Drug Legalization - Please read fully.

All drugs should be legalized, regulated and taxed. No I am not a pot head nor do I advocate the use. But it is under the personal choice of the adult if they choose to use drugs or not. In addition is also their responsibility of the individual to know the ramifications of their choices. If legalized, there will be enormous revenue from tax(look up Colorado and California), in addition to saving tax money by no longer arresting and placing people in jail people for using drugs. Gang violence will decrease since the government will own the monopoly on drugs. In addition, the current Mexican drug cartels will no longer have a reason to continue their violent means for profit.

  • LIBERTARIAN (United States) 4 years ago They're illegal because (1) govt. & their drug-running cohorts don't like any competition. (2) A majority of the prisons/ jails would be freed-up because drugs & weed would no longer be illegal (which would no longer land innocent people in jail who were rightfully exercising their human rights to consume or sell that which should NOT be prohibited to BEGIN with!) And empty jails aren't profitable for big brother. (3) People would self-medicate. Which IS NOT meddling govt.'s d#mned business anyhow! But then, people in serious pain and those with deadly diseases would actually be more pain-free then. And we ALL know that govt. could care a LESS about its citizens or our health! They want to CONTROL us in ALL aspects of our lives.... from every little aspirin we take to where we LIVE (the U.N's emerging "sustainable communities" of commie Agenda 21).

  • jamesg1951 (Canada) 4 years ago I object because many people die from drug overdoses, drugs are a danferous substance like guns , explosives, dangerous chemicals and toxins and such dangerous substances need to be controlled by laws restricting their use and possession.

  • Ferdob (Ireland) 4 years ago I agree because drug prohibition is an assault on freedom. It is ridiculous for a state to use force to prevent a person from ingesting a substance.

    Drug prohibition causes more harm than good, namely invasion of privacy (searches and house raids), imprisonment of people who've hurt no one, theft of property (by police again), creation of a black market and immensely powerful drug cartels, an excuse to harass and arrest poor people, the prevention of people using substances to enjoy themselves more/ help them through a depression/ help them during an illness, and many many more.

    Drug prohibition is based on superstition and hysteria. For example, in most countries cannabis is banned while alcohol is legal. Even though cannabis has a multitude of medical applications, and is quite a harmless substance, it is banned.

    Drugs are used as a scapegoat to distract people from society's real problems (an overbearing wealthy elite controlling society, programming by media, etc.).

    Drug prohibition doesn't stop drug abuse or help addicts. The way to reduce the amount of people destroying their lives with drugs is to eliminate the conditions which produce that behaviour. For example, heroin is consumed almost exclusively by 2 groups: rock stars and the destitute. People who are poor, who are marginalised and feel dehumanised, who are hopeless and sorrowful, who grow up in areas where they rub shoulders with drug pushers, will fall into the chasm of drug abuse. The fact that drug use can be predicted by geography (heroin hot-spots, etc.) demonstrates this point.

    People can have wonderful experiences when drugs are used properly. Many people say they became better people - more generous, understanding, and contemplative - after using MDMA and/or LSD/psilocybin. People who want to have such positive experiences are persecuted for no good reason.

    Drug prohibition means that because of a culture of non-acceptance, people do not learn to use drugs safely and in proper amounts (compare with a society which favours sexual abstinence over safe-sex).

    The list goes on and on!

  • Freedoms (United States) 4 years ago has anyone considered the fact that this would increase the child abuse of drugs, making is much easier for loved ones to purposly or accidently use, sell, overdose, get killed trying to sell,destroy there young minds and so on, THATS WHY THERE ILLEGAL!! WAKE UP!

  • Freedoms (United States) 4 years ago I object because it allows people to legally destroy there minds then breed (on drugs) an make more stupid people in this world, i say continue to educate people and children about drug dangers and step up on drug enforcement, penalties, and rehibilitation.
    life is hard, but even harder if your legally stupid!

  • DylanCalero (United States) 4 years ago I object because there are drugs out there that are far worse than marijuana, and allowing the people to use them would only weaken us further.

  • soldierunit113 (Canada) 4 years ago I object because if people are stupid enough to do drugs, then they should be punished.

  • goodforthegreatermasses (United States) 4 years ago this is absolutely correct, what you decide to put in your body is your choice and none others, doesnt matter what it is it isnt anyone elses right or choice to tell someone what the can or cannot take or smoke, your body your choice....period.

  • Anonymous 4 years ago YES I THINK THATS AN AWESOME IDEA except I dont like the idea of the taxes getting in the way... I would really like to see more money in my life somehow...

  • Frankhey (Canada) 4 years ago okay, touchy topic. What if? instead of legalizing all forms of drugs, we legalize all natural drugs, including tobacco (leaving it alone except for the next points), any drug that must be chemically altered, engineered are either abolished or left to the doctors.
    As it stands now all drugs are legal if you get the doctor to sign off on it.
