoking. Still you could ask would you be more comfortable with kids getting drugs from a gas station or from a drug dealer.

    I could go with decriminalizing and regulating drugs (pot is a no-brainer, but harder stuff would need to be better regulated).

    But legalizing drugs? Would it stop this? No - it would just lighten up on the drug-users, the cartels would still be in business
    Really? Then where are all the cigarette cartels? I can guarantee you that if tobacco was illegalized, they would exist, since tobacco is supposedly as addictive as herion.

    Criminalizing drugs hasn't prevented access for children now. Hell, kids probably have an easier time scoring drugs than adults do.

    Well, there's also other reasons why they aren't being checked or scrutinized - it's because, quite often, we have law enforcement officers who are in with the drug trade.

    Who exactly is going to regulate meth and speedballs? People saying 'harder stuff' should be regulated are out of their ****ing minds. Junkies, ex-junkies and wannabes alike.

    Actually, I've never done hard drugs, and have no desire to. I just want to decriminalize drugs because I think 1) prohibition doesn't work and 2) treatment for drug use is infinitely better than incarceration for drug use. So I say let people use drugs if they want to and help them get off it if they so choose, and if not so be it. I think that's a hell of a lot better than locking them up in prisons, being trapped with violent offenders, and then get caught up in the vicious cycle of poverty and crime to survive because they're an ex-felon and no longer are considered for anything but menial jobs.
