    Why can't they just make it legal for you to possess and not partake? Any reason you have why that is unreasonable to exist?

    I have always believed 100% that the main reason why drugs are illegal is because they spur creative thinking. Addiction didn't exist on the scale it does today when international drug laws were formed, so it's not about health and safety. This is about power. Addiction exists because of lack of agency. People can't come forward when they are starting to spin out of control because they will be punished, so they spin deeper.

    I should be able to put whatever I want in my body as part of my exploration of this life, and no one else has any say in that. Everything that has gone wrong in the world because of drugs is actually because of drug LAWS, not the drugs themselves.

    Furthermore, where did I say that people should be able to do drugs WHERE they please?
    Please, if it were up to you, people would be taking heroin breaks throughout the day. Oh but smoking cigarettes, now that would be banned.

    I see that failure to read and comprehend is a common problem on these forums.
    And I see you have a short term memory and logic issue. Wonder why.

    You know - what's interesting about this is that both sides argue the same point.

    Those who support smoking "rights" say "the government is trying to control us by saying we can't smoke."
    and those who don't support smoking "rights" say "the tobacco companies are trying to control us by persuading us to smoke or accept it."

    The problem is I am an adult. I own my body and I or we are perfectly capable of deciding what we can put in our body.

    It is the second hand smoke and butts that seem to be the real problem on this issue. Some smokers are inconsiderate assholes, and unfortunately all smokers are paying the price.

    Oh My god! No - the government regulating ****! Holy crap - since when did this start happening!

    What are we going to do!

    Yeah well - I get carded when everyone in my family is sick and I have to buy cold medicine
    And if I want to buy one for myself and one for my kids I'm told I can't buy one adult and one child medicine - I have to choose which med I'm going to purchase.

    Why is that? It's because of drug users - meth cookers.

    Yep - the filthy pricks always ruin it for everyone else - don't I know.

    And when it comes to something like smoking - which I do from time to time - I really don't give a ****. . . if it bothers you that much just start dipping or chewing . Absolutely NO government regulation on when and where for those activities!

    I should have been clearer.

    I smoke, I am also an adult. If I own my own person the government should have little say into what I can or can't put into my own body.

    So some rude smokers are making it hard on the rest of us.

    Sorry for the confusion.... and second hand smoke, lol.
