The people who scream the loudest for decriminalization are the furthest from having to deal with it.

Those on here who scream about the legalization of drugs and how it is unconstitutional have never had to tell parents that their 17 YO daughter overdosed and was found dead in a Walmart bathroom.

You could have stopped at unconstitutional. Beyond that your emotions are irrelevant.

Replace drugs with guns and tell me how it sounds.

Drugs are common and readily avalible, and easy enough to get. People will get them regardless of legality. People will say banning it keeps people from doing it, it doesn't. Your rather going to break the law and get it or you will care about your health and wellness and avoid it.

Murder is illegal yet relatively common here in the U.S.

Have the laws stopped murder? Should we legalize murder? If the standard for passing laws is total prevention, then nothing can be illegal, can it?

The difference is murder is malum in se, ingesting a substance is malum prohibitum. There's a big difference between poisoning yourself and poisoning someone else.

When I was 17 it was easier to get any given drug than alcohol or cigs. You had to have someone that was older buy those. No one carded for drugs.

I never tried drugs but knew plenty who did.

I wonder how many parents/familiy members have been called over a dead kid/relative due to the gang/cartel violence that comes with drugs being illegal?

How many 17 year olds die because they drove drunk? Ban alcohol?

I dont think the death tolls would go up if drugs where legalized. Most people know its bad for you and will kill you. Kids would have to get someone who's 21 to buy as opposed to just knowing who sells.

You'll always have some idiots who will do the harder stuff. Their funeral.

I was 6 the first time I got drunk. When I got older I would sneak alcohol every chance I could but you can only get away with that for so long. I started smoking weed and doing other drugs when I was 13 because they were easy to get but alcohol was always what I prefered. When I got my fake ID at 15 I went almost exclusively with drinking, smoking on occasion if it was going around at a party or such but I could take it or leave it.

I haven't had either since April 13 1993. If one of my kids was going to use one or the other and it was up to me to decide which it would be weed.

The question isn't whether or not drugs are bad; it's whether or not drug laws have a positive or negative effect on health, liberty, violent crimes, property crimes, etc. It's a complex issue so more effort should be put into studying it using statistics. And we need to get people to think about it with comprehensive critical thinking.

Our family got a knock on the door by cops at 4 in the morning telling my parents their oldest daughter died in a a drunk driving car accident.

Should we try prohibition again?

Sycophant or easily moved individual?

If mj was legal, 17 years old teenagers would not be legally able to purchase it. Additionally, do you know how many 17 year old teens commit suicide with a gun? Let's ban guns too right?

Obviously because its illegal and no one cards for it.

Its easier for a kid to get coke than alcohol and cigs.

For a kid to get alcohol, he/she has to have a buddy who's 21.

Long story short: The CIA sets up puppet regimes in other countries (e.g., Afghanistan) to grow the raw product. They then create a homeland "war on drugs" in order to militarize the police forces here in the uSA so as to eliminate the domestic productions of drugs (e.g., marijuana), which these domestic crops cut into the CIA's profit margin. Then you bring in wall street bankers and the ultra rich to launder the drug money. Then...

Oh wait... I said long story short huh? Sorry. The CIA, by proxy, sells the drugs to the 17 year old kids here in America.

Officer, would you mind telling us exactly how many times you've had to inform someone, that a loved one overdosed solely on marijuana?

Really? We've been discussing hard drugs for 9 pages now.

She OD'd on heroin mixed with a little bit of rat poison.

I haven't but a close friend informed the parents of a kid who died in a crash.

Only thing in his system was MJ.

and yet it would happen weather its legal or not. just because some people don't know how to handle their sh** doesn't mean others should be punished who want to do drugs responsibly and recreationally and yet to allow cigarettes and alcohol is complete hypocrisy. same can be said with guns just because their are people who don't know howto properly handle guns doesn't mean everyone should be punished.
