If you can pump your body full of alcohol, which is just as dangerous (hell, maybe even MORE dangerous) than drugs, then why isn't there a prohibition of alcohol right now?

Oh wait. There was. But there isn't anymore. Hm.

Fuck this shit man. If drugs was legalized, then the government would collect all the fucking money and waste it on wars we don't give a fuck about. Man, fuck the gov. I'd rather me and my homies risk going to jail to make a couple of hundred of bucks a week than having the government collect all the profits.

Or Amsterdam, you can get high just walking through the streets. Seriously, they have hallucinogenic truffles there. That place is a teenager's wet dream.

I honestly think people have the freedom to do what they want to do without harming themselves, or others. The U.S is a country of freedom (I don't know for sure if you live in the U.S or not) but honestly, if making something legal, at least, people will likely have the guts to know they're addicted to something, and get help, without the fear of prison or jail time. Honestly, it's silly making some things illegal, my view is regulate things. Not just make them illegal

Unless it's like bath salts that turn you into a zombie


Haha ok ok that was stupid (zombie actually wasn't caused by bath salts at all :ohmygod:). I think particularly marajuana should be legalized. Although I don't do drugs, the plants are very resourceful! The twiggy...things...I don't even know what they are but did you know that they can be used to make paper? :omfg: Yeah, that would be so much better for the environment to just grow your own paper :dummy:

Haha :D

Yes definitely I believe that marijuana should be legalized. Though I don't smoke myself (don't even smoke tobacco), it's a harmless enough drug that I think should be made available, medically and recreationally.

My brother just got arrested for only smoking junk and weed inside his own house. Why should people be behind bars only because what they put inside their body? Also, it's pretty hypocritical that illicit drugs can cause a person to be violent but there were a lot of cases that alcohol abuse can cause such as well. This is one thing I will never get, whatsoever. :no:

Sorry to hear about your brother! I agree, alcohol can be just as dangerous when abused. :(

What's worse is that he was snitched on by his neighbor because she was peaking through his window. That pisses me off so much.

If the US is going to decriminalize something that they know what the consequences of it be, then why not junk or weed? Hell, weed is even less harmful than alcohol. :wtf:

Your brother should tell his dealer about that neighbor of his. That could accomplish something.

The US aint never gonna decriminalize no junk. Hell, they aint gonna decriminalize meth or coke let alone junk.

I agree that drugs should be legalized, it's obvious the current 'war on drugs', or prohibition, or whatever you want to call it, doesn't work, it only makes drugs more attractive because they're fobidden.

But I also believe that the person who uses them should have to be held accountable for what the drugs do to their bodies. I work in health care, and I've seen hundreds of people who used various drugs(though surprisingly, not people who use marajuana exclusively) to excess and gave themselves strokes, aneurysms, severe infections, and the like, and they all were having their very expensive health care (oftentimes years in residential facilities at $5000 a month) paid for by taxpayers.

I can't say I know a good solution, because I'm not inhuman and don't want to see them die in the street, but is it ethical to make those who work and take care of their bodies give up millions of their hard-earned taxes, which could be going to fund better roads or schools, to preserve the lives of those who knowingly destroyed their own bodies?

It's a touchy subject, I think. I mean, I'm in favor for government-funded healthcare for those who cannot afford private healthcare, but the bad thing about it is that there will always be leeches, people who put things into their body to such excess that they end up like the folks you mentioned, draining taxpayers' money because of their poor decisions.

I have say I've got no idea what would be a good solution to it, either. I just hope someone out there finds an answer, something that helps out both parties, and doesn't leave either one in the dust. :/

well i think you should not be able to put whatever in your body if it could be dangerous to the community or hurt someone else. (which drugs and alcohol do a lot)
i don't think it should necessarily be illegal, its just a matter of responsibility and safety.

Oh of course, I'm not saying that the person putting things in their body shouldn't do it as safely as possible and with a sense of responsibility. Drinking is one of those things where it can cause a lot of damage to people and families - I unfortunately know that from experience, as one of my family members has a problem with drinking. But just because they can't drink responsibly doesn't mean that I can't. I feel the same thing goes for recreational drugs. If someone's able to smoke marijuana in a responsible and safe way, then I'm all for it. If not, then, well, they shouldn't do it. But either way, the choice is up to them. That's what being in a free country is all about - having freedom to choose :)

Alcohol has been around longer than recorded uses of medical marijuana. Both are acceptable in my mind. They're both cornerstones of our economy with marijuana being the largest cash crop in the US.

Heroin, crack, ecstasy, opium, etc. are far more dangerous. They hook people with the first bell ringer and never let go. They even kill people the first time try sometimes. Not to mention they're highly addictive. Alcohol isn't addictive unless it's abused by the user. It takes quite a bit of drinking to become an alcoholic.

We also use the non-drinkable forms of alcohol in hospitals, schools, as fuel, at home, etc. Alcohol is a vital part of our society despite how destructive it may be to those who abuse alcohol.

Hemp would have had the same glorious future as a vital part of our society had the petroleum industry not killed the hemp production in the US and most of the world in the early 1900's.
